OUR TEMPORARY SITE HAS OPENED!
AFTER 40 YEARS, OUR SHELTER HAS MOVED
The compulsory purchase of our former site in Keysborough, by the Department of Education, lead us to purchase a new site. The Keysborough site was closed on June 30th 2018 and as the newly acquired land, in Perry Road Dandenong, is not yet habitable we are currently operating from a transitional site.
We are aiming to build a new shelter on the land we have purchased, which will be able to house double the amount of animals we currently save every year. This new shelter is still in its planning stages and due to the required vacation of our Keysborough site, we have since obtained a temporary facility that will allow us to continue to operate until our new home is finished. This temporary facility is located in Bangholme Road, Dandenong South.
Unfortunately, due to zoning restrictions we were unable to relocate our outpatient vet clinic and as such this will be closed until we move to our final home in Perry Road.
At present, we are working closely with council to ensure we meet all requirements for both sites and we appreciate your support during this difficult and ever changing process. We will continue to keep you up to date with all of our relocation news via this page. Questions are always welcome and we aim to be completely transparent during this challenging time. You are welcome to contact our committee via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone: 9798 8415.
WHAT OUR FUTURE LOOKS LIKE
Our final home in Perry Road will be a sanctuary, not just a shelter. A place where animals will have their lives turned around. A place where they are loved, warm, and we can find them a 'forever' family. Our new home will double our capacity and allow us to save twice as many animals as we can now.
Our mission has been to never turn an animal away and this new facility will allow us to continue to provide an open door policy for our community and the animals who need us.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Our biggest hurdle is raising funds. As a not-for-profit, self funded animal shelter we rely on the kindness of our supporters in helping deliver the best for all animals that fall under our care. Donations will help us build the sanctuary we are so desperate to deliver the community and, most importantly, help us save the lives of many animals every year. Our vision is big and achievable but we need your help.
