Dec 15, 2017 — Last week the ALP retained control of the Queensland government, and local member Nikki Boyd remained as the member for Pine Rivers, our local area.
The ALP have committed to establishing a Charitable Development Infrastructure Fund of $1 million, which will be available to any charity that finds themselves in the same situation as we are.
Nikki has advised us that Farm Animal Rescue will be the first charity to benefit from the fund, and that work on the highway access for the sanctuary will start in January.
We will keep you up to date, but it appears that the 42,000 of you that supported us have done something wonderful not just for Farm Animal Rescue, but for other charities trying to expand their facilities to better serve the community.
In the meantime, we are asking for assistance from our supporters to get us through the period from now until we open our doors again. Since the sanctuary doors closed, we have had five surgeries and nine rescues all who desperately need your help.
Thank you so much for your support. Whether you can donate or not today you are a still a champion for supporting our petition and you have made our 2018 look very bright.
