It’s now been four years since we opened our first 12 of 30 climate controlled kennels. We spent the last couple of weeks giving them a fresh coat of paint and some upgraded wall panelling, and they look great. Two pack paint on the bedroom floors for durability and a non-slip rubberised paint like on a tennis court for the outdoor runs. The cage fronts have a charcoal grey finish. The dark colour makes it easier to see the dogs through the wire.
We had a big day yesterday, with the help of a crane from Tutt Bryant we got the roof beams lifted onto our 18 new air conditioned kennels. Although our target is to get them completed for Christmas, we are really racing to get the roof on before the Build Up arrives. And if you live in Darwin, you know that could be any day now.
It’s been years in planning and preparation, but the construction site is looking much cleaner today with the completion of the concrete floors and footpaths for 18 new air conditioned kennels. Last picture shows the first 12 Air Conditioned Kennels completed in 2014. The dogs love the space and coolness, and so do we. We are very pleased to have been able to source terrific recycled materials for much of the structure. Including stainless steel insulated sea containers, coolroom panel for walls, and structural steel for the roof. Thank you to everyone who helped source and supply it all.
We’d like to thank the RSPCA Darwin for a tremendous effort in putting together this year’s fundraiser and dog rehoming event. Hundreds of people attended and did the walk. I’m not sure who was more tired us or our dogs.
