BARK (Boarding And Rescue Kennels) APPEAL
Happy Landings Animal Shelter is pleased to unveil plans for our Regeneration Project.
We have planning permission to (over time) knock down all existing animal accommodation and build new ones.
This will take place over three phases, the first being new kennels. Our present kennels are over 30 years old and in desperate need of an improvement. We pride ourselves on the care we give to both rescue & boarding dogs and all the staff are excited about the new facilities matching that standard of care.
The brand new building will be located on the present exercise paddock, which will enable us to carry on with our existing kennels until the new one is ready.
We will have the same amount of kennels as we have no wish to get any bigger just better. We are looking for quality not quantity. Each kennel will have a large indoor space with under floor heating and a covered outdoor run so dogs will have the choice of being inside or outside. There will be bigger enclosed exercise areas either end of the new building.
Our aim is to be as Sustainable and Eco friendly as we possibly can and the whole build is designed with that in mind using specially designed materials, Bio Mass Fuel system and solar panels.
There will be several methods used to raise the money needed but initially we are asking all our supporters to get behind the appeal and start us off in style! From just a few people locally hearing about the plans we have already raised £25,000 which is an absolutely amazing start but……we need in the region of One Million Pounds!!
Can you help us by buying a virtual brick for BARK?
A Brick £10. A Row £100. A Wall for £1000. Everyone will receive a certificate and for anyone buying a virtual Row or a virtual Wall will have the opportunity to have a plaque with their chosen name acknowledged in the design of the kennels.
