We repaired our dog-park latches, which were broken and were being held together with bungee cords. We fixed our door to admitting, which was broken and no longer opening. We made over our puppy room by painting the walls, steam cleaning the floor, and drawing a fun mural. We replaced brackets which had broken in our cattery shelving. We were able to purchase shelving units for our training room closet, which holds supplies for many programs. Since the puppy room is much more friendly-looking, people seem to be more engaged with the puppies.
