Aniplant is an independent membership organization dedicated to the protection of animals. It is not part of the Cuban government, receives no help from the Cuban government, but it is the only animal protection organization permitted to function in Cuba. Aniplant's headquarters is in Havana, but it provides services throughout most parts of the country.
Nora Garcia is the President of Aniplant and very well known in her community among the Cubans, her dedication to help the street dogs of Havana through education , radio shows and appearing on tv.
This is one of my favourite quotes from Nora:
Of me, they say I'm an animal
Of you, they say you're a human
But the big difference is something very simple
You THINK you love me --
And I love you without thinking.
