Construction has begun on new outside kennels and runs at the Top of Ohio Pet Shelter. Jim Wolf's crew are doing excavation on the top of the hill, preparing for the installation of 20+ outdoor kennels and fenced in dog run areas.
The outdoor kennels will provide a roomy area for dogs to be located while their indoor kennels are being cleaned. This will make it easier on both the dogs and on the kennel staff.
Also being fence in is an area that will become a couple of large dog runs to allow dogs to exercise and socialize in doggy play groups.
The red maple tree and bench currently on top of the rise, is being relocated to the front of the facility where it will overlook the lawn toward US 68.
Other expansion includes a trailer behind the shelter building that will house the shelter's intake facility, shop and a meeting space.
