BEST Friends Animal Rescue is looking for a big-hearted builder to oversee construction of a retirement home for dogs.
Group president Jeane Howe said the not-for-profit also needed the skills of a concreter and plumber to help make the long-term project become a reality in the Perth Hills.
“We have building plans drawn up, and an engineer, three bricklayers, an electrician and a window installer have all kindly donated their time to help us,” she said.
“We’d like to rescue old and special needs’ dogs that through no fault of their own end up in the pound or whose owners have passed away.”
The retirement home would provide shelter for about 30 dogs in a homely environment of four bedrooms, two quarantine kennels, a laundry and a bathroom.
Ms Howe funded BFA Rescue in 2006 with the help of volunteers who provide administrative help and foster unwanted, neglected and homeless dogs until permanent homes are found.
City of Swan approved land for use as a dog retirement home in April last year.
The group has re-homed more than 700 dogs and would like to hear from other people willing to contribute their time, donate goods or donate to the $180,000 project.
