Harbor House of Central Florida opened its new Paws for Peace kennel and in-kind donation center Thursday, after years of fund raising and planning.
Sadly, this kind of facility is desperately needed.
Back in October Life With Beagle helped organize Doggy Day Out Orlando, which collected donations for this very facility.
And in November I walked in the Paws for Peace walk, and raised about $150 for Harbor House.
This is why we did all that. And take a close look at the following pictures... you may recognize some of the things you donated.
|A section for pet items.|
|In the shelter itself, a pantry for food.|
|This sink is part of a full-service grooming area. Hollywood Houndz in Lake Mary helped provide the equipment and volunteers.|
|Two sets of these cat condos! There's room for 10 cats to live comfortably. They are working on getting a multi-story condo for cat families.|
|A cat porch! Owners can sit out here with their cats and relax.|
|What are they watching on the cat porch? The dog park!|
|There are 10 of these kennels for the dogs. And each have a bed, dishes and something to chew on.|
|And finally, dog runs. For when the dog just has to go.|
