How Can I Help SALDEA?
92% of donations go toward the delivery of services to animals and the community, according to our mission and bylaws. The remaining 8% go to administrative fees and expenses. We are an all-volunteer organization; no person is able to draw profit or salary from SALDEA funds. Please visit the About page to view our corporate documents and 990 tax returns.
Donate to Cora’s Extraordinary Veterinary Expenses
Cora was thrown from a car and suffered severe fractures to two legs. Following orthopedic surgery to repair the fractured legs, she suffered a serious infection in the surgery site on the rear leg, and then a hematoma that needed to be drained. Cora also suffers from malnutrition, anemia, and skin fungus, all of which are typical for neglected dogs. Her vet bills will amount to about $1000. We have a GoGetFunding program set up to help with her unusual expenses. You can click here to see Healing and Hope for Cora.

Sponsor a Cat
Saldea currently has a distressingly large number of gorgeous, loving, healthy, and gentle cats in foster. Some have been in foster for over two years. Why? Because people want baby kittens. If kittens miss the “cute” window of 2-6 months, adopters tend to pass them over. Hence, they become adults and somehow less attractive to the public. All these cats are sterilized and need nothing extraordinary. But the monthly cost of food and litter runs about $25/cat. Over time, the cumulative costs of maintaining 15-20 cats in foster add up, and prevent us from taking on other needy cats. A sponsor can pay $25/month for a particular cat, and Saldea can send them photos and updates about “their” cat. This way, the donor has a relationship with the cat and understands where the money is going. Please look at the Adopt a Cat and Cats in Foster Care pages and see who speaks to you. You can set up a recurring payment through PayPal for a particular cat, and we will keep you updated on your new friend!
Sponsor Community Service Projects
Even before COVID-19, SALDEA was engaged in community service work. Our mission includes helping members of the local community who help animals. Many of these open-hearted pet helpers have very little resources themselves, so we help them to help animals. We provide food, pay vet expenses, and pay for flea treatments for local animal advocates.
With the pandemic, everything has changed. Many responsible, loving pet owners lost their jobs and are struggling to feed their animals, never mind themselves. We are buying Animal Planet pet food at a steep discount from Agencias Escoffery, S.A., a local pet food distributor. We then donate the food to local families impacted by the pandemic. $25 per month will buy a large bag of pet food to help a deserving family weather this economic and epidemiological storm, or it can pay for sterilizations or flea treatments for people with limited economic means who are dedicated to helping needy animals.
