Rescue Room Extension

$781 of $5,000 goal
Given by 23 generous donors in around 7 months

We urgently need to add an extra room to our rescue centre "The Paw Pad".


Our rescue centre, "The Paw Pad" is an 80sqm communal shelter that houses our street cat rescues when they first come into our care. Here they are brought back to health, and socialised with people and prepared for moving into foster homes.

We are fundraising to purchase a 4m x 2.5m insulated wooden enclosure as an extra rescue room, we will also be adding an enclosed deck to this for fresh air and sunbathing. We will happily put a sponsorship plaque onto the building, as well as our Facebook and website, for any large donations towards our rescue centre extensions. Every dollar makes a huge difference to what we can do for our rescues, and we appreciate any and all support we get.

Photos are of the type of building we are looking at building, which will include more windows, a ranchslider, and an enclosed deck to allow for fresh air and sun bathing.

In addition to this room, we are also fundraising for an isolation ward to house our ringworm rescues - many other rescue organisations will not work with cats and kittens with ringworm, putting another demand on us for our services.
