The Cantabrian government decided to bring in a law in 2018 obliging rescuers of dogs to own their own licensed kennels. Rescate Perrines has always rented space in a kennel and faced with the prospect of having to stop helping dogs they embarked on an ambitious project of building their own shelter.
They found a prefabricated shelter which can be dismantled and reconstructed at the new site and they negotiated hard to get builders to give them competitive quotes, the digger who prepared the land for example only charged his fuel costs.
The overall budget was 30,000 Euros and Tracy Sheldon and Jacqui Hadley worked hard to fundraise and many of our Facebook supporters donated very generously to help this to happen. They have got as far as having the concrete base but sadly they’ve ground to a halt now.
The quote for the concrete base was 3000 Euros but the firm which quoted refused actually to complete the work and the next lowest quote they could get was 3 times as much. The sewage costs have also come in higher than quoted.
The total shortfall is 8000 Euros and without it, they can’t carry on to finish the shelter, what’s more, this extra debt means that they’ve had to cut down the number of dogs they can help at any one time and much of their efforts are having to be diverted into fundraising.
Donate and make a difference
Everybody who donates 100 Euros or more will have a plaque with their name on one of the kennels. There will be a total of 12 kennels in the new shelter, one used to store supplies and we would like to sponsor up to 10 of them at 800 Euros per kennel. We would need 80 people to pledge 100 Euros to get the shelter completed and allow RP to rescue dogs as before.
