Materials for Puppy Cabin

On November 16th, 2011 at 11 am. Due to the woodstove chimney separating up in the ceiling, our puppy cabin was totally engulfed in flames in a matter of minutes. Though volunteers tried to save the animals inside, it was impossible, and we lost 3 sweet and wonderful animals. Luckily most of the animals had been out in the exercise yard at the time, or it would have been much worse.

After the cabin burned down last year, all of our elderly dogs had to be kept in our Kennel manager’s kitchen, we simply had no where else to keep them. We would like to avoid having to do this again, this winter!

It’s been almost exactly one year to the day since the fire, and after alot of set backs, we are FINALLY able to re-build. We need to work quickly because we need this building for the coming winter. It was, and will be again, our only heated building. Our older dogs and very young dogs, and some of our cats, will be kept there, so they are comfortable and warm over the winter.

Construction is going really well, we have had some wonderful volunteers helping Bob, our president, who is overseeing and organizing the construction.

The foundation has been poured, the wooden frame for walls and roof are in place, and we have begun putting in the insulation. Last weekend we ran out of insulation and work has come to a halt. We are raising the money needed to buy 14 rolls of R19 15″ and 18 rolls of R38 23″ insulation, as well as 54 sheets of fire-resistant sheetrock.

Please click here to donate what you can. Anything you can give toward these items will help us to get this cabin up and functional for our animals this winter.
