Luna Foundation is made up of a small group of inspirational volunteers, dedicated to changing the lives of Aruba’s street dogs and strays. Sunday September 13, between 10am-2pm they organize a fundraiser to help them with their medical expenses. This event will take place at Animal Care Clinic Paradera. You are all welcome to join and give a bit for the life of an animal.

Luna Foundation is made up of a small group of inspirational volunteers who each have experience in rescuing dogs and have witnessed first-hand just what these animals have to endure each day on the island. They are genuinely committed to promoting the importance of educating the youth, spaying and neutering, and passionate about raising awareness of animal welfare within the local communities of Aruba. The foundation receives no government funding and rely solely on your support.

The foundation is named in honor of LUNA, the first dog in Aruba’s history to be removed from an abusive home and the owner to be arrested for animal abuse and neglect. Luna’s rescue marked a major milestone for Aruba. She represents a new beginning and fresh start for all the animals on the island. Luna was found in a horrific condition. Malnourished from lack of food, covered in fleas and ticks, suffering from severe anemia and diagnosed with vaginal cancer from years of breeding. Not to mention the scars of the emotional stress she endured throughout her life. Luna’s road to recovery was a long one. Thankfully, due to a small group of patient, kind-hearted and generous people, she made a full recovery and is now living a happy and healthy life with her foster-come-adoptive family. Luna’s story has shone a spotlight on the harsh reality of what Aruba’s animals go through each day, but it also demonstrates that this kind of abuse and neglect is not acceptable and is punishable by law. With Luna as their inspiration and always at the forefront of their minds the volunteers of Luna Foundation will make sure that her story becomes a legacy for future generations of our island.
