New Kennel Project

Help us to keep housing animals in need...

25 years ago, HELP the Animals purchased used dog kennels (that were aproximately 15-20 years old to begin with). Since that time, those kennels have temporarily housed thousands of dogs. Some who had been abused, neglected or abandoned.

In the last 5 years, we have struggled to keep these kennels in usable condition; patching holes, trying to re-fence the rusted gates the best that we could, being inventive when it comes to trying to fix broken pieces... but, we have lost the battle.
