Plea for Uitsig – July 2019
Dear Uitsig Friends
|We aren’t sure if you’ve been following our Facebook page, but we’d like you to know that the facility is going through some very troubled times.
On 13th December 2018 the Directors of Uitsig were removed by the High Court of SA due to mismanagement of the facility, and Mr Ryno Engelbrecht was appointed as Facilitator until such time as a new Board of Directors is nominated.
Since this date, the Facilitator, staff and his team have desperately tried to upgrade the facility and keep the doors open.
|The reality is – unless we receive significant funding support from the public or corporates by
31 March 2019, the Facilitator is once again faced with the closing of Uitsig’s doors.
As part of the Court Appointed Facilitator’s duties he has to attend to the care of the animals. Upon his appointment it was determined by a vet that 147 dogs out of 340 (a staggering 43%) needed some sort of urgent veterinary attention. This has been attended to by the Facilitator but the vet bill stands at R30 000.00.
A Liquidation Application has been brought against the landowners upon whose property Uitsig conducts its business and is a shareholder. The land vests in a company called Vendivax (Pty) Ltd. The balance of the purchase price was obtained from certain Shareholders, of which some are currently occupying the land. A Creditor and a Shareholder have brought an Application for Liquidation of Vendivax (Pty) Ltd, the landowner. A real risk exists that once the Liquidation Order is granted, and a Provisonal Liquidator is appointed by the Master of the High Court, such Liquidator may very well give the current occupants of the land, including Uitsig ARC notice to vacate and bring eviction proceedings.
Besides the R30 000 vet bill, funding of at least another R40 000 is required to keep the doors open (so R70 000 needed).
|Irrespective of the outcome of the Liquidation application the reality is that 400+ animals at Uitsig depend on US!
