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:
We cannot do this without your help.
- 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
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!
