Garrard County Animal Shelter in Kentucky needed to update their kennel facility. The original kennels were really falling apart - creating a hazard to the dogs and employees! We originally looked at replacing the gates and keeping the block half-walls - but after a number of issues were found with the existing block, it was easier to simply replace everything.
Garrard County had a great crew come in and tear out the old kennels. The floors were washed and resealed before the new kennels were installed.
The new kennels are 4ft wide x 6ft long x 6ft tall. The lower half of the gate is solid to reduce fence-fighting and to calm the dogs down. The top half of the gate is slotted. The stylish running paw design makes the kennels look great!
Garrard County expects adoption-rates to increase as the updated facility looks more inviting. It is also much easier to maintain - allowing the caretakers at Garrard County Animal Shelter to spend more time caring for the dogs and less time cleaning!
