Next, with a permit in hand for the foundation, the footing and foundation were poured and other preparations were made for the new building.
The concrete floor was poured and once that set, Morton Buildings arrived on site to erect our steel building. That is now done with the exception of some final finish work.
With the funds we have remaining, we will be starting work on the electrical, rough plumbing, HVAC, and sprinkler systems. We will also be putting up walls in the lobby, cat rooms, bathroom, and grooming room.
We do not have funding for interior doors, an epoxy floor coating to make the concrete impervious to fluids as required, the dog kennels and cat housing, or the septic work necessary to reopen.
We are holding fundraisers and seeking corporate donations to help meet the increased costs but we need the help of all our supporters. Our mortgagee has agreed to release our insurance money, but most grants are available only to existing programs and we have been out of business for over two years with the exception of a very small foster program. Please consider a donation small or large. Help Sweetpea rise from the ashes and be a part of our rebirth. Together we can make this happen. We need the help of all of you to reopen our doors in 2019 to animals in need. All of the donations will go directly to the rebuilding.
