Actress Roselyn Sanchez creates foundation to aid children, animals

San Juan, Jul 29 (EFE).- Puerto Rican actress Roselyn Sanchez has created a foundation, RS Events for Life, for the purpose of collecting funds to help children and animals, her publicist said Monday.

To that end, the actress is organizing the Amazing Paw Paw Race Puerto Rico, to be held Aug. 10, on this occasion as a benefit for the PetSOS Foundation.

"Guests will face the challenge of overcoming countless obstacles and of working their way through mazes with the clues provided," Sanchez, who is currently acting in the TV series "Devious Maids" produced by Eva Longoria, said in a communique.

Amazing Paw Paw Race Puerto Rico will be held in six municipalities on the island with the participation of about 100 people including clients, artists, special guests and the international press.

The event is solely for charity and the money collected will be donated to PetSOS to improved the installations of an animal shelter and organize the second massive spay and neuter campaign on the island to sterilize hundreds of dogs and cats belonging to needy families.
