We have been struggling to move our animal shelter (that is home to 60+ rescue dogs) to the new location for sometime, until Sea Harvest workers volunteered to help us to complete the move. We have to move by the end of October as the owner of the current land we have the shelter situated on has sold the land.
We have been told that these amazing workers from Sea Harvest are not going to stop until they have finished building the new shelter!
Please check out this video of them working hard this week on the shelter:
Finding these amazing volunteers is such a stroke of luck you cannot believe as this many volunteers is so hard to come by! The only thing stopping us building our new animal shelter is we are running out of the materials needed to make it safe and secure for our rescue dogs in our care. (We also offer a unique style of animal shelter - all dogs are free to run together in big camps! So no single occupant tiny kennels, and this is why we believe our dogs are so happy!)
We have now had to turn to ask the global public to help us raise funds to for the following building materials so we can complete our animal shelter/sanctuary:
* 470 m of wire fencing
* 50 x 3m poles
* fencing wire
Extras we are also here raising money for:
* Wendy house cladding (we use these as storage and one will be the main house where the founder will live on site with the rescue dogs).
* cement and stone (to put the fence poles up)
Please help us by donating what you can, so that we can buy the fencing materials we urgently need to be able to build our new shelter.
Animal Lighthouse shelter is the only shelter in Vredenburg, and we work tirelessly week after week to help educate owners who live in disadvantaged communities to look after their companion animals better, and also removes animals that owners either do not want or have been abused. We offer them a sanctuary when they are taken in, and rehabilitate them. Once rehabilitated we then will find them a suitable loving forever home or if they abuse was too severe, they will live out their lives in peace at the shelter.
Our shelter is 100% ran on public donations, and which is why we need your donation today, no matter how small you think it is - it really will help us achieve our goal to buy the fencing and remaining building materials we need to make a secure and safe animal shelter.
