One of Happy Paws Haven’s 2016 goals is to reduce our numbers by half so we have closed our doors. We will not rescue or accept any more dogs or cats until we have acheived this goal.

Happy Paws Haven is downsizing so we need help with finding homes for our beautiful dogs and cats as we want to continue to raise money to refurbish our facilities and the create a first class rescue rehabilitation and rehoming centre for cats and dogs and we can't achieve this without reducing our numbers.

We have already reduced our intake significantly but now we are not taking any more animals in at all until we have cut our numbers by at least half. This will give us the opportunity to rebuild a centre of excellence.

Please spread the word so we can achieve our goals.

Another of Happy Paws Haven’s 2016 goals is to make sure we upgrade our cat and dog housing before winter

We invite you to help us achieve this goal!

For our Cats we need to;

  • Urgently  install shutters on all the Cat and kitten mesh windows so we can shut out the cold at night during winter. We have already installed blinds on the cattery windows to give them protection from the weather.
  • The kitten balconies need replacing due to the timber used showing its age.
  • The kitten House is first on the list for refurbishment as the blue covering on their benches needs replacing with new Lino. We also need to build and install approximately twelve snuggle boxes. We need to pressure clean the room and reseal the floors.
  • The refurbishment of the main cat house includes the removal of all the old bench and ramp coverings, replacing with them Lino. Each bench has two levels. Again we need to build and install approximately twenty snuggle boxes for each cattery. We will pressure clean and reseal the floors.
  • We would also like to buy two large cat tree/condos for each cattery area. The kittens have already received a nice new condo/tree. 
We are looking for people who would like to sponsor a task and in return we would happily put your name on the item or ask you to name it for us.
For example:

Each shutter for the cattery cost approximately $500 to buy/build and install so you could sponsor a shutter
The sealant is approximately $200 for 10l tin and we need three for the cats
The snuggle boxes should cost about $30 each and we need 72 for all the kittens and cats to have one each
Each bench level should cost approximately $100 and we have 8 bench level and two ramps
Each condo/tree cost about $300 and we would like to get two for each for the two catteries


 

For our Dogs we need to:
On our new property, we have two double stables, a triple stable and two single stable areas to be totally renovated so that the dogs have comfortable, hygienic, insulated and ventilated accommodation in time for winter.
  • The floors for the triple stables have been replaced and need sealing. The walls need lining and insulating, the roof needs insulating and 6 whirly birds installed. The front walls need to be built, lined and insulated with doors installed.
  • One of the two double stables has had its floors replaced and sealed. Two of the walls are lined and insulated. One wall needs lining and insulating. The front wall needs to be built, lined, insulated with a door installed. The roof needs insulation and 4 whirly birds installed.
  • The second double stable has also had its floors replaced but they still need sealing. The three of the four walls have been rebuilt. They still need to be lined and insulated. The front or entry wall needs to be built, lined, insulated and a door installed. The roof needs insulation and 2 whirly birds installed.
  • The three walls of the single stable area will need to be replaced, lined and insulated The roof needs insulation and a whirly bird installed. The new floor is formed up but not poured thus not sealed.
  • The other single shed/stable area is the existing greyhound shed, its floors need a new skin and to be sealed, one wall needs replacing, all walls need to be lined and insulated, including the roof. We need to install a whirly bird in the roof.
  • We also need to purchase 17 new trampoline dog beds for these new dog enclosures, the R3 dog bed costs approximately $184 each. The dog beds we buy are built to last, we have two that are at least 14 years old.
  • Each dog needs a bed and a stainless steel food bowl. We need 15 new dog bowls at $15 each
  • A stainless steel bucket is needed for every two dogs for water and we need 5 new water buckets at $50 each.
