What's so revolutionary about this type of animal sheltering model? This model creates the 1st self-sustaining animal shelter in the country that does not rely on tax-payer funding (as city and county municipal shelters do) nor does it require a significant amount of time being allocated to traditional fundraising as the restaurant and retail components are expected to generate sufficient revenue for operations. Secondly, in this shelter model, there are no cages, kennels and no involuntary isolation of dogs and cats for long, extended periods of time. Once dogs and cats are vetted and cleared by one of our veterinarian partners and behavior team, they are welcomed to a day of play and socialization if that's what they choose. If they are not party animals they have the option to spend their time in comfortable living areas socializing with people and/or other animals occasionally and lounging. When and if they are ready to join the party animals, they will be welcomed to. In the evenings after we close, dogs, puppies, kittens and cats who are buddies have the option of having an overnight slumber party together in their respective comfortable living areas. Thirdly, this project simultaneously provides job training & placement services for over 500 unemployed and under-employed people each year. 24/7 on-site care is provided. Read more here and get involved.
Help Us Deliver the Next Generation in Animal Sheltering in America!
