Ark Volunteer Somer helps socialize a puppy!
A 10 year old girl named Laura decided she wanted to help the Ark. She began making "plush crosses" and selling them at school. She recently brought us a donation that she collected from selling the crosses. She hand-made the crosses from fabric and stuffing and sold them in 3 sizes, small, medium, and large. This proves that even small hands can make a big difference. Thanks to Laura for her kind and generous heart and donation to the Ark.
Andrew Haight is a Life Scout with Boy Scout Troop 412. He is completing his Eagle Scout Project for the ARK animal rescue shelter in August 2010.
For his project he made six PVC cat hammocks to help reduce disease spread as they can be washed. He also contacted Feline Snoozers, manufacturers of PVC cat towers. They donated one of their small towers and Andrew sought donations to purchase a larger cat tower.
Secondly, Andrew designed and then led a team of scouts to make a dog agility course to help abandoned or abused dogs more relaxed and trusting towards humans, while also providing exercise. This will help rehabilitate rescue dogs and help build bonds as they work together with a volunteer. The course includes two ramps, one dog walk, a teeter totter, a dog weave, and three dog jumps.
Thank you to Andrew for his hard work and commitment to the Ark.
