We are not a Sanctuary who constantly asks for help, BUT we really do need your help, especially with the with the ‘Forgotten Ones’ – dogs who will be with us for life, passed mostly to us by other rescues because they can’t help them, and in most cases then promptly forgotten.We are suffering form higher levels of flooding then we have seen in a long time. we have been faced with floods not just turning the lane into a river and fields into lakes, essentially making us an island, with a wrap around swimming pool!https//:www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/rescue-animals-whose-home-became-15283227
Inaccessible by motor vehicles, we are faced flooding of all the outside areas adjacent to the buildings, and actually inside the barn – which have only flooded once before. Luckily items like washing machines had been put up on blocks. We feel the only solution is to raise these areas so we are safe from future flooding. We also desperately need to continue to renew areas of fencing which have rotten after 20 years of sitting in flood water. This is really going to cost a lot of money. We are trying to get companies to donate materials, or at least heavily discount them, without much lick so far. But we will also need to pay experienced trades people to make sure the work is done properly. All this is on top of the ongoing enormous vets bills, we have on top of those for the routine things such as food, such parasite control and neutering.
We don’t re-home hundreds of dogs like many rescues, that is because we take the harder to home dogs, the old, sick, neglected, abusedand troubled dogs. Those that are simply less attractive to adopters, many referred on to us by other organisations as problematic in one way or another. So, we don’t have a fast re-homing rate and steady cash flow coming in. In fact, we rarely cover costs. Many of our long stay and resident dogs, collectively known as the Forgotten ones, are now elderly and reaching the stage where they need regular veterinary attention.
This is where you all come in. Please if you can donate to our veterinary fund, they and we will be eternally grateful. If you could all donate just a little, you will collectively be doing so much.
Please donate whatever you can and help us to help The forgotten ones.
