Volunteer Day – Painting the Shelter – 27th August

August 27, 2022 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 am

Sponsor the Shelter Extension & Paint Some Pawsitivity! 🎨 🏡 🐶

We are hosting a fun, family friendly event to help us prepare our shelter extension and are asking our lovely supporters to please help sponsor towards the extension as well as come down and make a difference by volunteering your time and creativity! 🧑‍🎨

Our main shelter is full. With hundreds of dogs and cats as our residents and a shelter that started off as a sandy warehouse forecourt, the shelter grew quickly and organically as more and more dogs came into our care. It means that we didn’t have time to plan effectively and that we can’t rescue anymore from the streets without building bigger and better…

When the site next door to our shelter became available, it felt like a sign… so bigger and better is exactly what we are aiming for ❤️ The site was rented a number of months ago and we have been slowly preparing it whenever funds allowed. With the events of the last 6 weeks, the number of dogs displaced on the streets and surrendered has increased rapidly and we need to act now.

Work has begun on the shelter extension and our ultimate aim is to connect the two sites and have one bigger and better main shelter for all of our dogs and cats!
We are asking for you to help in one of two ways…or both! 😊

Paint the Wall

  • Sponsor a Row – 250 AED
  • Sponsor a Column – 1,000 AED
