September 22, 2010: New construction has begun on several projects at the animal shelter. Since moving the animal shelter to the new Phase I building at the Cloman location in 2007, the dogs have been housed during the day in temporary outside kennels on gravel with shade cloth. Construction is underway on three cement slabs being built under cover, which will house isolation adult dogs, isolation puppies, and adoptable dogs/puppies during the day while the inside kennel areas are being cleaned. All three areas are being built under a pole barn type structure that will protect the dogs during the day from the changing weather and hot sun. The area for adoptable dogs/puppies will hold large play group kennels allowing the dogs to socialize with each other plus there will be a few small kennels for the dog that wants a little space from the play groups. Other outdoor projects include a large fenced play yard for the adoptable dogs/puppies, a community dog park (Kennels and Dog Park layout), a Memorial Garden (Memorial Garden layout), fencing to separate isolation dogs/puppies from adoptable dogs/puppies area, and asphalt paving to be applied behind and next to the building.

These projects were made possible as a result of a generous direct donation from John and Joyce Webb and a grant from Archuleta County Parks, Recreation, Openspace & Trails, and should be completed before the end of November 2010. Our outside dog kennels have been moved temporarily to our parking area to make room for the construction work. Feel free to stop by the animal shelter to check our progress and while you're out there, one of our dogs would love for you to take him/her for a walk!
