You are going to love this! We at DuPage Animal Friends have been working with DCACC staff on a meaningful fundraising goal for the Fall Festival Pet Expo & Open House on September 17th.
The outdoor dog pens at the animal shelter have been in desperate need of work. Now that the shelter's indoor renovation is completed, attention can be focused outside. Luckily for the animals, two fine young men, Simon and John, have selected DuPage County Animal Care & Control to be the recipient of their Eagle Scout projects!
We will have more information soon to show you the exciting progress of the Eagle Scout projects, but here's what's happening in a nutshell:
Everyone is so excited about the two Eagle Scout projects! What an improvement John and Simon will make to DCACC and the dogs in their care!
This year, DCACC has placed a major emphasis on providing activities that help keep the animals' bodies and minds busy. Enrichment is critical for the animals' health and well-being and promotes successful transitions to new families.
To assist with the dog pen renovations and to help promote DCACC's initiatives, we want to provide more enrichment for the dogs during their stay at the shelter.
DCACC staff and DuPage Animal Friends have selected eco-friendly dog park equipment to be the fundraising goal for the Fall Festival.
The two large pieces of play equipment for the dog pens includes the Up & Over Dog Bridge and the Kennel Club Playground. These structures are made of heavy duty recycled plastic and textured, non-slip surfaces to aid in traction. The equipment will never rust, splinter, rot, corrode or require repainting!
Our ability to accomplish this fundraising goal relies on the generosity of individuals in the community. If you would like to help support enrichment for dogs in the care of DCACC, please donate today. Please also come out for lots of family fun and more opportunities to support the animals at the Fall Festival on September 17th at 120 N. County Farm Road in Wheaton. Thank you for your support of the homeless animals in and around DuPage County!
