Longacres Animal Haven needs financial support - Karen's mission to provide a safe haven for animals.

Main image

Karen Gibbons works tirelessly caring for abused and neglected animals. Some have been rescued from puppy farms where they were breeding machines, some from gang and drug houses, others still who are abondoned at the gate. She takes them in and cares for them. At times she needs her welding gloves on to protect herself until the dogs trust her, but once they do it's the start of a new life for them.

All this work comes at a cost. Huge monthly vet bills, animal feed and transportation costs to name a few.

Karen needs financial help in this area and also to set her property up to care for sick animals and create new runs as well as become SPCA compliant. This will include labour and materials.

Karen has a dream where she would get enough financial support to create a mobile desexing unit which will help with the sheer number of unwanted animals.

Karen does not receive funding for this work and the time has come where she is asking the community for help.

Just another day!  27 February 2020

Posted by: Nicky Klomp

So today has turned to custard to say the least....... had a visit from 2 council officers this morning, it appears I might be getting closed down due to the complaints from my neighbour. But I will keep you updated when I am given more information........this has rocked me and I need to urgently rehome some of the bigger dogs so I will put up a post for help. Popped up the road and came back, opened the door to find my house is flooded........appears a dog has been on the bench and managed to flip the tap on, so I am sloshing around in disbelief watching the vinyl flooring lift and I have NO insurance..........shit of a day, what have I done to deserve this.........your donated towels and bedding are being put to use.......I think Gwen is enjoying the damp.
