- Funded on Monday, 13th August 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
It has now come to the stage that we have got to move out of the village before we are closed down, I do not want that to happen anymore than the 1000's of followers that we have. I have found a location that we would like to buy, but this is at this time not available although will be in the near future. However for now we have started to rent this building, it is not much, but it has a concrete floor, sound walls and roof, and the best thing we have no neighbours.
We have permission to rent this for initially 2 years, I am hoping that in that time we will have raised the money and secured a much better property elsewhere, however for now we need to make this place, secure and healthy, so we need fencing, and materials to set up inside secure kennel areas. I have already out of my own money paid for the electric to be installed and the ground to be levelled. We have found somebody that can make us the fencing at a really reasonable rate, also this fencing is powder coated and when we come to move we can take it with us, therefore we will have not wasted the money. I also want to purchase purpose built kennel areas that are flat packed, and again we will be able to take with us to our future permanent place. If I cannot buy the place that we want for the future, this place will be purchased.
The building is 4 rooms, 2 small rooms which will be store rooms. A large room which is 10 meters x 5 meters, I want to partition this off to make a dedicated puppy area. Then a very large room of 20 meters x 10 meters this will be portioned off to make 10 kennel areas each capable of holding up to 10 dogs at night time. We then are fencing the outside are to make a secure run which will be portioned off allowing dogs to run during the day, the are that we are fencing is another 25 meters by 25 meters with some additional off areas.
There is a security firm that patrols at night which we have to contribute £5 a month to, but we also have to put outside flood lighting in to assist in this security.
Please help us raise this funding to keep Santerpaws alive.
