A collaboration between Animal Adoption Center & Aska’s Animals
As a foster based organization, securing homes where rescue animals can reside while they wait to find their forever homes is the limiting factor for intake from overcrowded shelters. This is especially true for litters of puppies, kittens, and medical cases. All of which require more specialized care. The significant increase in adoption demand we experienced in 2020 exacerbated the need for safe foster and quarantine space.
To meet this demand, the idea of the “Puppy Palace” was born. While the long-term vision of this collaboration is grand, our pilot program involves the construction of a 12’X16’ habitable and animal proof facility that will reside on the property of Aska’s Animals in Victor, ID. This facility will house homeless cats and dogs for a minimum of 52 weeks over the next two years. In this partnership, the AAC is responsible for securing funds for building materials and Aska’s Animals will fund the solar panel and construction labor costs. Construction will begin this Spring and the facility will be functionable by June. Requested funds will be used to purchase a portion of the construction materials.
The Teton Valley Animal Care Facility Pilot Project will allow the AAC to expand with reasonable and sustainable growth while becoming inclusive of another wonderful community and pursuing our life-saving mission.
