New Dog Kennel Nears Completion!

Mark your calendars for the official Grand Opening of Bear's Den on Wednesday, March 28th at 10:00am and an Open House on Saturday, March 31st at 10:00am. Both are open to the public!
Bear's Den
We thrilled to announce the near completion of Bear's Den, our new large dog kennel that will provide an addition 32 large dog runs at Operation Kindness! Named after Bear, the Great Pyrenees mix adopted by the building's donors, the new addition at Operation Kindness will double the number of big dogs we can shelter at any one time and increase our overall dog capacity by 50%. To enhance the environment for the dogs, our new dog kennel will have garage doors that can be opened on nice days and a leash-free dog park that can be used in addition to the two leash-free dog parks currently used at Operation Kindness.

New Education Room/Office Space
In addition to Bear's Den, we are adding more office space and a new education room to our facility! The Education room will be used for volunteer orientations, girl and boy scout troops and more. The new office space will be used for our business team with their previous office spaces being converted to a new Animal Intake area with separate rooms for new dogs and cats, and a more private area for those surrendering new animals to Operation Kindness.

New Gazebo
Another major addition is the large gazebo that has been erected on the grounds at Operation Kindness! Soon convertible benches and tables will be put in the space to make it the perfect place to host Kamp Kindness (a children's day camp in the summer), our Anniversary and Alumni Celebration on July 21st, or just sit with a dog and enjoy the nice weather! All supporters of Operation Kindness are invited to attend our Ground Opening on Wednesday, March 28th at 10:00am.
