GREAT NEWS! We EXCEEDED our goal for the PLAY YARD RENOVATION FUNDRAISER and hope to begin renovations on the outside dog kennels soon! The shelter dogs are raising their PAWS in the air!
Thank you to Cindi and Dean from Rottermond Jewelers and their wonderful staff. They went above and beyond helping to raise the funds and we’re so grateful!
Special thanks to Cindi Rottermond for leading the work on the raffle of the three Shinola watch prizes, and for generously donating proceeds from her yoga classes. Cindi continues to donate her time teaching yoga at the shelter for donations.
Thank you also to Champion Buick GMC for their generous donation towards the renovation project!
Last, but not least, the cats think everyone who purchased raffle tickets are the CATS-MEOW…they love it when the dogs go outside!
Our kennel runs currently share a cyclone fencing wall which is often stressful for dogs who are unfamiliar with one another. To address this issue, we plan to add a visual/physical barrier to the cyclone fencing. We found an economical and effective solution via vinyl fencing slats that will allow wind to filter while providing a 4 foot visual/barrier between dogs. This will minimize the stress for the dogs and create a safe place for them to exercise, potty, and rest in the sunshine. We also plan to top the kennel runs with cyclone fencing to prevent dogs from jumping over (yes, they actually do this!). We can weave that same vinyl slating into the cyclone toppers to provide much need shade on sunny days and protect the dogs from inclement weather.
