MAY 2022: NEWS, RENOVATION UPDATES
As spring winds down and summer comes knocking a little early, it is the perfect time to share some knock-out news on behalf of our Renovation Chair and Board Member Emerita, Cheryl Rykowski.
MARCH 2022: “UNDERWAY!”
A MESSAGE FROM OUR RENOVATION CHAIR
I’m thrilled to announce that our renovation project kicked off, officially, on March 3rd with a ceremonial groundbreaking attended by over 60 supporters, dignitaries, donors, volunteers, staff, and friends.
Our wonderful builder, Tary Tarlton of Kenosia Construction, and our talented architect, Lynne Persan, were on-site to update well-wishers on our plans to modernize the facility and make it an even better haven for dogs and cats on their journey to find a family.
While we initially thought we would need to complete the renovation in two phases, we were humbled and awed by a series of very generous donations that are allowing us to fully replace our kennels, and upgrade the rest of the building, in ONE phase! Our anticipated completion date for ALL work is June 2023 with resumption of services, back in our shelter, shortly thereafter.
I look forward to keeping you informed of our progress along the way. It’s going to be exciting…and we’re going to do so much MORE for the lovable, adoptable dogs and cats in our care, and in our community.
If you have already made a campaign contribution, thank you. If you are still considering a gift to support this project, there are many opportunities available. Please contact our Development and Marketing Director to learn more at email@example.com.
With kindest regards and deepest gratitude,
