We are almost there! Just $40,000 to go to secure the land.
We are so fortunate to have the opportunity to put the rescue for dogs, cats, and who knows what else in the future, on secure ground once we secure the land. It is looking possible to have this completed by the end of the year.
Why is this important? In the US alone, 3 - 4 million dogs and cats are euthanized by shelters that are overcrowded and unable to provide permanent homes or at the very least long enough fostering for them to be adopted. The problem is not with the shelfters alone: it's a matter of overpopulation and unwanted animals. Half of the animals that go into shelters each year are adopted out.
Tara's Babies, which is an outgrowth of the compassionate activity of Jetsunma Akhon Lhamo (find out more about Jetsunma at www.tara.org) is saving lives of dogs and cats that would likely be destined to be killed due to overcrowding. Imgaine it: just because there is not a bed for you in different circumstances you would be taken away and killed. It's tragic from a buddhist perspective that holds up the equality of all the lives.
If Tara's Babies does not have to worry about location of it's animal shelter, that's one primary problem resolved that gives dogs and cats a longer life. A chance to live out their karma.
This is a good thing.
