HELP US GET THE DEFINITIVE GROUND
In Vacaloura we live in a rental land, which has no option to buy. The facilities are very old and need a lot of repair. We need to raise the money to buy a new piece of land to ensure the safety and future of Vacaloura.
We need to move so as not to waste money on construction
The current facilities are old and need many repairs, we are putting patches as we can, but we cannot afford to make large works and investments and then leave everything behind.
The sheep enclosure is very deteriorated, the interior walls that divided the space into 4 were demolished and what is worse, a part of the ground sank leaving a hole that will give a 1.20 M drop to the place where it was accumulated slurry. We have covered that hole with cement feeders but it is getting bigger and bigger and we are afraid that a sheep will sneak in and fall through it. On one occasion, one of the sanctuary cats (Troska) got caught and we had to break part of the wall to gain access to it and rescue it.
The main hall is very old, the first to be built in the area several decades ago. It has leaks in many parts of the roof despite the small repairs that we were making, the interior walls fell due to their poor condition and the exterior walls come undone when rubbed with the hands due to the wear of the rainwater that runs down them. When it rains a lot, the animal beds get wet, the state of the structure endangers the life of the animals in the medium term.
Changing the roof and reforming the walls involves an investment of thousands of euros and we have less than 2 years of rental contract left.
