I feel a bit bad creating this and I don't really expect much to come of it but I figured it's worth trying.
My significant other is in a perfect position to get work in Dublin, Ireland. With the state of politics in South Africa we don't think it would be wise to build our lives here.
We are planning to emigrate to Ireland which is very costly but with 5 animals it feels nearly impossible. 2 cats and 3 medium breed dogs are incredibly expensive to transport overseas. The flights and vet care cost more than all of our other moving expenses combined.
I will under no circumstances leave my animals behind, if I can't afford to take them with me then it's a simple matter of I'm not going. These animals are my family and I want to take them to a country where I know they'll be safe.
Just a few weeks ago I had to rush one of our dogs to the vet because he was very ill and the vet suspected he was poisoned. Dogs are poisoned, cats go missing, owners are killed and animals left with no one to love or take care of them.
If you have money to spare I would appreciate any help I can get but it is completely understandable if you would rather donate to someone who truly needs it.
