Pet Meds

One vital part of the Costa Rican refuge project is medications. The Jaguar Refuge is in need of many vital medications and other animal lifestyle supplies to maintain health and cleanliness. Out of many places to turn, I contacted 1-800-PetMeds because of my knowledge on their trustworthy service and excellent history as a company. PetMeds has been kind enough to make a donation to Little Known Help Zone of a sample box including a variety of medications, toys, and other great items for the shelter! The supplies will be delivered by me in june over my 16th birthday to the refuge. We thank 1-800-PetMeds for their kindness and generosity and will keep you updated on the latest of the project.

Donation from Northeast Fleece

Thank you for your generosity!

Little Known Help Zone’s most recent project involves the Costa Rican Jaguar Rescue Center, an animal refuge centered in Puerto Viejo that takes care of injured and orphaned animals and makes effort to rehabilitate them back into the wild . For my 16th birthday, I will be visiting Costa Rica and volunteering at the refuge for a portion of my trip. The reserve is in need of some supplies, so Little Known Help Zone has made it their goal to collect this supplies to deliver on the trip. Needs include fleece blankets, electric blankets, powdered  goats milk, and medications.

After minimal success with attempts to collect donations, a wonderful surprise came in the mail. Northeast Fleece, a fleece  company based in Massachusetts, sent a package of 6 fleece blankets after I sent an email to their headquarters. These blankets are needed for the young animals of the refuge who have the potential of getting hypothermia since they no longer have the warmth of their mothers. The fleece blankets provide warmth and comfort. This donation will make all the difference for the refuge.

Little Known Help Zone would like to send a big thanks to Northeast Fleece for their generosity.

Stay tuned for continued information about the preliminary supplies collection and the trip itself.

All of the Lovely Toothbrushes

All of the Lovely Toothbrushes donated by Radius

Ever since I was a youngin, I used radius toothbrushes. They are wonderful for your mouth and just feel great. Once you switch you never go back. One distinct thing I remember on my trip to Roatan was the cab driver mentioned that the kids have little access to dental care. I love to brush my teeth and it concerned me that they may not have the ability to do that.

So remembering that Radius was only 20 minutes away from me, I wrote them a letter requesting a few child sized toothbrushes for the orphanage. I spelled out the conditions of the island and asked for a few to supply the kids in the orphanage. Within 3 days of sending, I received an email from a sweet woman saying they’d give me 50. These toothbrushes were in perfect condition, but they were the ones that wouldn’t be sold on the shelves, which was still excellent. I conversed with her for a while and then we organized when to pick up the donation. I was so ecstatic. A week later I visited them and picked up the toothbrushes and bought a few for myself as well. Everyone there was so sweet and so interested in what I was doing It was such an exciting, rewarding experience and I was so happy.

I just now packed them up and sent them out to the Roatan Children’s Fund headquarters in California. I am extremely excited for when the toothbrushes reach Roatan and the children can use them. I am so grateful for the giving nature of these local companies I know of and appreciate the generosity.
