Brief descrition of the project
|Animal Life wants to build a shelter for abandoned dogs in Sibiu. In recent years the number of animals sterilized, treated or offered for adoption by the association has grown steadily, up to several hundreds in each category. To develop our activity we need proper shelter, open to the public.|
The problem the project solves
The target group are stray dogs from Sibiu, approximately 300 dogs each year (this is the number of dogs given up for adoption by Animal Life each year so far).
An indirect beneficiary of the project is the local community for two reasons: the number of stray dogs will be reduced and animal lovers will have support in finding accomodation for dogs they save from the streets.
• Decreasing the number of stray dogs.
• Building a shelter where animals can be looked after and taken care of until they get adopted.
The changes the project brings to the community
Sibiu will finally have an adoption center where both volunteers and people, who are employed, can work.
This means that,
• Animal Life will have the possibilty to take over more animals;
• the cooperation with the Townhall Sibiu will be continued and more animals will have the chance of being adopted;
• in time, neutering and adopting animals as well as organising educational programms will lead to a decrease in the number of stray animals. Thus, the number of animals suffering because of diseases and parasites will also decrease.
Animal Life will take over all costs for the project team as well as those for planing and authorisation work.
The money raised during this event will be used exclusively for buying construction material. We will have all bills for these.
The costs for building a shelter for approximately 100 dogs are of 40,000 Euro:
– 30 enclosers
– treatment room
The rent will be payed by Animal Life.
The future employees will be payed by Animal Life.
Animal Life has raised 10,000 Euro so far, 14.000 lei were raised during the Half Marathon of the last couple of years.
