PRESS RELEASE REGARDING CLOSURE OF KPH
The forced closure of Kitty and Puppy Haven, after 12 years, in Alexander could see all our animal being euthanized in the next 10 days!
After 6 years of applications regarding the re-zoning on our property, we were recently provided with permission to run the community clinic. However, the court advised that the agreement was null and void due to technicality
ties. After the hearing yesterday, Kitty and Puppy Haven has been ordered to remove the animals from the property within the next two weeks - or have all the animals euthanized! We are completely devastated..
The impact of this ruling affects far more than just the animals at the sanctuary. All Alex residents who make use of the community clinic will no longer have access to the services of the Kitty and Puppy Haven vet. Furthermore, Kitty and Puppy Haven will be unable to continue running whilst they make alternative arrangements, which mean the thousands of animals who are dumped or abandoned during this festive season, will no longer be able to come to the sanctuary and will probably end up dead. Over the past 12 years approximately 11000 animals have been helped by Kitty and Puppy Haven with numbers growing steadily every year. If alternative arrangements cannot be made, not only will thousands of animals suffer, but 16 staff members that have dedicated their lives to animal welfare, will be homeless and unemployed!
Our lawyers are currently in court finalising the amount of time we will have to make alternative arrangements as we are hoping for more than two weeks.
WE NEED HELP!
IF YOU ARE ABLE TO ADOPT AN ANIMAL, COME INTO THE SANCTUARY as we are open today and tomorrow as normal.
IF EVERYONE ON OUR PAGE DONATES R200 WE WOULD HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY A PROPERTY WHICH WE HAVE SEEN - WE NEED TO RAISE R2-Million TO START OVER
