Pascale is extremely proud to be part AUXAN along with Jennifer.
Pascale has graduated from the University of Aix en Provence with a degree in Art and Archeology and also has a diploma in Management of Culture from the University of Lausanne. She works as an assistant in a Theatre in Romandie and is responsible for the administration, as well as the implementation and management of all the shows, artists and the public.
There are a great number of associations today which do very good work. So why did Pascale choose AUXAN? Simply because of Jennifer’s relentless passion and vocation, which have no limits when it comes to looking after our four-legged friends. We ask you to join us and help us to change things -today.
Jennifer is a resident of Switzerland and works as a full-time manager in the medical sector. Her passion: help animals. Before creating her association, Auxan, Jennifer had been a volunteer for 15 years in the animal welfare sector. A philanthropist by nature, she devotes her free time to both her charitable association Auxan as well as her business “Les Delices de Jenny Sarl”.
Jennifer has created a range of gluten free products “Les Granolas de Jenny” as well as her association “Auxan Animalibus”. The two structures are linked, the profits from the first are redistributed to the second. There is no question of only depending on donations to the association, she also invests her time in generating revenues in parallel to help subsidise the charity.
In an increasingly difficult economic and financial context, more and more associations involved in the protection of animals are encountering financial problems, thereby preventing them from carrying out their activities successfully and accomplishing their mission.
Their daily routine is affected by the increase of animal suffering, which they are finding it harder and harder to cope. Expensive veterinary fees, the cost of food and the renovation of shelters all contribute to the difficulty in “making ends meet”.
The smaller structures in the domain of animal protection, in particular, often have insufficient financial, human and material means to devote to the collection of funds and/or donations. They are usually submerged by their day-to-day on-site activities, which are extremely time-consuming.
It is also unfortunate that many benefactors and donors to these associations are not always very well informed about how their money is spent… We have all at some time or another had doubts or suspicions about the use of our donations, especially with the growing number of embezzlement scandals.
We know that a lot of people who are concerned about the fate of animals would like to support associations that are in difficulty, knowing that the latter often operate behind the scenes and yet achieve exceptional work. These associations are often not known by the general public because of the lack of time or means for promoting their activities (no website or Facebook page, for example). Generally speaking, such organisations survive because they are supported by their entourage, by word of mouth, and by volunteers who are actively involved in animal protection and who live nearby. As a result, we thought it essential and urgent to create an organisation to help them out.
AUXAN is a small but very active charity, which believes in full disclosure of money raised and medical equipment donated and how it is being spent and redistributed globally.
Our accounts are certified each year by an external independant auditor, based in Vevey, Switzerland.
Each year, we try and exceed our expectations by creating new collaborations in order to improve the welfare of animals internationally.
