We have just completed our two latest projects at the shelter. Our beautiful Mulberry trees now have underground irrigation on an automatic timer to keep them healthy in the dry season. These trees are in the dog play yards and provide much needed shade for the animals. Part of the funds for this project came from the Barry & Ellen Goldstein Fund for Canine Health and Welfare and the remainder from the Ryan Miele Endowment for Animal Welfare. The work was done by Grasshopper Landscaping.
Thanks to the Ryan Miele Endowment for Animal Welfare we were also able to divide our two largest play yards on the west side. This gives us a total of eight multi sized yards and a puppy pen. The preparation for this project started in December (see December — Post ” Wonderful Day in the Neighborhood”) Besides cementing in the fencing all the gates needed to be moved for more convenient access to the yards. Now that the work is completed we will be able to have more dogs out in the yards at one time. Exercise is very important for the dogs. The work for this project was completed by Stan’s Fencing.
Thank you for the grants received and to everyone that worked on this project.
