A Bright Future for HAA
Hardeman Adoptable Animals is continuously working to ensure that 2019 is the year that we finally move into our forever home! We want to share another update with the community and our supporters. We have made significant progress in preparing the site for a drainage system and concrete slab. The metal building (see photo) will be located on the concrete slab, and this building will house the dogs. This setup will provide a sanitary place for the dogs to stay. This will lead to less cleaning time for volunteers and happier, healthier dogs.
HAA would like to thank Ricky Ayers for completing the electrical work on the administration building. It has been rewired and now has a new working meter! This is a huge step in our progress toward getting the concrete slab poured for the new metal building. The next step for the administration building is have a new HVAC system installed. This is scheduled to take place at the end of March. Then we can start on plumbing and get a working well. The immediate future plans include: completing the administration building, and having a kennel building erected, closed in, inside walls finished (dog proof), and then we can begin furnishing the kennels and work rooms inside.
We know that we still have a lot of work ahead of us, but we have made significant progress. We have saved about 4,000 dogs from Hardeman County since 2011, and we will be able to continue this work in a more efficient and safer way once we are able to move into the new shelter. We cannot do this without the support of our community. Thanks to all who continue to support us in our efforts.
