The DuPage County Animal Care & Control homeless cats are so fortunate! Over the weekend, Eagle Scout Cole built a beautiful catio (cat + patio = catio) for the shelter cat population on the animal shelter's campus in Wheaton. Cole designed the catio, raised funds for the materials, and solicited his friends and family to help him with the construction.
This structure promotes DCACC's animal enrichment initiative. Enrichment is critical for the animals' health and well-being and promotes successful transitions to new families. Thanks to Cole and his hardworking team for this wonderful gift.
Please enjoy the gallery of photos of the construction of Cole's catio!
