Our Old Shelter

Built in 1978 and expanded in 1988 the old shelter just didn’t work anymore.  From being too small, to mold, uneven heat, poor water pressure, and more it was simply not the animal shelter that our community deserved.  But don’t take our word for it- a picture is worth a thousand words…
