Raise the “New” Roof

Top-001For 12 years we have covered many of our outdoor dog kennels with tarps to protect from the heat and the rain, as well as shoveled tons of snow from our 20 x 60 “patio” area. And now, thanks in part to a very generous financial contribution from a long time dog-loving supporter; we have been challenged to raise the additional funds to extend our roofline to completely cover the 20 x 60 area!

We are determined to do it!! The plans BackPatio2are in production and the original estimates are done. If only 56 donors gave $500, or 280 donors have $100 we could be “over the top!”

Our goal is to do the building addition early next spring. Your generous donation will help us reach this challenging goal.

As of January 1st we have received donations totaling over $29,000.

Faith-Raise the Roof-posterThese two lovely girls have made their own flyer to help the shelter raise funds for the new roof.  We would like to encourage you to do the same.
