Renovation Update 3/2/19

The renovation work at Shep’s Place continues. It’s been difficult to work outside, due to the weather; the play yards are soaked and frozen. Still, they have begun putting up the inner chain link fences.

The new kennel / former garage has a new exterior door. They will put up siding next week.

They are scraping the exterior wood so it can be repainted.

Inside, they have been covering the floors with a water-resistant sealant. Makes it easier to clean up dog messes!

They have begun installing lighting in the kennel.

They are also replacing the countertops in the kitchen.

Next up: new heating and AC for the kennel, and new AC for the rest of the house. Lord knows when it will be dry enough outside to pour the driveway. But it’s getting close!

  1. What a wonderful thing you are doing for our older puppies! We will look forward to following your progress….wish you were closer (we live south of St. Louis), and we’d visit….and probably volunteer. Thanks so much for your kind hearts and dedication to your project.

  2. I wish I was closer to you all but my daughter lives close by. I have rescue dogs too. Just wanted you to know how much I admire what you are doing. God bless. it

  3. Your dog sanctuary is an answer to our prayers. Large dogs are not welcome in senior living places
    We have two large rescue dogs. Penny is a flat coat retriever., the predecessor of the golden retriever. Lucky is a Newfoundland runt
    Lucky and Penny are lifelong friends. Lucky will always defer Penny is the “Big Sister”
