I know this seems like a high amount but we have so many improvements to do to the kennel now and we have taken in close to 20 New dogs in the past 2 weeks. I will go into detail later about where the money will be going.
We already have 25 dogs right ...

We already have 25 dogs right now that are fully vetted and ready to be adopted and this is a slow time of the year so we don't have much money coming in for adoption fees. We have not yet posted many of these new dogs for adoption since they are not ready yet. Most of the dogs don't need critical surgeries but routine dental work, spay, neuter etc. This work does exceed our adoption fees and is a lot of money up front. The amount needed to vet all of the dogs at this time is 5890.00. This amount is constantly changing since we get approx 20 -30 dogs surrendered to us per month.
We are adding a new room to the kennel now and will cost approximately 410.00.
We also need to repair the roof on the right side of the kennel. When the left side of the roof blew off last year it damaged the other side. This will cost about 200.00 to repair. The result of the damage roof was we will have to replace and repair the walls and ceilings on the 4 rooms on the right and on the rooms on the left we need to repair walls where the dogs have done damage. We also need to make the kennel more airtight since our power bill has been exceeding 300.00 per month. These improvements will cost about 800.00.
We have replaced the flooring in most of the kennel rooms 2 times since May 2012. We recently replaced the floor in the main room with resilient commercial tile. This is a more permanent floor that is easier to clean and repair and will be harder for the dogs to damage. To replace the rest of the flooring with a permanent floor will cost 873.00.
Supplies that are needed are
Vaccines 380.00
Dewormer 170.00
Flea preventative 125.00
Microchips 500.00
Any amount towards this would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks so much!!
