2019 is going to be a year full of building work!
With the increase in animals and birds brought to us the need for more building work to be done at the sanctuary is urgent.
Amongst the projects are
*Storage building for feed
*A new drive and parking lot
The new drive will cost us in the region of £8,000 to build but it is urgent that it is done. It will provide a safer environment for volunteers, staff and visitors. It will also provide a dry and well-lit area for deliveries of feed and bedding and of course animals and birds.
Could you help us? PayPal.me/Hallswood and make a note that it’s for the new drive.
Urgent neutering of 16 cats
We need help to raise fund to neuter, vaccinate and de-flea 16 feral cats. Can you help at all?
Feral cats are always hard to find homes for. Lots of groups will trap neuter and return, but what happens when the feeder/ landowner has cancer and is dying?
Well, in this case, a lovely man has fed them for over ten years. When he got diagnosed with cancer one of his concerns was to ensure that the 16 cats would be safe so he contacted us. He was given 3months to live but sadly passed away after only 7 weeks. Left now are 16 cats aged 6 months – 12 years old.
These cats will join our cats at the sanctuary but before that is possible they will have to be neutered and vaccinated and this is where we urgently need your help! It will cost us around £100 per cat to neuter, vaccinate, de-flea and worm.
We know that thanks to Lyz and the staff at the sanctuary this lovely man was given peace of mind at this terrible point of his life, knowing that his cats would be safe.
We are now in the process of trying to raise money for storage at the sanctuary. More storage would mean that we can buy even more stuff in bulk and that is something that would save us money in the long run.
We estimate that we need £2500 for this project and we know that it might sound a lot but it could save us many thousands in the long run.
To donate towards this project please send a donation through PayPal and mark it as “Storage”
We have had amazing news from Paula and the money for Hallswoods new Hogspital has been raised!
Well done to Paula, all the volunteers and of course the people donating money towards it. You guys are amazing!
“Honkys new home”
£300 for a new enclosure for an emergency rescue of a pig.
£273 raised in 48 hours. Thank you!
New enclosure for the rabbits!
If you recall the very brave Hannah Yallop did a sponsored sky dive back in April.
The money has now all been collected and we can finally reveal just how much she made.
Her goal was to raise £250 to help us rebuild the rabbit area at the Sanctuary but the end result was even better than that.
Hannah Raised an amazing £500! How awesome is that? 😀
Well done Hannah. You are a brave young lady with a big heart.
Lyz and the rabbits thank you 😊
