ABOUT THE CHARITY

After 21 years of wildlife, farm and domestic animal rescue, this organization focuses on community animal welfare education and assisting local temples with cat and dog management through their partnership with other small organizations in the area.

The organization is developing their bovine shelter for rescued cows and water buffalo to be developed into a free energy plant by turning their waste into gas to run generators and provide electricity to their project site and neighborhood.

PROJECT DETAILS

Photographer: The project of most importance is to raise awareness about how farm animals suffer in the food industry and to provide a close up experience for people so as to create a better understanding of and perhaps even empathy for the animals. The images will be used on social networks to raise awareness and support for the project.

The temple project will also be used to help abandoned animals that deserve more attention.
