Friends, I want to talk to you about our Sanctuary.
To me, MOONACRE feels like one of the most special places on God’s Earth. Love and happiness pours out of every corner of this place. Our wonderful family of staff and volunteers enjoy their work, and the animals we take care of are as healthy and happy as we can make them.
At this time when many animal welfare organisations are struggling to keep afloat, we are no exception! This year, 2023, has been catastrophic in terms of basic running costs. Due to price rises, our weekly feed bill (with discount) has risen to a staggering Euro 490 – yes, that really is WEEKLY!
The scope of work at MOONACRE is unique. Our Sanctuary exists to provide care for the most vulnerable animals: the physically disabled, and the elderly in particular. There are daily veterinary visits and specialist medications needed to maintain quality of life across the range of species residing here. For example. most of our dogs are disabled, and almost every one of them has come to us as a referral from the authorities, veterinary professionals, rescuers, or desperate individuals. They have come to us because we are the only option available for them in Cyprus.
Our family income, and every donated cent, is entirely committed to keeping our Sanctuary bills paid, but we do not always succeed in covering our running costs. The burden is enormous. Despite our best efforts, we cannot meet the increase of the weekly animal feed bill to Euro 490.
I am appealing to YOU, our friends and supporters, and our followers on social media, to please make a donation to help us meet the Sanctuary food bills. We do not receive credit from suppliers, so we are in a very difficult situation right now. To get through the week, we MUST find Euro 490 to cover the food bills.
CAN YOU HELP?
I began this post by describing MOONACRE as a very special place. We are blessed to spend our lives caring for these animals who depend so much on us. We get back in return more than we deserve in love and loyalty. Our Sanctuary needs YOUR HELP right now, so please take a look at these photos of some of the dogs we are asking you to support with your donation.
PAYPAL donations reach us faster than bank transfers: our account is “email@example.com” and please select the GIFT option.
