Help stop the slide!

For years, we had a dream: big, beautiful building that would provide shelter and care to the homeless, unwanted, and abandoned cats and dogs in our community. In 2012, after years of wishing, fundraising, and planning, the dream became a reality.

The facility has since then provided a home to thousands of cats and dogs in the area. Unfortunately, the unavoidable deteriorating effects of Mother Nature has caused quite a BIG problem. Our beloved building that saves so many animals in need is in danger of sliding down into the ravine! Hauling rocks by the 5 gallon bucketfuls back to the top is a daily occurrence, just for them to slide back

We have been planning, speculating and trouble shooting for years on how to fix this daunting and potentially disastrous occurrence, and finally we have devised a plan to build a large retaining wall to levy up the east side of the property to halt any further progress downward into the ravine. So now we have the plan, the specs and the timeline-the only thing left is support from you!

We are blessed to live in a community that has shown time and time again that they will support us in our mission.

The total cost is estimated is $40,000. At 25% of our annual operating budget, this is not something we can do alone. And right now, keeping the building erect and functioning at full speed is the number one objective! Sponsorship of this project is available in many levels to fit any budget.  Please find our donation form here: Stop the Slide commitment form
