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.

Update re flooded house  1 March 2020

Posted by: Nicky Klomp

Good Morning, just an update on progress re flooded house. I was /am lucky, as I bought commercial grade vinyl especially for the dogs when I did the floors, it has survived better than expected. I have swelling in kitchen cabinetry but hey it's fine. So of course I am almost out of water again but again I am just fine.

Thanks to Rochelle yesterday for mopping floors yesterday and for Kath tidying outside , the place felt better. People came and played with puppies and dogs and 3 dogs have meet their new forever owners. So lucky old Dougie and Chloe and Baxter will be heading off this coming week.

Still plenty of dogs and pups needing homes.

Huge thank you for all your kind thoughts, I am blocking the negative side of my property.

Another lovely neighbour phoned to ask if I was alright as she doesnt mind the dogs at all but heard aggressive barking.....that made me feel good that the other lovely neighbours I have ,really care.

I will post photos of dogs available asap in between caring for them all.

I will also tell you more about the council in coming days.....THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING ME AND THE DOGS , HAVE A FABULOUS SUNDAY
