Save Flying High

Flying High Pet Resort is "Where All Dogs Fly First Class". It's not just a slogan, it's our MISSION. In 2008, I opened Flying High with the goal of it being a place where we could make a difference in the lives of animals. We are not your normal day care, grooming and boarding facility. We strive to make your pet so comfortable and happy that our place becomes an extension of their home .You and your pet are not a number to us; you and your pet are part of our forever family. 

In order to further fulfill our mission of improving the lives of animals, we also board/foster dogs rescued from the local Camarillo shelter. We feed, house and care for them free of charge . We do this with love and kindness such that they can begin to feel safe again. It is amazing to see how they blossom mentally and physically when they realize that someone loves them.

In late May of this year, my landlord informed me that we would need to move out of our current building so that he could use the space for other purposes. The idea of closing our doors breaks my heart, not just for me and my staff, but for the extended family that has come to rely on us to love and care for their dogs. At present time, we do not have enough money to make the transition to a new location and a loan is not an option. We need your help. Our family needs your help. Our dogs need your help.

We need to raise $18,750 by 09/01/13 
* $5,500 for the city permit
* $8,250 for the moving in First months Rent + Security Deposit 
* $5,000 to set up the new building. Floors, Paint , plumbing , moving 

Please consider helping save Flying High by making a donation so that the move to a new building will be possible. For more information about us, please visit our website http://www.flyinghighpetresort.com. Thank you!

Sincerely,
Dawn Lopez

Their are lots of little this and thats to be done. 

if anyone wants to help us with labor to save us on some costs that would be amazing.

Time ! All I need is Time .... and Funds 

Met with my Landlord today. He is waiting to hear from the motercycle company if they gets the bid or not. We are all in limbo. He did say he hopes to know by July 1st .... I also found out yesterday that their is not any rentable places in the zoned area the City recommend . Which means that I will have to go through the process of getting my Conditional Use permit. Fee + Going through the citys panel of Judges. I know that they will help me as must as they can with Time. It usally takes 2 months or more but they realize I only might be given a months notice to vacate my building. I hate asking for help. The stress of not knowing if I can raise the funds to keep the business open is heatbreaking and Overwhelming .

On the positive Side , On the bright side I have found a building and the new landlord is willing to rent to us. It is near by and even bigger then the one Im in now. All I need is time and funds. I will allso have to come up with First months Rent and securty deposit for New place. Thank you for all the support so far . I appreciate it more then you will ever know. 

$5,500 city permit 
$7,600 fisrt months Rent and deposit 
Up to total of $13,100 now and thats not even moving costs. 
Please give me some hope . 

Note = If we do not reach our goal and the doors of Flying High Closes I will be donating All funds recieved from Donations to a Local Rescue Group. So any $$$ you donate now will go to a very good cause no mater what <3 :)
