Support our new sanctuary expansion by helping us buy our own land

At Dumaguete Animal Sanctuary, we rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome hundreds of dogs and cats every year, but our current rented sanctuary is bursting at the seams. We are heartbroken to turn away animals in desperate need every day due to a lack of space. Being critically overcrowded also brings its own challenges in controlling infectious diseases and providing care to special-needs animals. 

We have found the perfect 2.8-hectare (7-acre) property in Zamboanguita, near our current location, where we can not only expand but also set up new initiatives to transform animal welfare in our community. With your help, we can secure this land and provide a safe, permanent home for our rescues, giving them the space they need to thrive.

Why we need your help

This is the biggest and most important fundraiser we’ve ever done, and we truly cannot do this without your support. We’ve signed a conditional deed of sale for 180,000 USD to purchase this new land, which will allow us to expand and transform our rescue efforts. To take things one step at a time, we’ve divided our fundraising goal into three phases, following the installments we agreed on with the seller:

Phase 1: 60,000 USD due on August 15, 2024

Phase 2: 60,000 USD due on October 15, 2024

Phase 3: 60,000 USD due on December 14, 2024
