Coloring for the Dogs

The Project:
Coloring for the Dogs is a fundraising project to install garage-style overhead doors to protect the shelter dogs' outer kennel areas from the weather. Each kennel has an indoor section and an "outdoor" section, which is roofed. The doors will replace the old, damaged winterizing plastic that is currently in use for these roofed "outdoor" areas. The doors will be more durable, better sealed, and easier to maintain in the long run than the plastic. This will allow us to regain the use of these areas in the winter as well as the hottest days of summer.

First Goal: $3,000

Meeting this goal means we can complete the most time-sensitive part of the project: Canine Intake. The winterizing plastic in this area has deteriorated to the point that we always keep the dogs in when it's cold or windy, because the plastic no longer keeps the weather out. If we raise $3,000 we can make sure that Canine Intake is warm and secure all year long.

Stretch Goal: $8,000

Meeting this goal would mean that we can complete the entire project before Winter 2019: Canine Intake and Canine Adoption. The adoption area is less urgent, but still can't be used fully in frigid temperatures. If we raise $8,000 we can complete the entire project before winter. Then all the dogs at the shelter will be able to choose whether to be "inside" or "outside" all year long.

Shelter dogs have few choices available to them, but one choice you can help us make sure they have is whether to be "outside" or "inside" without being exposed to the weather. They'll have more space, and they'll feel less stressed during their stay. Participating in this photo contest, buying the coloring book, and donating toward Coloring for the Dogs will help us make this tangible improvement for the shelter dogs!

The Coloring for the Dogs coloring book will be available for sale starting mid-late Summer 2019. It will be offered in a downloadable format as the whole book or by the page. We will also offer special print editions on a pre-order basis.
