[:de]Season 2 episode 10 of Volunteer Stories features Alejandra Vasquez from Paw Pals Animal Rescue (PPAR). PPAR is a Shanghai-based shelter founded in 2007 by a group of individual animal rescuers that did not have a safe place to keep their rescued cats while they looked for good people to adopt them.
The creation of the shelter allowed the rescuers to help even more animals in need, and has since led to permanent efforts to keep and expand the space, comfort and tranquillity of the shelter for all rescued cats and kittens.
The main objective of the group is to help homeless cats in the Shanghai area, providing a midway home for the rescued animals until they are placed in responsible, loving homes.
