Video: Animal Aid moves 300 animals to new site
Animal Aid’s five year lease was coming to an end so in December 2012 we found a beautiful 3.5 acre piece of land just down the road which we have taken on a 20 year lease. We’ve been busy in the last five months building kennels and paddocks for the 300+ shelter and hospital animals in our care.
It’s time to welcome our 70 precious shelter dogs, many of whom have been with us for several years, to their new home! After being carried one by one through the gates of their new home they have all been doing an amazing, and fast, job of adjusting. The stress of the move is reduced by the fact that they are surrounded by all of their old friends. Home is where the heart is and love makes a family! Everyone is busily exploring and finding their favorite place, many even making friends with old rivals in the hubbub. Our darling blind dogs are certainly among the bravest of souls right now as they learn the new landscapes, but they are taking it slowly and getting more confident by the hour. We are delighted to watch them play and race in their new digs!
The gypsy caravan you’re about to see in the next short video is the Animal Aid team moving about 75 cows and donkeys to THE ALL NEW ANIMAL AID UNLIMITED hospital and shelter constructed on land we have leased for 20 years!
Without the loving encouragement from Animal Aid’s supporters, and without the astounding hands-on help we had between beloved staff and volunteers who sweated it out together in over 100 degree heat, the move surely would not have been possible.
During April, despite the searing heat, the animals were soothed with the coolest currents—thanks to tremendous help from Nic (UK), Liz (USA), Dr Sarah (Australia), Ariane (Netherlands), Kathleen (USA), Sharon (Bermuda), Dahlia (Switzerland), Karin (Netherlands), Neha (India), Naisargi (USA).
