As many dread the sight of August, our organization is ECSTATIC. August to us means to adventures and so many more lives saved. August marks the first day in our new facility and we’re ready to take on our new adventure full speed ahead.
On Tuesday, we were handed over the keys and codes, we were able to see the progress done to our indoor dog park, accessible bathroom and all the indoor space and offices. Of course, our wheels were turning which in return added a bit of stress.
We have a lot to do before our launch of the dog park in October. Our needs are beyond supplies or even funding, we need those willing to donate essential equipment in order to open our doors and some great people to assist with some general labor. Who’s not afraid to get dirty?
Here’s the nitty-gritty:
- 60' of chain link fencing, 5/6 ft. height with 2 gates and installation
- 150' of corrugated metal wall panels and installation
- 40' x 28' of rubber flooring and installation
- 20’ x 20’ of vinyl plank flooring & installation
- 20’ x 20’ of carpet & installation
When it comes to the general labor, we’re needing installers, painters, cleaners, packers, movers, you name it!
This week's blog post isn't my longest but that's because we've been busier than ever with new seniors incoming, the new facility and more. Stay tuned!
I am, however, going to take a moment to thank all the freaking great people that have assisted in making Grey Face the success it is today. We have an amazing ARMY of people who advocate, donate, foster, volunteer and adopt our doggies. Thank you to our Leadership Team that volunteers full-time hours to ensure our pups are receiving the upmost quality care and are entering promising homes.
Thank you for commitment to our seniors - I will be forever grateful!
