Lola and Friends Animal Rescue - Where dogs and cats of two countries unite
Ways To Help
As we rely solely on the generosity of others and out-of-pocket expenses, we are always in need of funding, items, and volunteers. Scroll down throughout this page if you could help our cause!
*Rico has been experiencing occasional, short lasting seizures. We just had a donation come in to take care of his bloodwork to find the cause of these seizures. A big "thank you" to Diana. We'll keep you posted on Rico's progress*
Thank you for paying to get my bloodwork done, Diana.
