We won a grant from Pepsi to build a roof over our shelters but we estimated the cost too low and need more funds to finish our project. The small roof has been completed and is making an awesome difference to the dogs! It provides shade, protection from the rain, and makes living so much more comfortable for them! Please help us raise $3k to get this done! We are also in need of dog food, please help us!
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Our community is over run with unwanted animals. We have no animal control and no funded facility to help with the stray problem. Dogs are being shot every day because there is no place for them to go. Ranches do not want them on their properties and home owners don't want the responsibility of the dogs. We are a no kill shelter and have placed over 1,000 dogs in loving homes. This not only helps the dogs, it helps the community because they have no place to turn for help.
How will this project solve this problem?
It will enable us to continue accepting dogs when space becomes available because it will ensure all the dogs here have proper shelter from the sun, the wind, and the rain. It will also help us to feed the dogs because dog food has become very expensive and we can't take them in if we can't afford to feed them.
Potential Long Term Impact
This project will have a life time benefit because once finished, this roof will be a permanent solution to the shelter problems. In the past, we have used tarps which are always blown away and in need of replacement multiple times a year. It isn't cost effective to continue doing this. A roof will last a life time. We are off to a great start in accomplishing this, we just need a little more help to get it done.
