News & Events

A.D.O.P.T. is always planning exciting events to help raise money and awareness for the animals in our care. Check back often to see what's new on the calendar!


The Great Kennel Cool Down!

This week, the air conditioning unit in our kennel failed.  This old unit has served us well for more than a decade, but the time has come to say goodbye: the unit cannot be repaired and must be replaced. We're lucky to have a few days of cool weather to make the switch, but need to act quickly before the temperatures climb.

Our need is simple: the shelter needs a new industrial A/C unit to keep our dogs safe and cool this summer. The heating and cooling units in our intake/ISO rooms where brand new dogs and sick cats are quarantined are also threatening to give out; we hope to raise enough to replace these unreliable units as well, which will allow us to avoid expensive emergency repairs/replacements further down the road. 


We've collected estimates for the project, and the shelter will need to raise $15,000: this will allows us to replace our A/C unit and perform much needed maintenance on our other heating & cooling equipment to ensure they continue to operate reliably.  Every donation of any size helps and will be greatly appreciated.
