Our Animal Shelter was built in 1975. It was originally designed to hold stray dogs for 4 days, after which they would be adopted or euthanized. A lot has changed in the last 40 years. Our primary purpose is to find new homes for the animals in our care. We also now take in many more cats than dogs. That is why we need to renovate and modernize our shelter. Last year, in cooperation with Cheboygan County we completed phase I of our renovation. Four new rooms to house our cats were created. We are now looking at the beginning of phase II. This phase will completely house our cats were created. We are now looking at the beginning of phase II. This phase will completely renovate the dog kennel area. We will have a separate room with more kennels for adoptable dogs. Another room for stray dogs. A room for small dogs and puppies and a separate room for quarantined or aggressive dogs. There will be a “meet & greet” room where potential adopters can sit with a dog in a quiet setting and get to know them.
We are very excited to get phase II started but, we need your help. We have begun a fundraising program called “Buy stock in the new Animal Shelter” We will be issuing “Honorary” stock certificates to individuals, groups or businesses that purchase stock to help fund this project. Together we can get this project completed by next year. Thank You for Caring!
The certificates are available and will cost $90.00 per each cubic yard of material. The first issue of certificates will be for a cubic yard of cement. To purchase your certificate please mail your donation with a check and the following form to us here at the Cheboygan County Humane Society.
