About this group:
OWAP-AR (One World Actors Productions Animal Rescue), a collective of people committed to furthering animal welfare across the globe, is the only animal welfare group in all of Yemen. A war torn country experiencing the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, where over 80% of the population currently relies on some kind of humanitarian aid or protection to survive, tens of thousands of civilians have been killed since the war began, and millions have been displaced. OWAP-AR is raising funds to permanently establish the only animal shelter in the country so that it can offer permanent refuge, and increase the care it provides to strays (who are routinely poisoned by municipalities), abused working animals, zoo animals dying of starvation and facing lack of enrichment and unsafe living conditions, and every creature in between. The shelter, known as the Animal Rescue Shelter, located in Yemen's capital, Sana'a is part of OWAP-AR's pioneering Stray Animals Rescue & Shelter Mission which includes Yemen's very first rabies vaccination campaign. OWAP-AR is an SPCAI approved group doing all this in a country with no animal protection laws, no existing vaccination or sterilization programs, no public animal shelters. We hope our support will amplify the impact they are making to improve the situation for the animals in Yemen, and we thank you for your years of support for groups like OWAP-AR, who are doing work that will improve and establish standards for animal welfare.

About this donation:
Since 2016, each month Good Rebel selects a different non-profit group that advances animal welfare, to which we make a donation. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, our monthly donation consisted of a share of the proceeds from our house-made vegan sandwiches. One of the impacts on our business of the pandemic and our attempts to flatten the curve is our scaling back of our operations. Our sandwich production has been suspended as we focus our efforts on our core function of grocery retail. However, we are still committed to using our platform and resources to supporting the non-profit groups that are working to make the world a better place.
Starting August 2020, groups will be featured for a 3 month period, in order to maximize the impact of the funds raised for the group.
To support this period's beneficiary, simply add the $5 donation to your cart, with the quantity you would like- the minimum amount is of course $5, and you can add as many multiples of $5 as you would like.
At the end of the period, Good Rebel will match the amount raised, dollar for dollar, and electronically remit the funds raised to the beneficiary.
Thank you for generously supporting our efforts to support these groups doing such good in the world. Good Rebel's mission is to make the world a kinder place for all animals, and we are proud to share our platform and resources with likeminded organizations, so we can further the impact we are all making.
