The Story

WMC has been in the rebuild process for quite some time.  There are still some improvements that need to be made and we can't do it without your help!  We are so very, very grateful for the generous donations we received thus far.  We could NOT have done this without you all!!  We have the best supporters!

First and foremost, we need help in preventing escapees from our new fencing that was installed.  Our property is on very uneven ground which has left room under gates in the play yards.  The only way to remedy this situation is to have the area leveled out and having several tri-axles of crushed limestone put down.  We  have found this extremely worrisome especially with our little ones and our hounds who love to try to venture out.  (See pictures posted on this site on what we are dealing with.)

We are also in need of having a canopy built over the outside dog runs to protect our rescues from the weather.  When we are away from the rescue, our dogs have doggie doors that lead to outside small runs where they can relieve themselves.  This would protect them from rain and eventually snow this winter.  

Lastly, we need to purchase some fence barrier screens to prevent fence aggression between play yards.

Approximate costs of the above:

Leveling of play yards and crushed limestone -- $2,000
Building of canopy over the outdoor runs -- $3,000
Fence barrier screens -- $1,000

Our goal is to raise another $6,000 in order to make sure our rescues are safe and secure.  No amount is too small!  We are a non-profit 501(c) charitable organization. All donations are tax deductible!  

If you donate $100 or more, you will be included on our Donor Wall in our new facility--which we are calling the "Dog Dorm"!  

We are in the process of preparing our donor wall.  We are using ceramic tiles and decoupaging donors' names on them.  Once these are completed, they will be grouted onto the walls of the Dog Dorm.  Your name will forever be in our new facility!  Of course the larger the donation, the larger your tile will be!

Again, thank you all for your support!  


OUR STORY (originally posted in January 2015)
WMC has been forced to relocate & rebuild their animal rescue.  We are in the final stages of our Rebuild Project and we need your help!   

***Please watch the video above for more details.***  

Town Board ordered all animals on our current property be removed due to barking complaints. New location purchased-facility needs complete renovation!
The property has been found and purchased.  The pole barn on the property needs to be completely renovated in order to provide adequate shelter for our rescues.  The new location is in Putnam County, Indiana, where a kennel license is not required if on more than 5 acres of land that is zoned Agricultural - 1.  This property is on over 17 acres and is zoned AG-1!!   

With the donations received so far, renovations have begun, but we need to raise a lot more in order to acheive our goal!   
We are estimating the renovations will be at least $40,000.

Estimated costs:
  • Spray foam insulation inside the entire structure -- $10,000
  • Septic and plumbing -- $10,000
  • Heating/Air Unit and ductwork -- $10,000
  • Concrete floor, electrical overhaul and other improvements -- $10,000

We cannot do this without your help. Please consider donating!  No amount is too small.  It will all add up!  We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  All donations are tax deductible.
***We are planning a "donation wall" inside the new Dog Lodge.***  

If you donate $100.00 or more, your name will be forever displayed in Waldo's new Dog Lodge.  Of course, the larger the donation, the more prominent display you will have!  Updates coming soon!

We have rescued and placed in their forever homes, 300+ animals in the past three years.  There are so many out there depending on us.  It is breaking our hearts that we cannot pull anymore of these animals "on death row" until we rebuild.  
Thank you from Waldo's Muttley Crew and from all the furbabies out there that need us and YOU!

Bazooka is in surgery right now!  He will have the growth removed and all of his upper teeth.  :(  But we are thankful they were able to do the surgery today so he can finally live a pain free life!  Estimate so far this surgery is going to be in the range of $2,500.  Thanks to all that have donated so far.  We appreciate it so much!

We were really hoping we wouldn't have to ask you all to share this again, but we have found ourselves very low on funds and there are still things that need to be done on our new property.  We have to keep a little cushion in our bank account in case an emergency arises with our rescues.  We need more crushed limestone to put around the bottom of the fencing of the play yards due to uneven ground.  This is needed in order to prevent any escapees.  Also, we need some electrical wiring work and plumbing done in the building.  Plus several other things.  We were hoping the yard sale would aid in paying for some of these things, but with the circumstances that didn't happen.  Would you please share?  We would love to get to our goal of $40,000 raised.  We are currently at $36,574!  That is really, really amazing and we thank you all for the shares and donations!  Can we get that to $40,000?  All we can do is try!  When sharing this post, you will need to copy and paste this text.  For some reason when sharing, this text will not show up unless you do so.  Thanks everyone for being so supportive of our rebuild and rescue efforts!

"Work has definitely begun on the new Lodge!  Plumbing lines have all been installed as well as the drainage system for the floors.  Framing is all in place for installation of ceiling and walls.  The concrete is being poured today!  WooHoo!"
