We are Lora’s Luck, a non profit full cradle to the grave free at the point of first contact and use rescue foster and adoption service for black dogs in need. We have the opportunity to obtain by leasehold an amazing piece of secure coastal land in South Wales with private beach access to start putting the next stage of our plan in place- a first-in-the-world dog friendly support, educational, leisure, retail and entertainment complex! If there’s nowhere to take your dog where they are welcome, and safe to go for a walk, in the light of a frightening increase in the number of dog thefts, at prices that are affordable, what quality of life is that for your dog(s) or you and your family?
For Lora’s Luck Cooperative Hub
TRULY Dog friendly and fully accessible:
A community hub, where people and their pups can drop in for a chat, check out the shops, grab a full English (or should that be Welsh?!) or a cuppa and cake in the cafe/ food market, pick up top quality locally produced groceries and other ethical products for dogs and humans, go on dog safe walks across the fields and beach (including walking groups) and maybe try a course or two, hold their community meetings, need doggy daycare, or training, come to one of our dog shows and fayres, run or get involved in an art, crafts, performing arts, IT or other workshop, tend the community garden or chill out in the community library- whatever would make it a relaxing and fulfilling experience for you, your family and your dog(s).There is enough land to also have the most peaceful and secluded dog friendly picnics, and even beach days out.
TRULY dog friendly short stays and longer vacations.
Is there any such thing as a truly dog friendly holiday? In our experience no. They can’t go on the furniture, or upstairs, or ever allowed off lead in the grounds. And god forbid they bark too much in a strange place or have a toilet accident indoors! High extra deposits and charges for pets often price a holiday out for people who’d like to take their pup on holiday with them. Here there will be no such restrictions as all holiday rents will be fully dog friendly by default, and if your dog’s not off lead ready yet, even help you train your pup! The land is completely fenced in to the highest standard and not only does the land have great open fields, but it also has it’s own little beach and woods in a perfect location on the South Wales coast between lots of great tourist attractions along the coast and Brecon Beacons National Park which is an Area of Natural Beauty just a few miles north, there will be all sort of holiday options to try out!
This is why it’s perfect for truly dog friendly aires, camping, apartments for holidays, and so much morel
But we need funds!
With everything both full accessibility and dog focused, we feel this is our chance to offer our unique ‘dog friendly’ place: safe and secure with views to die for and a base to explore South Wales, but also should you want to, to get more involved with Lora’s Luck and what we do in all aspects of the organisation (no obligation).
All regular donations of £10 and over monthly will be put in an annual draw to win a free holiday!*
The first 100 people to donate £50 or more on this fundraiser can have a free day pass** at the centre for all facilities*** when we open! (Full documentation in email, updates and a voucher system will be given.)
More discounts and offers can be added the more successful this fundraiser is.
Only full members of Lora’s Luck are automatically eligible for lifetime discounts and freebies for all products and services including live in options. Any adopter, regular donor and/or volunteer can apply for free to be a full member of Lora’s Luck.
WHAT DO WE NEED RIGHT NOW:
We need £100,000 (gulp!) from this crowdfunder to submit our proposal, to get started and expect to be self funding should our bid be successful from all the projects on site and online within 2 years. Donations start at just £3. It can be a one off or regular donation.
Community funding by the government is at an all time low, and we’ve waited nearly three years with no help or support. We are a non profit, so every penny of the proceeds not used to maintain the site will continue to go to help our dogs still in rescue that are still in desperate need, and looking for their forever humans.
Please donate if you can, and share!
If 33,333 people all gave just £3 one time, we’d have what we need to make this a reality and start setting up!
If 10,000 people gave £10 a month we’d be set up for the lifetime of our and all rescue dogs and their adopters! (And don’t forget the free annual all inclusive holiday draw as well as increasing the likelihood we could set one of these up in your area every time we hit this target!)
We would like to offer accessibility for our adopters, and all dog adopters all over the UK, including those deemed as vulnerable- on lower income, or with disabilities (hidden or visible), or the elderly, or live alone, to these good value and friendly services as well as a chance to stay connected with like minded people. We have seen through Covid how these groups in particular have been especially isolated so creating a social hub for individuals and community groups all united through their love of dogs and we would like to do our bit not just to help our dogs after adoption, but all dogs and their humans! And the land itself already has wheelchair friendly paths and access roads.
Investors also welcome who are interested in supporting a unique community project. Vets, behaviourists, accountants, insurers, banking services, lawyers, plumbers, electricians, retailers, human doctors …any aspect of life that affects our adopters; all welcome if you are dog focused and want to help us campaign and spread awareness of the law and good veterinary practice for rescue animals and help us push for much needed change, or offer your services to our retailers virtually or on site - or just want to help out a non profit?
Just £3 will make such a difference to the lives of all dogs and their adopters. Please donate, enter our holiday draw if you can, and share our fundraiser!
