FUNDRAISING GOAL MET!

After 10+ years and thousands of dogs, our floors and kennels have all seen better days. The floors are in need of sealing and repair. As you can imagine, 10 years of wear and tear, cleaning chemicals and thousands of dogs using the kennels has taken a toll. 
 
The kennels themselves are deteriorating and our state inspector has warned that they will soon fail inspection. Due to their design, the kennels now in use are very difficult to sanitize and are unsafe for dogs in some circumstances. After much discussion, research and planning,  the WHS Board of Directors has approved a design that will better protect our dogs from injury and unsanitary conditions. The new kennel design includes a “fear free” feature that lessens the amount of distraction the dogs receive in the kennels and will reduce their stress.
 
The estimated cost for this project is approximately $147,000 to resurface the floors and upgrade our doggie quarters. Thank you for your support to give our canine friends housing that is safe and clean!
