Q: Did you know that Iran has only one shelter?

Hello Everyone,

I hope you all can take the time to read this....
Ms. Motamedi runs the ONLY shelter in the entire country of Iran and her work is documented here:
It would be hard to really help VAFA because they are in Iran and, because of sanctions, it is not feasible to even donate but maybe drawing awareness and just letting people know this place exists can help. There are over 1 million Iranians living in United States, many of whom travel back and forth. If word gets out maybe some of them will support this cause on vacations back to Iran and also have their relatives still living there support the incredible mission of Ms. Fatima Motamedi who fought so hard for these dogs to be recognized.

One in one country?! That's very sad and problematic. I´ll do what i can to raise awareness. And by the way, did you know they are going to build a biotério in Portugal? Biotério means: "nursery/ breeding of animals for lab research or similar purposes". The aim of the future center of production of animals is to provide various animals (rats, rabbits or fish) to universities and laboratories in Portugal and throughout Europe. Please sign the petiton against it. Thanks

I would definitely submit this as a news entry & post this to all social networks you many belong to. Maybe more people in Iran will admire her courage & open up other shelters!
