LUCKY LUCY NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Following the heart-warming success of our fundraiser for LEAPS during May and June, our designated animal welfare organisation this month is the Lucky Lucy Foundation, a registered non-profit that is entirely dependent on the generosity of strangers and desperately needs our help.
The foundation was established in January 2010 after its founding members discovered a pregnant dog tied to a railway line with wire. Lucy, as they named her, lost one of her front legs as a result and was fortunate to survive, so her name soon became Lucky Lucy.
Lucky Lucy is an ambassador for neglected and abused township and street animals everywhere. The foundation actively helps the worst cases, those who simply would not survive if left unaided, no matter what it takes or how long. That doesn’t mean they accept suffering unnecessarily, rather that every animal they rescue will get the best possible chance of a better life.
To do this, and to change the public’s perception of animal shelters, they have established a sanctuary on a farm 20km from Malmesbury on the N7, where dogs and cats are rehabilitated so that they can be re-homed. That takes time, money and resources – and that’s where we come in.
Check out the graphics that show in detail what the foundation needs just to get through this winter. Pick an item, large or small, and bring it to Killarney’s Power Series event on Saturday 10 July. There you’ll find bins at the gate for your donations. If you can’t make it on the day, bring your donations to the Killarney admin building during working hours throughout the month of July. Our admin staff will gladly make sure that they get to the foundation.
The Lucky Lucy Foundation is a registered charity (NPO: 091-636 / PBO: 930-036-404) run by a five-person board, all of whom are volunteers and receive no remuneration for their efforts. Donors are always welcome to visit the farm to see how donations are used to benefit the animals in their care.
