Bunnings Warehouse Sausage Sizzle

Our Next Sausage Sizzle at Bunnings Warehouse at South Grafton will be on April 7th, 2017

We are at Bunnings Warehouse South Grafton doing a sausage sizzle to raise funds for the animals at HappyPaws Haven on Friday April 7th, 2017. Please come down, buy a sausage, a drink and a 100 Club ticket. All will be on sale! Come and join us between 0830 - 1530, we are really looking forward to seeing you!


Current Projects

We have the following major projects that we need significant funds for to complete:

  1. The building and installing of the New Kitten House
  2. The building of an outside enclosure for our cats
  3. The modification of our cattery 
  4. The building of dog enrichment yards
  5. The building of separate volunteer facility
  6. The installation of composting toilets for both the current property and the new one
  7. The installation of solar power on the new property

We need donations/funds urgently to replace our current septic systems with compositing toilets as it is critical to our ability to operate.
We are planning to install composting toilet systems and a grey water absorbtion system instead of the septic 


Volunteers Needed!

Volunteers Needed!

We still desparately need volunteers to help as a number of my volunteers are getting jobs or going on holidays. If there is anyone out there who can give half a day on any day of the week to come clean and care for the cats or the dogs, bring a friend with them it would be wonderful.

We really need at least 4 people every day not including me as a minium but 5 or more would be wonderful so that I can be freed up to do the adoptions, administration and managerial work required.

We always need good quality dry food donations for the dogs and cats in care, cat scratching gyms and toys for the all dogs and cats. It has been really wonderful how kind and generous the community has been to us and the animals thank you all so very much..


Don't forget to buy a ticket at our raffle table when ever you see us outside South Grafton Newsagency,  Grafton Shopping World, Coles South Grafton and Bunnings Warehouse. 

You might also be interested in becoming a member of Happy Paws Haven and help us with fund raising, selling raffle tickets, dog training or caring for the animals at the shelter!.

Sponsor a Dog Bed

Sponsor a Dog Bed!

Our Dogs need new beds. We have found a bed that can survive the riggours of most dogs and it has lasted for at least 12 years now and seems to have many more to go. 

Each of the Tampoline Dog Beds cost approximately $185.00 and we need 10 beds, so grab a group of people ( friends and/or work collegues) pass around the hat or have a sausage sizzle and sponsor a bed. We will write you Groups name on the bed and email a photo of your bed with your name or names on it!

See how many beds  your team can sponsor!
