25TH FEBRUARY - PERRY ROAD UPDATE

Perry Road - Civil Works

The New Year has brought with it positive progress at our future site. The civil works at Perry Rd continued on schedule for most of January and February and those driving by would be impressed by the amount of heavy machinery constantly moving the earth around. They, seemingly independently, yet obviously coordinated, have finally finished and moved on.

BUILD IT AND THEY WILL COME: OUR JOURNEY FORWARD

Noah was engaged both day and night in feeding and caring for the animals, and did not sleep for the entire year aboard the ark. 

Now, we aren’t saying that we’re akin to Noah, but we are setting ourselves an ark like task of building a new animal welfare facility on land purchased on Perry Road, Keysborough that will speak to all walks of life. Its major focus will be on the animals that need our care.

17 SEPTEMBER - ONWARDS AND UPWARDS!

OUR TEMPORARY HOME NEARS COMPLETION

We have endured some hectic and exciting times over the past few months preparing our temporary home, 132 Bangholme Road, to be fit for animal and human habitation. Despite the former factory being the best fit as our temporary shelter it has presented some complexities. Currently, we are working on getting the drainage, ventilation, and temperature control up to Animal Shelter Code of Practice Standards, whilst also meeting various Building Regulations and Council Permit conditions. These requirements are close to being completed and we expect to be fully operational and housing animals in need of care in the near future.

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 DID IT, OUR HOMELEIGH ROAD SHELTER IS EMPTY

We are so thrilled to announce that all of our animals are now either in homes, foster or rescue placements and our shelter is empty and ready to finalise our move. We can not express enough, our gratitude to all those that helped us and for the tireless efforts of our staff and volunteers to make this happen. So many animals are now in loving families, or in foster or rescue awaiting a loving family to call their own.
