Getting ready for the next step. 27 February 2020
We have had a battle on our hands with Auckland Council. A 64-page proposal was 119 pages at the last count. But we believe we may have won the battle, just waiting for the official paperwork.
Now it’s time to do some serious fund raising. We are looking at approx. $9000 for getting the land ready. Approx. $50000 for the building/s. We need fencing, shelters for the other animals. The first big bill will be the council bill.
Even though we are not official open we have now fostered over 30 pups. Have taken on 2 lambs one unfortunately has had to have a leg amputated. 2 old sheep have come to retire. It’s a challenge with what we have, and we are having to say no to some animals that need help until we can have safe and secure places for them.
We don’t like asking for help, but we cannot do it by ourselves. We are caring and financially looking after nearly 30 animals at the moment. This number will increase once we are up and running.
Thank you for all your support, we really appreciate your help.
