Building Project - Fenced Dog Yards

We are raising funds to build four safe, fenced dog yards for our shelter dogs to exercise in. The floor will be concrete for sanitation and safety reasons. There will also be a concrete retaining wall to keep dogs safely contained within the fenced area. Our dogs currently have a single yard with no drainage system. We sometimes house as many as fifty dogs or more. These yards would allow us to give individual dogs the play time and exercise needed in order for them to relieve stress and enjoy outdoor activity.

In our first three years of operation we have saved 1,054 shelter animals. Please help us to provide a rehabilitative and safe environment for these animals to enjoy.
