Progress Continues In The Construction Of The New ACS Community Clinic & Kennels

Check out the the progress we’re making in the pictures and videos below!

Plus, your opportunity to purchase a memorial brick and help us in our efforts!

As we enter the holidays & approach the end of the year, the contractors for the Animal Care Sanctuary project are as busy as Santa’s elves.

Interior partitions are complete, and the building exterior envelope is complete and ready for winter.  All that remains is the decorative stacked stone veneer which will begin in the spring.

After the new year, we will begin selecting interior paint colors, cabinetry, flooring and other accessories.

Currently, attic insulation is completed as well as the hard ceiling.  Next work to be installed is the ductwork for heating and cooling.

Although it sounds as if we are near the end, we are far from that.  We have all the heating and cooling systems to install, all the plumbing, all the finish work, and a great deal of site work in the spring.

So please have patience while our elves busily work to make this dream become a reality.

Would You Like To Help Out With A Donation?

If you’d like to make a contribution, see how you can order a brick to help us pave the pathway! There will be an order form just below the pictures and videos. This is the perfect way to honor the memory of a special pet or person all the while helping out the staff and our animals here at Animal Care Sanctuary!

More Information About Our Project AND….the memorial brick order form opportunity!

Our clinic and kennel now have a floor, walls and a roof!! It is so exciting to watch the progress every day. Last year at this time we were finalizing our agreement with the contractor and talking about a spring start. Spring brought three months of rain and we were all so discouraged. But Mother Nature gave us a great summer and it is moving quickly.

The overall project cost is $1,771,000 and we still need to raise $705,000. We are meeting with Friends of Animal Care Sanctuary to talk about the importance of our project to the animals we care for – both in our kennel and the clinic that cares for our animals as well as the communities.

Below is a form to purchase a “memorial or in honor of” brick that will be on a pathway to the clinic and between the cattery and kennel with lush landscaping. We hope you will purchase a brick to leave your imprint on our sanctuary.

You may fill out and submit the form below directly to us! Or, if you prefer, you may click the image below this form in order to  download and print a PDF version which can be mailed to us.
