Hurricane Ida did extensive damage to the front building that housed the Lobby, Kitchen, Office, Bathrooms, Doggie ICU, Doggie Nursery, the East Wing and Cat Room.

  •  The winds peeled the roof off like a sardine can.
  • Water poured in where the roof was gone, so the entire building will need to be gutted and rebuilt.
  • We lost everything in the office - computer, printer, telephone system, & supplies.
  • ​The computers in the commercial washer/dryer are damaged & we don't know if they can be fixed.
  • The Kitchen cabinets, storage closets, microwave and all supplies not in plastic containers could not be salvaged.
  • ​All towels and blankets were used in our doggie evacuation.
  • Although the front windows did not break, they leaked water and need to be fixed, too.
  • The Page Fence around the property has many sections down due to fallen trees.
  • Our food stored in the Cat Room was spared.
  • The Suite Building and new air conditioning unit were spared.
  • The cost to just fix the roof was $13500.
  • Estimate  to fix the interior of the building, fencing and get rid of the fallen trees is at
    least $20000 .

  • The Building Owner did not have property insurance.
    • Our rental is only $1500/month.  
    • Property insurance would have cost them $24000/per year.
    • They decided not to get the insurance to keep our monthly rental as low as possible.
    • FEMA has denied the Building Owner's application for assistance to fix the building.
    • The Building Owner is over 80 years old and does not want to go into debt to finance repairs herself.
    • We need to pay for the repairs to be able to stay and operate at our current location.
    • We know that many in our Village sustained damage just like we did.  Our prayers are with you.
    • There is a "Go Fund Me Page" set up to help.  If you are out of our area, or were not impacted by IDA, we really need your financial support.
    • There are so many dogs who were left behind during evacuations that need our help.
