Shelter update

For those of you watching progress or lack thereof on the new government shelter, here's the latest - The bids came in too high so we've taken two steps back. Time to reassess the plans, the money options or whatever else needed to get this project going.

Unfortunately, after the new office building was completed the old kennels were demolished, reducing shelter capacity by about 40%. Meanwhile the staff struggles with 300+ animals a month coming through and trying to squeeze all those into 20 two-sided kennels. Let's hope government officials address this soon. It's important to remember these aren't old filing cabinets being stored until the new building is complete - it means animals are dying because there's no room at the inn. Big difference.
