- enthusiasts, volunteers
- place for the construction of a shelter
- materials for its construction
Weigh the pros and cons.Try to calculate not only the tangible costs (at least at the initial stage of design and construction of the shelter), but also their own.
not start work if you do not have sponsors and helpers.It is better to be engaged in their search.A good way - to turn to the public through the media.Advertise in newspapers, TV, use social networks, etc.Adherents necessarily respond.
The decision was made?Then go to the administration of your region to register a new non-profit organization - the animal shelter.You should contact the Department on work with public organizations.
Sign a lease for the premises or land where the shelter will be placed.This place should be away from residential houses, kindergartens, schools, but relatively close to the city, and have a convenient all-weather access.So it will be useful
Equip places where your pets will live.They must be spacious, comfortable and safe, and that it will be - cages, cages or kennels - the choice is yours.Ideal would be to have a separate place and feeding each animal.In total, you should have allocated six separate areas for pets quarantine zone (for new entrants and not surveyed);for animals with skin diseases;infectious diseases; for individuals infected with skin parasites and infectious;healthy (vaccinated, treated, sterilized);for the wounded and postoperative animals.Consider the fact that in the summer here should work ventilation, while in winter the room should be warm.
Build storeroom.This, at least: warehouses, kitchen, honey.room, staff room, toilet, septic tank.
Distribute duties among volunteers: Purchase and delivery of feed and medicinal products;veterinary services;feeding, cleaning of the territory;waste disposal;Information support.Assume that 15-20 animals must be no less than five people (with you).
Keep a record cast of animals, record the contact numbers and addresses of the new owners.Do not hesitate to call them to find out about the fate of their pets.
Build an animal shelter is very difficult task.Good luck in this noble but difficult task!
