Cache Humane Society: Capital Improvement Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

The metal ceiling in our 3,000-square-foot Bow Wow Boulevard wasn't designed to keep our dogs cozy and comfortable through northern Utah's cold winters and hot summers. The barking contributed to anxiety and our adopters' experiences were often stressful.

Support from the Petfinder Foundation allowed us to install an insulated, sound-absorbing ceiling below the cold, hard metal roof.

Our dogs have already noticed a difference; barking and stress have been significantly reduced. Our adopters are noticing that Bow Wow Boulevard is still a great place to come look at dogs, even as the temperatures outside drop.

Support from the Petfinder Foundation helped us improve our aging shelter to provide a healthier and happier stay for our shelter pets. The new ceiling in Bow Wow Boulevard replaces the original metal ceiling that was hot in summer and cold in winter. The metal reflected noise and contributed to shelter stress and an unpleasant adopter experience.

Our new ceiling provides insulation, sound absorption, and a better experience for shelter pets and people.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Daisy is jumping for joy in her new and improved temporary home. As one of our longer-staying residents, we want her time with us to be safe and fun. She gets daily walks around our play yard, social time with her fellow canines, and now she comes back to her bed and toys in a warmer, quieter kennel. Thank you, Petfinder Foundation!
