The heat is on! DP Plumbing (Darren) has the floor heat in motion. Saturday a work crew cleaned the kennel drains and swept floors in preparation for the epoxy to be applied by Parker Smith and Company. This is great news!
Thank you for supporting this project!
Have a wonderful holiday!
DP Plumbing is working on the installation of the 2 water heaters. One is for the floor heat and one is for water to all the fixtures. This is a tremendous job. Water is needed in almost every room. The floors will be heated by tubes of water that run under the concrete. This should keep the animals warmer in the winter. The kennel areas need multiple hose bibs for cleaning and feeding. The plumbing and drainage are the most important part of kennel operations to keep the kennels clean and warm and free from diseases and bacteria. THANK YOU DARREN! The epoxy and finishing of the kennels can be done after the heat is operational. However, funds are low and we are depending on the holiday season donations to help us out. Join us for our December events!
Darren Placek of DP Plumbing is working many hours to complete the plumbing for the dog and cat kennel areas. The guest and volunteer bathroom fixtures are installed. The hot water heater installation is in-progress. This is a big job because it includes the installation of the floor heat, which is a wonderful new feature for the animals. Darren has acquired a used, good condition, stainless steel sink unit for the food-prep room. As you can imagine, with water and drains needed in almost every room, the plumbing for the building is one of the largest jobs to be done. Darren has volunteered his labor and much of the materials. Thank you Darren!
Kelly Brodigan and Spectrum Woodworking, built the cabinets for the medical room. This will provide a nice work area and lots of storage for animal control and local veterinarians, who may work at the shelter in the future. Thank you Kelly!
Epoxy work and additional kennel work remains to be done. We need the kennels completed, gates and epoxy. These are major steps that still need to be completed. Our funding is very low and we hope that November and December charitable giving will get us through the completion of the kennel areas in order to move the animals from the old shelter before winter.
