After the success of last years Mandela Day and considering the massive and exciting changes that have happened at Ark since then, we have decided to present the different projects that require some help from the community. And what better day to make a difference than on Mandela Day 2013!
For those of you who need a catch up…in short, our founder and her husband sold their home in order to purchase 23 acres of land less than 10 minutes from Fourways, JHB. To read more about the move please click here.
Since our big move, we have a variety of different and exciting projects that need to be completed. We have done as much as we can on our own and are now asking the community to get involved and help us achieve our goals!
We are STILL waiting for quotes from the builders/suppliers on how much the project will cost in total. From what we have estimated, it is going to cost between R1,500,000 and R2,000,000 to complete. If anyone is able to assist us in anyway eg: supplies, knowledge, labour etc. please contact us ASAP as we desperately need to get things moving. If anyone is able or would like to contribute financially, our banking details are at the end of this post.
Should a company wish to take on one of the projects, they will be more than welcome to put up a sign with their logo and contact details. 🙂
So enough explaining…onto the exciting stuff…
PROJECT ONE: Staff Quarters
Our incredible animal loving staff members who work tirelessly to ensure our pups are safe, fed and happy need a place to stay. We have a half built building that needs some major TLC. Images below:
PROJECT TWO: Bunny Pen
We often get in rescue bunnies and have no where safe to keep them until they are re-homed, hence why want to finish the building of this gorgeous bunny pen. With separate male and female sections, there will be no worries of bunny over population 🙂
PROJECT THREE: Pig Pen
We have two gorgeous piggies who deserve a pig palace. They were also rescues. The pig pen would possibly need new fences, the wall to be finished and the concrete wall to be taken down.
PROJECT FOUR: Painting of the office
PROJECT FIVE: Shop and temporary puppy kennels
PROJECT SIX: Toilets
PROJECT SEVEN (the big one): Puppy Shelter
If you would like to get involved, please email us with the project of your choice.
We appreciate all the help we get -> team work will make this happen! 🙂 Our banking and contact details are below:
