QAWS :: Large Tent URGENTLY Needed!

Chelsea
By Chelsea

Since the fire in September, QAWS now has 30 outdoor temporary runs for the dogs (currently holding over 50 dogs and puppies). As the temperature is rising daily we are in desperate need to get some kind of structure up over the runs to provide the animals with air conditioning.

At the moment our best idea so far is to obtain some kind of huge tent structure but we have no idea how to go about this. We need a 12m x 26m tent! If anyone has any idea where we can get this made, donated or buy one from please let us know. Obviously we need this as cheap as possible or for a company to sponsor it.

We can't rent one as I doubt it will be in great condition after 6 months of holding dogs so we need a cheap way of building or obtaining our own. Does anyone have any contacts with the military or events companies who might be able to get us a second-hand one? We can do repairs etc so it doesn't need to be brand new.

We've had a generator and 4 air conditioners donated so it's just the tent we're waiting on and we need it soon!

Any ideas gratefully appreciated!

Just to clarify as the Mods still haven't had time to change my original post and I don't know how to - the tent needs to be 12m x 26m.

Unfortunately we can't use the temporary offices as the kennels are already built and we need to build a shelter over the top of them.

Tried the US/UK forces to see if they have any old canvas mess tents, they could donate ?? if they are not big enough you could put them together, and get a join put over the roof edges and take out the centre walls. Appart from that it is going to be very expensive I would imagine, even if you can get something cheap outside qatar without free cargo space it will cost a fortune getting it here. Load of old temporary offices from a construction site or camp, knock holes through the walls and build links between, might be more indestructable than a tent, and stay cooler longer.

Still looking! We have a couple of leads as to where to get one made but they seem to be a bit too expensive for us at the moment.

Something will come up - it always does!!

XRay - I didn't post this under QLVG because a lot of our supporters are not members of that group. I decided the main forum would be best as everyone goes there.

as I mentioned, maybe QLVG could help...

Does it REALLY A BIG DEAL where this topic should be posted?

Just because I'm an idiot and apparently can't do even basic maths - the tent needs to be around 12m x 26m. We can work with a slight variation in size but thats roughly what we need!!

Phew - thats half the size we thought we needed!!

Thanks guys - we really appreciate your help.
