IN MY SPARE TIME…
I enjoy worldwide travel, long walks and playtime with my dog, reading, great films, exercise, and studying the techniques and recipes of the world’s great chefs.
I am the founder and director of the Flora Foundation, a non-profit animal rescue organization that has a mission of fostering, treating, and healing abandoned, neglected, and abused dogs in “third-world” countries.
One of the challenges of fostering abandoned dogs in poor countries and regions comes down to cost. So while it’s somewhat “easy” to rescue hordes of doggies, where would you put them all?
One night in Asia, while I was doing my nightly rounds of feeding street doggies, I had an idea: Abandoned doggies are fearful of adults. Abandoned, abused, and orphaned children are also fearful of adults. But doggies love children—and children love doggies. Why not bring the doggies to where the children are?
As fate would have it, the following day I was going to meet Divina for the first time. Divina is a young lady in her 20s whom I had sponsored since she was four years old. And in thinking about that meeting, I had my solution where to foster abandoned doggies: at orphanages.
Take the Philippines, for example. There are over 2,000 registered orphanages with an estimated 100,000 children. What if abandoned doggies could be rescued, treated, behavior-tested, and then fostered at orphanages? And what if the orphanages were provided free food, shelter, medical care, and training materials for the children on how to care for the pets?
In a wonderfully synergistic way, the Flora Foundation was born.
