On September 5th, 2018, we received an eviction notice and we are being kicked out of the land we are occupying.
Our 850 dogs are being kicked out of their home.
We couldn’t turn a blind eye to the thousand+ animals under our care.
Where will they go? What will happen to them?
We’d been working on a permit for a new shelter for 6 years and thankfully we received it right before the eviction notice.
We couldn’t give up on the animals.
Against all odds and through the economic crisis in Lebanon, we decided to build them a new shelter.
Thanks to all those who donated, phase one of the new BETA shelter construction has been accomplished; we’ve been busy setting up the construction site, clearing it from excess shrubs,
excavating the land and getting it ready, building stone load-bearing walls, buying construction insurance and finishing the terrain leveling.
With phase one done, the urge to start phase two is pressing. We must leave the current shelter and meet our deadline before the final judgement is pronounced.
Phase two consists of two main points:
The construction of the kennels for over 800 dogs that will have a special designated an area for seniors
As well as putting up fences for the areas and kennels; separators will be set up between groups and common play areas will be built for the dogs’ daily exercise.
We are running out of time!
The economic crisis in the country as well as the turmoil and imminent threats make it almost impossible for local donors to help.
800 dogs, 150 cats, horses and donkeys currently face an uncertain future
We cannot let them down.
They need every single helping hand so they get the shelter they deserve
Please help build them a shelter
