New projects planned for 2016

* Improve existing camps: For this we need wooden poles (110/3m high), diamond wire mesh (2.5m high), sand and cement, and linseed oil plus wood protection liquids.

* Dog swimming pool for the hot summer months: For this we need big paving slabs to build steps, so even the old dogs can climb out.

* Large trees for shade, ideally large palm trees.

* Large pavers plus sand and cement for the walk-ways, as it can get really muddy during the wet winter months.

Other ongoing expenses and donations

* Dog food: We are always in need of dog food and our biggest wish would be to find a regular monthly donor. We also often have dogs that are extremely neglected when they reach us and need puppy food to improve their weight and condition.

* Airtime: it takes many phone calls to make arrangements to rescue a Collie and just as many to arrange viewings, adoptions and home checks. We are always in need of airtime!

* Any donations of blankets, dog beds, continental pillows, towels, tick & flea shampoo, Karbodust, tick& flea prevention (Bravecto), deworming tablets, toys (especially balls), collars, leashes and brass tags are always needed and welcome

* Our dogs sleep inside the "Dog Cabin" at the shelter at night and we urgently need additional plastic dog crates (the one's used for air travel) to cater for this.

 

Cash donations

It is never easy to ask for money, but we do have expenses that cannot be settled in any other way. Our budget for 2016 is:

     Veterinary expenses = R40,000

     Cleaning staff and groom wages = R42,000

     Petrol = R20,000

     Dog and puppy food = R30,000

For the major donor

We would love to be able to buy the open land alongside us. As Collies need space, we currently use it for thei daily exercise, but are terrified it will be sold!
