You do? Fantastic! That $20 will go a long way towards helping the Saga Humane Society reach their goal of building a new animal clinic. Donations can be made through the Saga website at //

Please take 5 minutes of your time to make a donation. If you've found any of my posts on this board to be helpful think of it as a pay back. This cause is very close to my heart and I ask everyone to please help out in any way you can.

On October 1st Saga will be evicted from our current facilities and we're trying to raise funds to build a new clinic. While donations are coming in it looks like there is no way they'll be able to get the new facilities up in time unless we radically increase the number of donations or find an angel to front the cost while we work towards raising funds.

Without a clinic on the island the health of the islands animals would rapidly go downhill and we'd soon be seeing increasing numbers of strays and malnourished animals on the streets.

Hundreds read this board and if everyone could give just $20 it would go a long way towards helping us meet our goals.

Do you have a projected budget for your facilities?

What is the target amount of funds needed?

Will you build in wood?

Always happy to donate to this cause.

Thanks SimonB

Hi Amanda,

I just viewed the projected costs at lunch time and it comes in at about $105K BZ. That's in concrete, I've also requested a quote for PlyCem construction. Either way it will have a concrete floor for easy cleaning and sterilization. We've included minimal sleeping quarters into the design to make it easier for the new vet to support themselves.

The land cost $35K BZ and we have a low interest loan for that component.

Kathy has copies of the plans at her shop if you happen to drop by.

Thanks Sandi, I'll be at BC's on the 14th, ask any of the staff if you need to find me.

Many thanks Ernie!

I'll see if I can't post a running total of donations sometime soon. The response over the last few days has been overwhelming to say the least.
