The current political and economical situation has forced Venezuelan families to abandon their pets in the streets. It's common to see animals left in front of animal stores and veterinary clinics. In some cases, pets are simply tied up to a pole and left to fend for themselves and they often starve to death.

Due to the lack of raw material, local pet food suppliers struggle to keep up with the high demand or even to put their product on the shelves at all. Imported brands are difficult to find and extremely expensive.

It is a heartbreaking and horrific situation that won't change unless we do something to help.

We are here to Help

We supply animal shelters with:


We have teamed up with pet food suppliers in Venezuela so we can provide our furry friends a good-quality and well-balanced diet.


We organise monthly shipments from overseas with tick, flea and worm treatments as well as medicated shampoo.

Health Supplements

We ship vitamines for those furry friends that require a more extra-special care.

All of our contributions are stored at our nominated facility in Venezuela and are released to shelters upon approval from the Help an Animal team in Australia.

Our aid not only makes our best friends HAPPIER and HEALTHIER but also affords them a greater chance of finding their ultimate loving home.

Our Secret = Working together

Most of the shelters we support are located in Caracas, Venezuela. Their goal is to rescue street dogs and cats, giving them all the necessary care to bring them back to health.

Once the animal is in good health and has regained its confidence, it is put up for adoption by a forever home.

With your help, we will be able to assist more shelters and more animals.

Help an Animal receives NO government funding and relies 100% on our generous supporters.
