Securing the future of PAAWS

The piece of land that PAAWS has been renting for its animal shelter since 2004 has become available for purchase on January 14, 2014.

In order to be able to give proper care for the dogs and cats in need PAAWS has built dog pens, a cat house, laundry and storage units on the premises.
PAAWS also made modifications and repairs to the existing small wooden building, so that it could be used as an office, additional storage space and for food preparation.

By purchasing the piece of land PAAWS would not only secure its investment, but would also avoid the risk of having to face a possible increase in rent or having to relocate, in case the piece of land is being sold to a third party.

Please help us raise ECD 140,000 = approx. US$ 52,500
(purchase price of the land plus fees) to secure the future of PAAWS.
