Building update, donations needed

by austinpetsalive • Posted in: Awareness/ PR

Hi everyone!
If you’d like to come out to the building this weekend to help us get ready for our Open House next week, we’d love the help! We’ll be out there from 9-6 this weekend painting, cleaning, installing cabinets, putting kennels together, and fixing up gently used items. We hope to start moving some pets in as soon as next week.

We’ll be bringing kittens over on Saturday from noon-6 for our first adoption event at the new building. Please stop by, play with some cute kittens, and help us get our building ready to become their home!

In addition to the painting and other tasks, we also have need for some specific skills:

  • Handiness with a hammer and saw
  • Electrical – changing out light fixtures
  • Land measurement – measuring out our yards and figuring out what we need in fencing
  • Donation pickup – We have volunteers scouring craigslist and other sites to find used supplies. We need a driver who can go and pick things up for us. Please contact email hidden; JavaScript is required if you can help with this.

If you can’t volunteer, but would like to help, we need help with getting supplies and materials. You can visit our wish list or donate funds to help us buy what we need.

    I would like to help by donating some used chain link fencing. I may also be able to help with picking up donations as I have a pick up truck.
    You may call me on my cell at 917-1722.
    I realize you may be busy this weekend with opening your shelter and may not be able to get back with me right away. I will await contact from you.
    Good luck with everything you are doing for our four legged friends.
