The Story

Very exciting news!!!   We have finally found a job trailer that is the right size and cost.  This will be attached to our home and remodel into our rescue room.  This is a project that is a long time in coming and we are just giddy about getting rolling on it.  The intention of this expansion is to allow us to greatly increase what we are doing.  We hope to have the unit here later this week and can get started on our destruction - in order to move into construction.  SO - I have created this fund raiser to cover 7,000 that will get us going with this new room ready for the fur kids.  Only with your help can we make this a success.

If you prefer to send funds directly you can paypal to [email protected] or email me at the same address for mailing information.

04/26/2017 - Now that we have better weather we are spending every moment pushing through. We have the counter cut for the doggie bath tub, the plumbing is in with the exception of completion of the tub, which can't be done until the walls and floor are complete.  The hot water heater is in and I am really liking the propane in-line heater so far. 

We have the run spaces cleaned and most of the posts cemented in ready for chain link fencing.  We still need to finalize on the gates before we can cement in the closure posts and begin stretching the fencing. 

The biggest visual accomplishment is the cement pad and properly built steps at the door of the house.   We also have the framing in for the deck portion of the entry ramp and are looking forward to a work Saturday this weekend to complete the ramp.

The list of things still to do is huge and we are constantly juggling funds.  Donations are very much in need to keep up this pace.  If we can keep the momentum we are hoping to be in the building within a few months - at least - before the end of this year.

If you prefer you can paypal, via. friends and family, a donation to [email protected] - or -
email me at that same address if you want to mail in a donation. As a 501c3 your donations is complete tax deductible.

Welcome to a wonderful new year.  We have so much great stuff on our 2017 horizon.  We are expecting to be into our new building by mid year.  There is still a lot of finish work before we get there though.  We are expecting to need about $3000 more in materials before we are move-in ready, so donations still are greatly needed.  We have the electrical and plumbing nearly complete and hope to be starting with the hallway connection to the main house, insulation and drywall before the end of January.

We are way pleased to announce that we will be receiving an Intel Grant targeted for completion of the covered runs and covered entryway.  We have several events scheduled for those efforts.  http://displacedpetsrescue.com/EventsFlier.jpg

To donate to our expansion we have several methods. You can donate through this fundraiser - or - you can paypal friends and family donation to [email protected] - or -  email me at that same address if you want to mail in a donation.

How about an Expansion update??? With all the hard work and the funding needs to Stacy Lou's surgery I haven't updated recently. We had a great weekend with Ken and Nick here to help on the roof. Hopefully it will be ready for metal in the next week or so.

Washer and dryer are installed and in use - with a temporary water connection till we get the hot water heater in. Gotta get moving on that though as it was 31 degrees this morning and need some stuff to happen before we get freezing nights... To many things not enough time.

I got the doors to the office re-finished and working on putting on the varnish coats. They are turning out wonderful and will be very excited to see them go into place.

Have the window seat box all build, just working on the sanding - then finishing. The lid is leaning against the wall. This is what I do when Pat is on the roof where I don't go...

Thanks again to those who have supported our efforts and please continue with shares and donations when you can.
