DuPage County Animal Care & Control is fortunate to be the beneficiary of Eagle Scout projects this fall. In recent days, Eagle Scout hopeful Simon and his hardworking team of family and friends have been tackling an outdoor dog pen renovation project.
Simon’s project involves creating two new catch pens that will enable staff and volunteers to transition the shelter dogs to the main dog pen area more safely. Also, with the catch pens as a barrier, dogs are able to sniff each other first to scope out if they will interact in a friendly way.
Additionally, Simon and his team relocated and reinstalled a wooden fence, providing new posts and increasing the footprint of the center pen for greater playspace area.
We are thrilled to share with you that Simon is also making a substantial contribution to the new dog park agility equipment by donating proceeds from his fundraiser!
A big THANK YOU to Simon and his team for making outdoor dog pens better for our community's homeless animals. Please enjoy this slide show gallery of Simon's Eagle Scout project.
