Buy-A-Brick and Help Build a Future For SA’s Rescued Animals

::: Ark Animal Centre Buy-A-Brick Campaign :::

We need to sell 40,000 bricks in order to raise enough money to build our new shelter!

We understand to move forward after our big move to the new property, we are going to need the support of the community.

They will form the foundation of Ark and the names of every individual or company who supports Ark will be honoured on Ark’s Archangel Wall.

The wall will be the focal point of the shelter, where in years to come Ark’s visitors will be able to appreciate those who contributed in making a difference.

There are three different Buy-A-Brick options:

  • 1 Brick = R50 and your name on our wall
  • 50 Bricks = R2,500 and your logo on our wall
  • 500 Bricks = R25,000 and your banner on our wall

To donate please use the banking details below and make your reference the name you want printed on our wall.

More about our vision: (if you have time to read further) 🙂

From our various fund raising events like our Bikini Car Wash, Barnyard show, quiz evenings and others we managed to save up enough to build an older puppy shelter. For pups that are 3 months and older. They will be completed by the end of this week, our builders are just busy laying the final concrete slabs.

We have been at the new property for about 4 weeks now, and week by week the shelter is developing and improving. We have however learnt very quickly how expensive building is! When people told us to get an estimate and double it…they were not joking!

We now need to build a specialized puppy shelter for pregnant mothers, new born babies and small puppies (4-12 weeks old). Any puppy that is under 4 weeks old goes directly to our bottle feeder foster parents until they are old enough to come back.

This shelter we are going to build is specialized specifically for puppies, because a normal dog shelter does not cater for the needs of smaller puppies with regards to diseases, quarantine and extra care.

Puppies are very difficult to deal with because of all the diseases they are susceptible to at such a young age eg: parvo, distemper, giardia and many more. We deal with these diseases on a daily basis, therefore our biggest issue at the moment is that the facilities we have do not cater to our requirements.

Our highest priorities for this shelter are:

  • Drainage
  • Quarantine
  • Medical
  • Cleanliness
  • Heating
  • Easy access into kennels

We are the only shelter that we know of in South Africa that caters specifically for pregnant moms and puppies. Our specialty is pregnant moms and puppies. 

We do also have the older dogs, because unfortunately they don’t all get adopted straight away. Our pups from about 6/7 months old get to run around freely on the property and are not confined to a cage. They sleep in their kennels at night, and play during the day until they are adopted.

We are appealing to the public to help us make this possible. We have worked hard to get to where we are now, and are looking to the community to help take us this last stretch!

Thank you for taking the time to read about our shelter. We hope you come visit soon!
