Saving Animals During A Pandemic
This pandemic has left us stranded, isolated, restricted, and far away from our floating home (and family support). Our moods change with the tides. Flowing in and out of a funk, feeling stuck with our hands tied and the future uncertain.
We’ve been grounded for almost three months now and there is absolutely no word on when we can go home.
But, lucky us, we found a little pipsqueak in need to distract us from our woes (See Pip’s story here https://www.gonewiththewynns.com/saving-life-isolation). Because we’re not alone, the whole world is suffering in various ways.
Here in Fiji, the coronavirus has affected the animals as much as humans. Animal shelters have closed their doors due to lockdowns, lack of funding, and canceled fundraising events. Which puts thousands of animals in need with nowhere to go.
So, with the discovery of our feline friend Pip and the lovely people at Animals Fiji we decided to rally our crew. Because while we all may be a little stuck right now, it doesn’t mean we can’t be helpful.
Pip volunteered to be the mascot and together we (you included) managed to do something amazing.
Sorry about all those tears at the end, we’re a tad emotional these days and you guys knocked it out of the park. We were sad, happy, and blown away all at the same time. Just incredible! I couldn’t be prouder of our community and how you showed up to help. Thank you so much for making a difference. Not only did you save a lot of animals, but you also helped keep an important, remote organization operating and employing people through a pandemic!
Thank you for being a part of our community.
Thank you for being a part of our journey.
Thank you for lifting our spirits, filling our hearts, and for the ongoing support.
We love you to the moon and back,
Nikki, Jason (and Pip too)

Animals Fiji Fundraiser Recap
Animals Fiji is a non-profit welfare agency for animals. Their goal is to reduce the epidemic of stray and diseased roaming dog and cat populations that plague villages, towns, and rural areas, through spay/neuter programs.
All while ensuring that basic veterinary services, and animal care education, are available to as many Fijians as possible.
Our goal was to raise $1,500 for Animals Fiji to sponsor 10 animals. Together we raised over $28,000 and it’s still climbing!
