We are about to lose our farm, please help save our home. In the past two and a half years, we have made the farm our home. This is a home to 250 animals, who have been rescued from severe conditions. We have given them a chance by treating them, rehabilitating them and hopefully one day finding their happily ever after. Our animals live here, our adoption facility is here, our community shop that raises funds is here, our sterilisation clinic is here and our hearts are here.
Without this farm, we have nothing and nowhere to go. Our 250 animals will once again be homeless. The impoverished surrounding community can no longer come to us and ask us for help with their animals.
We take care of thousands of animals, our own, and the surrounding communities’. Without our home, we can no longer do this.
In the past months, we have had serious security issues at the farm. We have, therefore, come up with the concept of building a wall around the farm. With very limited resources and finances, we can’t possibly do this on our own.
Along with this issue, the farm’s lease expires at the end of December 2018. Sadly, the landlord has put the farm up for sale and received an offer to purchase for R4.8m. This has placed us on terms that not only put the shelter and the work that we do in jeopardy but also the lives of the 250 animals in our care. Having first option to purchase the property, we have until the end of December 2018 to raise the R4.8m. If we fail to purchase the farm, we need to vacate the property with all the animals. We have nowhere to go.
With many sleepless nights, and a lot of thinking, we have decided to start the BUY A BRICK campaign.
We need to sell one brick to 100 000 people in order to raise enough funds to buy our farm and collect enough bricks to build the wall around our farm.
Here is how you as an individual, school or business can get involved and help save our home:
Simply buy a brick for R50. You will have the option to have your brick personalised with your name engraved on it. You also have the option to dedicate your brick to a late/special family member or your very own pet. There is no limit to the amount of bricks that you would like to purchase.
Help us save our shelter. Help us save our farm.
