The group meets quarterly and allows for a dialogue across the groups to brainstorm solutions to these animal issues. The group is currently working on the following initiatives:

- A collective pilot project that will make the group eligible for larger grant monies that can be utilized for future projects.
Your generous donation will be put towards projects to improve the well being of animals in the region.
