Progress Report

New Digs for Dogs and Cats

Status: We are 90% complete with the huge package we have to submit to San Bernardino County to get the approval process going -- so close! All this preliminary work has been a long process! And we are probably 12-18 months from getting our final approvals and permits.
And the good news is: This gives us more time to raise the funds necessary to build our exciting new no-kill shelter and animal adoption complex. Our goal to start Phase 1 is $1,000,000. As of April, 2022, we have $300,000 in our capital campaign fund. 
Bring on the site plans: Our plans for the new shelter and adoption complex will consist of several buildings that include housing for cats and kittens, dog kennels, plus several shaded dog parks for doggie free play. 
Bottom line: We have a challenging goal and we are so thankful for your continuing donations. Nearly 100% of our funding comes form our loyal and enthusiastic community, a solid donor base, volunteers and many fundraising activities which include birthday fundraisers, Amazon Smile purchases, and our annual Woof!Walk and Giving Tuesday. 
We are so thankful for all your donations to our "New Digs for Dogs & Cats” campaign. We cannot do it without YOU.

or food, shelter and medical care.
