Shutter A Kennel


We are always looking for ways to improve the Sanctuary animals quality of life which means we are always building or improving existing buildings. The next big Sanctuary project is to shutter all of our kennel runs ready for the winter. Installing shuttering will enable the kennels and runs to be shut down at night to keep the harsh elements out and will also provide shade in the summer because they can be open/closed independently. We don’t want to just shut the kids inside their sleeping area but allow them the freedom of their run areas, even in the depths of winter so it's a pretty big job but keeping them happy and adding to thier comfort is well worth the effort and expense. The shutters will be just like house shutters and will close over each mesh panel and we'll be doing about 100 kennels using marine board which is weatherproof and will last for years. The wood, bolts and hinges cost out at approx £12 a kennel so we are aiming to spend £1,200.

Giving the gift of £12 to shutter one kennel will make a huge difference to the dog who calls it home. Thank you x
