PureEnergy's Fence For Helping Dogs

Hey guys!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read our story. Our names are Stacey and Travis Cotter and we own and operate Pure Energy Dog Training and Rehabilitation. We specialize in dog behavior modification, and by doing so, we have helped save hundreds, if not thousands, of dogs from euthanasia, being rehomed, or surrendered to shelters. We work with these dogs in our home, where we have converted a portion of our house into a training facility. Helping these dogs is our passion and we are so grateful we have the ability to do this for a living. I couldn't imagine my life being any other way. 
We are here to ask for your help. We have recently purchased a new home where we have been able to expand and help more dogs. One of the biggest financial, but also most important components to completing this transformation is the completion of fencing in our yard which measures at an acre and a half. 
By fencing in our yard, the dogs will be able to play more freely, socialize with other dogs off-leash which is incredibly important for building healthy relationship skills, be able to learn off leash recall safely, and it will allow us to hold group socialization classes where dogs who do not live with other dogs or have the chance to socialize with other balanced dogs can come and continue  their education and manners. 
Our number one priority is safety for these animals so we are looking to install a 6 foot tall stockade fence around the perimeter of our yard. 
100% of the funds we raise will go towards purchasing the material and for the installation of the fence. If there are any additional funds, we will reserve every penny for the food and healthcare we will supply for the rescue dogs we pull from shelters, train/rehabilitate, and place in new loving forever homes, where all expenses are covered by us. 
Ideally, we would like to have the fence go up on or around June 1st, as we are already fully up and running from this location. With summer approaching, we would love to get the ball rolling since we know most people will be looking to capitalize on the nice weather and address their dog's outside needs during these upcoming months. 
A fence may not seem like much to some people, but to us, it means we get the chance to save more dog's lives, help more families, and give back. To us, putting up this fence creates endless possibilities. We can't express how much your love and support means to us. Even if you can't donate, sharing can be just as powerful! Every penny helps. And every penny is so greatly appreciated, by us and the dogs alike. We thank you so much for taking the time to read our story and hear our cause.
Just like everything else I do, I promise to post pictures and updates during and after the installation is complete. :) Again, we thank so much for your kind support!
