Can’t have a pet in Beijing, but still want to help those furry critters in need? Now’s your chance to really make a difference: The Little Adoption Shop is calling for donations again to help keep his animal shelter up and running. Here’s a note from its founder, Christopher Barden:
"The Little Adoption Shop currently has more than 150 dogs in our care, and we are under constant pressure to meet our food, rent, medical and other expenses. We currently have a very safe shelter in the countryside, and an adoption center located in Shunyi, across from Euro Plaza, on the north side of the International Convention Center. Things are tough for us financially, but we are proud of the work we are doing to make it easier for rescued animals to find new homes.
We currently have seriously overdue bills, and we urgently need help!
Thank you for kindness and generosity."
More information on accounts and the dog shelter can be found here.
