Meet Celestino. 

 

Celestino was in a motorcycle accident about 12 years ago, and now is partially paralyzed. 

He lives alone and does a bit of woodworking for a small income.

 

Celestino has two cats and one dog that he just adores and that mean the world to him but he struggles with providing food for them, and it is always a constant worry to him that his animals will go hungry.  He also has another cat that is hanging around looking for food, but he has been “shooing” the cat away as he didn’t have enough food to feed his own pets.

 

ARF was made aware of Celestino and his situation thru one of our volunteers.  We paid him a visit and provided food for his animals.  It was a very nice meeting; Celestino is a sweet and humble man who cherishes the companionship he has with his animals.

 

ARF will be trapping and having the stray cat fixed at the January clinic.

 

We are looking for sponsors for Celestino and his animals.  The cost of food per month works out to $54.00 for the cats and his dog.  We would like to find a sponsor for each month of the year.  Is there anyone out there willing to donate to cover February?

 

Part of ARF’s mission is to assist those who genuinely care for their animals but may not have the means to do so.  It is only thru your kind donations that this can be achieved.

 

Celestino is also assisted by the Handicapped Foundation (FPI) and Buenos Vecinos.

 

As ARF now joins in helping Celestino with his beloved animals, this represents a true community effort that has improved his life for the better.

 

ARF is a small non-profit animal organization dedicated to the rescue, care, foster and adoption of the unwanted and neglected animals in Boquete and the surrounding areas.  Please visit our website at http://www.arf-boquete.com/  if you are interested in adopting an animal.  You can also help with the financial support of these animals by clicking here http://www.arf-boquete.com/donate.html 100% of our donations go to the animals.

Bud and Marcelyn of Chiriqui.Life will sponsor Celestino's animals for March.

Please tell us how to complete the donation. A direct bank transfer to ARF is the preferred method, but we will honor whatever method you indicate.

P.S.  If Celestino wants to keep the stray cat, we will increase the dollar amount of our donation.

I have known Celestino for about 10 years through my volunteer work with Fundacion Pro-Integracion (Handicap Foundation) here in Boquete.

You will not find a nicer guy anywhere. He's the one I go to when a wheel chair needs repair, or a book case needs to be built.

I'm going to buy a 50 lb bag of dog food for Celestino next time I go to Price Smart.
