Buy A Brick, Build the Future
As many of you know, we are about to lose our current headquarters as the landlord has other plans for the entire building.
Following discussions with the Kalkan Muhtar, Deniz, and Mayor of Kas, he has offered us a piece of land between the market and bus station to build our own, purpose built headquarters. While many details are still to be finalised, our plan is to have 2 ‘cabins’, which will house both our shop and an animal care/recuperation area and a certain amount of winter food storage. There is space to have a small outdoor garden area for recuperating street dogs and to effectively replicate what we already have in far better, more useable, more efficient format. A lovely bright, clean headquarters.
However, all this is going to cost money, quite a lot of money. Our recent campaigns have been hugely successful and helped us to help many more animals, pay vets bills, keep the winter feeding program going, and so on. This new HQ will take us to a new level and whole new chapter in the story of KAPSA. So we are asking for your help again to get this mammoth project off the ground.
That is why we have created this Buy a Brick campaign. The sooner we can start raising money towards a new HQ and the full equipping of it, the sooner it can become a reality. We are looking to raise £5000 or 40,000 TL. As we progress along this path we will of course provide you with updates about where we are at both here on the website and in our Facebook group. The cabins will not literally be bricks of course, but these campaign ‘bricks’ will be building an even more secure future for KAPSA and the animals of Kalkan and the surrounding villages.
Every person who donates to this appeal will have their name featured on a special piece of wall art, your donation will be immortalised in a drawing of a brick wall for everyone who visits the HQ to see. You can choose to have your own name, or that of a friend, family member or anyone else you would like to have featured on the wall.
If you would like to donate towards this campaign, please just complete the form below, click donate, and follow the onscreen instructions to donate by credit or debit card.

Once again, we can only offer our heartfelt thanks in advance for your continued support. None of our work with street animals would be possible without two essential ingredients – our hard working volunteers and our incredibly generous supporters. THANK YOU!
PROGRESS SO FAR…A paw print will appear each time we get £100 closer to our target.
