Here are some ways your gift can help:
$10 – Buy some treats for our shelter animals
A treat breaks up the animal’s day and gives them something to look forward to.
$25 – Keep an animal comfortable
This gift will provide a comfortable bed to an animal at our shelter.
$50 – Give our kittens some toys to play with
Buys 20 assorted toys, to keep our mischievous kittens and cats happy and having fun during the day.
$100 – Microchip 2 animals
This gift will microchip 2 dogs or cats, ensuring that our animals’ new homes are their forever homes.
$200 – Help fuel our rescue vans for a rural rescue
Pets Haven has numerous rural pound contracts. We are pleased to say that we have reduced kill rates from rural pounds which were sitting at 100% to a reduced euthanasia rate of 10%. Our yearly financial fuel expense is in excess of $40,000.
$300 Bloods and Fluids
Often animals come into our care in poor physical condition and require immediate blood work and IV fluids. Your donation ensures an animal has access to this vital, life giving support.
$400 – Pay our toll fees for a month
With all the travelling we do so we can rescue and transport animals, Pets Haven incurs expenses for everything, including tolls.
$500 – Give a homeless pet a dental
It is no surprise that the majority of animals in our care arrive with various medical issues. One of the main areas of neglect is dental care. Many health conditions are also caused by having infected teeth and gums.
$600 Eye removal
Due to the type of rescuing Pets Haven does, we often get animals that many other organisations would not spend money on. By the time an animal arrives into our care, their condition has very often deteriorated to a point where an ulcerated eye, which could have been treated, now needs to be removed.
$700 – Empty our skip bins for a fortnight
We have 4 Cleanaway bins which require emptying once or twice a week.
$800 – Buy our work vans new tyres
For the safety of our volunteers, we need to ensure our vehicles are roadworthy. We operate 3 Vans that require road worthy tyres and maintenance. Without our vans we cannot pick up and transport animals.
$900 – Repair a broken leg
Help a dog or cat with a broken bone get back to good health. A fractured limb is many times grounds for euthanasia at other shelters, because of the cost of a repair and the time required for rehabilitation in foster care. This gift will help save a dog or cat from that fate.
$1000 – Clean the shelter
A gift of $1000.00 will buy a container of F10 which we use to clean the shelter. This helps keep the animals healthy and prevents the spread of disease between animals housed in the close-quarters of a shelter environment.
$1500 – Help a mother in labour
A gift of $1500 will help a mother dog or cat in labour who requires an emergency Caesarean. We often get animals from our rural pound partners who are dumped whilst heavily pregnant. Sometimes these require emergency surgery when they are in distress during the birthing process.
$2,000 – Cruciate ligament operation or TPLO surgery
Neglected rescue animals often come into our care with injuries that have not been seen by a vet prior. Often this requires major surgeries to fix an issue, by a specialist surgeon.
$5,000 – Heal 200 Animals
Upper respiratory infections (colds) are the most common reason for easily treatable animals to be in danger of being euthanised in our community. This gift will provide enough antibiotics to allow Pets Haven to save around 200 animals from that sad fate.
$10,000 – Vaccinate 2,000 Puppies or Kittens
Provide all the necessary vaccines to get a thousand kitties or puppies ready for their new homes. Your gift will provide protection from diseases like parvo, calicivirus, distemper, kennel cough and more.
$30,000 Help renovate our cat enclosures
Pets Haven’s Woodend facility is in desperate need of an upgrade. Whilst our cages are quite large, they are very old and provide minimal privacy. We love seeing our cats living in larger and easy to maintain cat condos.
$40,000 Pay our shelters rent for a year
Our shelter has to pay rent, just like you have to pay a mortgage or rent for your home. Paying rent ensures that our shelter animals have a place they can call home, until they find their forever homes. Our annual rent in Woodend is $45,000.
$50,000 – Desex 250 Animals
Each and every animal at Pets Haven must be desexed prior to adoption. This is not only law, but it is the ethical thing to do for animals in our community. This gift will desex up to 250 animals, which will have an amazing impact on prevention of pet-overpopulation for years to come
$120,000 – Pay our clinics rent for a year
Our clinic also has to pay rent. Paying rent ensures that our Veterinary clinic remains in operation and we have the facility to provide care for the 3500+ animals we rehome every year. Our annual rent in Bayswater Nth is $120,000.
