Who let the dogs out?

A small step for humans but it’s a huge step for the Animatch dogs.  At last, after months of not being able to just run free and interact with each other, the dogs have a safe yard where they can run, play, or just sniff to their heart’s content.  Volunteers are just as excited as the dogs as you can see in the photo of Nancy Rich and her husband, David,  who were the first Volunteers to enjoy the freedom with the dogs.  Special thanks Eric Crewe and his team at Enterprises Ermac.   This amazing crew of diligent guys worked through snow storms and sub-zero temperatures.  Helen, the Volunteers, and especially the dogs are so grateful. 


Slow and steady wins the race.  We are getting closer to our goal of $200,000.00; we are now at $180,000.  With the help of a few fundraising initiatives in progress (i.e. Bling them home for Christmas, Craft Fair in Pointe-Claire, etc.).  A few of our supporters (one a very generous 10-year-old girl) have decided to forego birthday gifts and have asked family and friends to make a donation to Animatch instead.  It has been a long and tough climb but we will reach our goal – we are determined.  Animatch is always receptive to any company that wants to step up and donate either money or materials that could be used in our new Centre. 


Insofar as the new Animatch Centre is concerned, there was a delay in delivery of the truss for the roof to go up.  It is scheduled for delivery at the beginning of December and then construction will begin in earnest.  In the meantime, the dogs are happy – they have a fenced yard and a warm place to snooze.  It’s not perfect but they are sheltered and cared for while they wait.
