It is that time of year again and Spring is upon us. The birds are chirping, the flowers are blossoming and our moods improve. Sadly with Spring come Spring showers and with them gallons of mud for our poor shelter dogs. The dogs have no where else to go and face spending days in wet, clogging, dirty mud, making them shiver with cold and taking the lives of those not strong enough to stand these conditions.
Last year we started making improvements in some of the kennels by paying for gravel to be put down and paying for stray for the dog houses to try to help the dogs stay warm. The gravel helps but for the most vulnerable dogs we wanted to go one step further by providing tiled floors. These cement tiles are the only way to really avoid the mud altogether and they also make the kennels easier to clean.
