We were notified by our landlord that he wants to sell or create a long-term lease. We’ll only have 90 days’ notice when he finds a new tenant. We’re trying to look at the glass as half-full, because a new space could be excellent for our adoptable animals.
Thank you to everyone who has donated to our Needs-a-New-Home campaign online, in person and at local events throughout the year. We want to provide you with an update on the fundraising efforts and what’s next.
We are still working hard to raise money for the new home, but in the meantime, we are going to do some improvements at the current location. These improvements will improve the space and provide for larger, open areas for the animals. We are writing grants for funding, but still need to raise the funds for the fencing projects. If you know of anyone, a group or company, that could help in funding or installation, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
. We plan to:
- Expand the cat room enclosure
- Enhance and secure the small animal fenced area on the side of the building
- Build a large, fenced area as a play area, meet and greet and training area in the grass area beside the shed. We are talking with fence companies to see if we can get donations of fencing and supplies.
We are still under-served by our current facility, at risk of being homeless when it sells… and… still need a new place. We are not giving up. This is no small undertaking! We created a GoFundMe
page to dedicate donations specifically to this cause. Please contribute to this one-of-a-kind fundraiser! No donation is too small – with enough $5 donations, we WILL achieve this goal!
As fate would have it, a “dog” property (former world-renowned German Shepherd breeder), 1 mile down the road, has been for sale over a year. We are willing to fix it up and make it shine again, and we are calling for contributions to afford the purchase! Our dedicated volunteers and adoptable animals say THANK YOU!!
If you would like to go further and become an advocate for this cause, we’d love your help! Please submit a volunteer application
and we’ll contact you with more details about promoting the cause at events, schools, birthday parties, etc.
