Please help our Dogs Shelter to survive!!!!
William's Dog shelter is run by two enthusiasts with only some help from volunteers, who help in their spare time. Robert Majer & Emma Richards are taking care of 150 dogs and carry all the burden of the daily work: feeding, cleaning, running vet visits, administering medication, doing paperwork, dealing with rehoming, fostering and doing repair and construction etc.
Shelter only exists because of public donations. There is no any other source of funding.
Due the current geopolitical situation we lost 2 major sponsors and now we are facing situation with unpaid bills and debts losing hope.
PLEASE HELP US TO SURVIVE !!!!
Saving animal’s life has its cost. We have 150 dogs in our care and even though our shelter does not look like a luxurious five-star dog kennel it costs a lot of money to keep this place safe, dry, warm, and clean.
We need to pay rent, electricity, water, purchase cleaning supplies, gas, construction and repair materials. Sometimes we also need to pay labor when the efforts of our volunteers are not enough. We have three phase electricity supply which allows us to use water pump and a large A/C unit serving a room of about 40 square meters where senior and sick dogs are sleeping at night. A half of the dogs arriving here are malnourished and emaciated. Same as old and sick dogs, starved dogs are extremely sensitive to heat and cold, they need comfortable and safe environment to recover.
To keep this place running we need to pay our monthly bills:
• Electricity bills: 800 EUROS
• Rent: 500 EUROS
• General repair cost: 200-300 EUROS
• Water bills: 50-60 EUROS
• Food for Robert: 200 EUROS
• Labor: 750 EUROS - Worker who helps Robert to clean the place and take care of dogs .
The situation with dog abandonment in Cyprus remains critical and new dogs arrive at the shelter almost every day. Some animal welfare groups estimate that the number of abandoned dogs on the island is anywhere between 200,000 and 250,000.
We are in a constant struggle to obtain funding to continue our operations. We cannot do it alone and we are asking you for help. Please donate now and let us continue saving stray and abused animals.
