As part of an initiative of Ultimate Solutions and its Sustainability program, three local companies joined forces to help the El Faro de los Animales Sanctuary in Humacao, Puerto Rico.
The companies that joined Ultimate Solutions were Chocolate Cortés and RiskOne.
With a group of volunteers, on December 17, 2023, they collaborated with the cleaning of the Sanctuary. Employees of the companies also made financial contributions that helped pay the veterinary bills and basic needs of the more than 100 dogs and cats that are currently in the facilities.
El Faro de los Animales Sanctuary is a non-profit organization that has provided shelter, medicine, food and love to abandoned dogs and cats in Puerto Rico since 2001. To date, they have rescued, rehabilitated and rehomed more than 3,000 animals. Additionally, they have an educational program that teaches young and old about compassionate and responsible care of animals.
The volunteers did work cleaning the roof, cages and rooms, as well as painting, grooming services, among others. Liza Arias, executive director of the Sanctuary, thanked the help and urged the adoption of abandoned dogs and cats to be encouraged.
