How $25,000 from HomeAgain Helps Would Aid this Shelter

The Grand Prize would go far in making animals more comfortable. A portion would be used to install a misting system to help cool them on hot summer days and heat lamps and insulated dog houses to provide warmth in winter. Funds would also be applied to renovating a portable classroom that was donated to the shelter; it could be outfitted as an infirmary with a whelping room for nursing newborns. Also, the shelter could afford to buy stainless steel cages like those in veterinary hospitals. These provide a sterile environment and decrease the likelihood of cross-contamination of animals recovering from spay/neuter surgery.
