Last Year with your help we made a difference to nearly 150 cats and dogs by finding them loving forever homes.



Today is #GivingTuesday, the start of the holiday giving season! and we we need your help. We are really struggling at the moment with animals being abandoned and high vet bills.
 
#GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season. Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together. Everyone has something to give. You can give time or expertise, monetary donations large or small, simple acts of kindness, food or clothing for the animals in our care. All donations given, no matter how large or small, are only used to help our animals by providing food, enrichment activities and paying our vet costs. Please help by giving right now!




Thank you for helping us rescue approximately 115 dogs and cats so far this year, 2018.
With your help we have desexed them all, vet checked them all, vaccinated them all, they are regularly treated for parasites, and protected against heartworm bearing mosquitoes. We really appreciate the help given to us by everyone. You have allowed us to make sure that every animal in our care gets to visit the vet at least once each year. All have also been vet checked regularly by the vet at Happy Paws Haven, our vets come regularly throughout the year. All our fur babies are fed with very good quality grain-free holistic kibble to ensure they receive the best nutrients they need. We are very fussy about the food we give them. We often do not know what they have had before they came here, so we give them the best nutrition we can afford. This hopefully gives them the best foundation and assists with their rehabilitation so they  ready for their new homes. With your help they are well socialised and loved while at Happy Paws Haven so they are no longer afraid of people or other animals being more affectionate as they gain confidence.

You and your charitable donation will help us continue the critical hands-on work we do for the animals that come through our doors.
Please continue to help us by making a generous contribution today and together we will further our no-kill work during this holiday season and well into the future.



We have already reduced our intake significantly! We are down approximately 60 cats and 50 dogs.
We have no plans to increase numbers at all.
 This gives us the opportunity to create a centre of excellence.

Happy Paws Haven desparately needs your HELP Please


Every day thousands of cats & dogs in Australia are abandoned or surrendered. Those who come into our care are given safe haven until they find a new home no matter how long that takes.  We currently have a very special girl who has just had a very special operation so that she can walk without pain and play again.  



Miss Sharman has had her operation and her achilles tendon has been fixed. The pin has now come out after the mandatory 6 weeks, Only a few days ago the cast came off. She is still in Sydney with her wonderful foster carers having the special remedial therapy she needs before coming home. We have raised $5000 which was paid to Small Animal Specialist Hospital in sydney but we still owe them a little more.

Please help Sharman so we can pay her vet bill for the repair her Achilles so thay she can play again

a Happy Paws Haven Super Hero!


But we have a problem we need your help to continue.
We get so many requests for help but we just cannot help everyone!
We have limited resources so have to manage our intake with our capacity to care!


Please donate so we can continue to help special cases like Sharman
We have another that we are trying to help but do not have the money to do so.


Her name is Mia and she is only just turned 18 months old we are not exactly sure what the problem is as she is incontinent. Until we have the money for her to have a CT scan and an MRI we will not know why. In the mean time she has been on antibiotics and that helped a little. She has been on some special drugs that helped her control and concentrate her urine but she is still leaking, no where near the volume of before but still stops her from participating in a the family activities any member of the family should.

She has a loving home to go to, we just need to get her better so she can enjoy her new life. The lady wants to adopt her but is on a pension so can't afford to give her the medical treatment she requires. Please help us do so by donating to her vet expense. To have the tests done it will cost approximately $2500.  Please either use PayPal by using happypawshaven@bigpond.com or donate directly to BSB 633000 Account 130786031 Account name is Happy Paws Haven Inc.

What have we done so far this year already!

Since the beginning of 2018 we have found homes for 139 cats and dogs. Our adoption rate has increased year on year which is great. We are slowly getting back to the numbers we were rehoming back in 2015. 

Some of the adoptions that have taken place have included long time residents like Koko who had been here for nearly 3 years have now been adopted into wonderful loving home.
 
Jennifer saw her on line and fell in love with her smile. She rang to make sure she was still here and we had a long chat. She came down for a meet and greet. Jennifer said that Koko was better in the flesh and wanted to adopt her straight away!

From the top is Suraya our charcoal girl with green eyes, then Miss Coralee, on the bottom is Miss Helena our lovely torti girl and the token dog Miss Lalita otherwise called Lily.
All these beautiful animals have been here about four years just waiting for a loving home, let us hope there is someone out there for each and everyone. We have no idea why these ladies are still looking for a loving home.


We are still struggling financially to meet our costs especially our vet bills.  We still owe Oct $7,926.40  Sept $11,184.35 August $9,639.55  July and some of June $13,044.05


Just year to date alone
, we have already de-sexed over 110 cats and dogs, given approximately 40 dentals and over 320 C5 or F4 vaccinations to dogs and cats and over 100 other procedures have been proformed not including Heart worm, FIV or Parvo testing..

It costs us approximately $9.38/animal/day which covers everything including maintenance of the animal facilities. We are continuing to find ways to reduce costs so that we cover our capacity to care. 
On average we spend $1000/week on food, approximately $1200 - $2200 per month on parasite control depending whether it’s a worming month or not.
E
very new  animal is micro-chipped as they arrive, wormed, treated for heart worm, mites and de-flead. Then off to the vet for a thorough vet check, heart worm test, immunisation, desexing and anything else they may require..

Please help by joining us to help these animals in need

 We urgently need to meet a shortfall in donations so that we can continue to care for every animal that turns to us for help. 

Summer and the holiday season is here and puppy and kitten season has already started, we already have had 5 litters in our care, most have been adopted or are up for adoption with everything done. We still have one litter about to have their first vaccinations and the latest litter is too young to be vaccinated. This is always the businest time of the year at Happy Paws Haven, but this year’s challenges have been unprecedented and have placed a huge strain on our sanctuary's resources. 

Please donate urgently so that all animals have a second chance at happiness this holiday season.

With your help, no challenge is insurmountable. Happy Paws Haven is so fortunate to have people like you by our side. Your generosity will help sponsor the care of a special animal in our sanctuary like Mia  or Sharman. It will keep them safe while they wait to be adopted by their future forever family.
 

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Please make an urgent gift now! 

We are only taking in animals in crisis now, due to our shortage of funds. We balance our intake with our rehoming rate and our capacity to care based on our funding and cash flow.
