A Doggie 4 You is located on 100 acres in the beautiful Texas Hill Country with an unforeseen opportunity to transport three new buildings in an effort to expand our shelter and provide each dog with indoor housing. We are a no-kill facility that was started in 2007, has grown by leaps and bounds, but is still a work in progress.
The mission of A Doggie 4 You is to promote spay/neuter of pets, rescue dogs from kill facilities and unsafe environments, rehabilitate and rehome the dogs to loving homes. Our organization has placed an average of 700 dogs/year for the past several years.. We are known for accepting dogs with significant medical issues or assisting owners with limited resources to care for an injured animal. We accept dogs from all over Texas. All dogs are quarantined and fully vetted prior to placement.
Currently we have facilities set-up that house over 150 dogs; however a large number of dogs are housed in temporary outdoor kennels that have drainage issues. We have had to evacuate our temporary facility in the past when flooding occurred. The three new 24x64 buildings are being purchased with donations and matching funds. The new buildings will hold 60 dogs each and the dog pods will have a 10' x 20' covered pen .. Each pod will be attached to a large 20' x 64' dog run. They will be located on high ground that has no drainage issues. Our goal is to have every dog in a comfortable building by the Holidays.
The urgent need came together when the organization finally raised the funds to purchase the 3 modular buildings and now need to transport them to their designated locations on the ranch. The first bid was for 29K per building or an outrageous 97K. A second bid was just received from a company which is sympathetic to our mission and is for 15K to move all 3 buildings. Additionally, the second bid is only extended for a short period of time. Other costs for this project include transport insurance during the move, grading at the sites where the buildings will be placed, and additional costs to hook up utilities for each of the buildings. The organization has some funds available to make the buildings fully functional 2-3 days after they are placed on the ranch.
We are one of the only no-kill rescues with the ability to enlarge our numbers virtually overnight in an emergency or a time of crisis. A Doggie 4 You was very actively involved rescuing and finding homes for over 100 Hurricane Harvey dogs, ferried much needed food and medical supplies to affected areas several times a week, and transported rescued animals to shelters who were assisting with the relief efforts. With the exception of kennel techs, this is an all-volunteer non-profit organization who would use the grant money wisely and swiftly to take advantage of the opportunity placed before us--a limited time offer which we cannot afford to pass up. The buildings are being purchased 10/16/2018 and have to be moved within 30 days.
