"Help us Build it!"
Welcome members, visitors and friends to our website!
Our Logo was designed by: Ashley Libertor (Carrollton High School Student-2007)
We try to update our website on a weekly basis to inform our members, visitors and friends.
The Carroll County Animal Protection League is reaching out to the general populous nationwide in hopes of receiving donations for our no-kill animal shelter construction. We want keep going as soon as possible to make this goal a reality and help save lives of domestic animals. To make a donation in any amount, go to:
and help us raise the much needed funds to build our shelter!
Gofundme.com does take 9.25% of any donations. You can use your credit card to make a donation. THANK YOU!
If you want to see our no-kill animal shelter finished, here is what we need as we know it at the present time- January 2018.
As we get bids for various stages of interior construction, we will update you. Our no-kill shelter is in need of donations at the present time which will take many dollars to complete. It takes a lot of money to finish our shelter and then run it. So, therefore, send in your donations in any amount, and it will go towards our shelter construction needs! We cannot do this overnight, and it could be as long as 2 or 3 more years before completion, depending on funding as it comes in.
We must have electric, heating and cooling, walls, doors, glass windows inside to observe animals, cement, plumbing, toilets, sinks, water, sewer, lights, flooring, kennels finished, chain link fencing, security video, phones, intercom, and so much more.
Yes, we are applying for grants to help with expenses as we do construction, but your donations would help us even more to get closer to our goal- finish our no-kill animal shelter and them operate it to save lives!
2018 Update: Richardson Electric is still working on Phase II. We have selected a drywall contractor to drywall all the rooms in the main areas. The drywall will be installed around the first of May, 2018.
We are also getting bids on the foyer work and the dropped ceiling throughout the main rooms. April 2018 Update: The Geothermal system venting and duct work is being installed throughout the shelter which has to be done next. (This is necessary to protect the drywall once it is installed and maintained in the winter at 50 degrees.) Once the drywall is installed, then the suspended ceiling and grid work can be done. Richardson Electric can continue with installing plate covers, lights, and more. Moving along, slowly but surely.

It will take at least 6-8 weeks for Morton's to put together our order of the building for delivery. Shawn told us the construction of the animal shelter building-shell will be done either mid-June or around the first part of July! We will know very soon of the delivery date and will post the update ASAP!

May-2014 The CCAPL Board of Directors called a special meeting after the regular meeting Thursday, May 1st, to vote on moving forward with Morton's Buildings, Inc. By a unanimous vote of all seven Board of Directors present, the motion was made by Vice-President Lorna Whaley and seconded by Barbara Manning to send to Morton Buildings, Inc. the cost of Step 2 for $22,500.00 down payment to authorized them to finalize the Architectural, Structural, Electrical, Plumbing and HV/AC designs and obtaining the permits, based on the Conceptual Plan completed under Step 1 as noted and approved by the CCAPL Board of Directors. Patti Willoughby, our Treasurer, sent them a check along with the signed contract by our President. (Our attorney, Kathleen Stoneman has reviewed and approved the Morton Buildings, Inc. contract.)
Shawn Simmerman, the Morton Buildings, Inc. representative, was notified Thursday evening regarding the vote to move forward. Shawn advised the Board of Directors at the April 24th, director's meeting, it will take approximately 4-6 months before actual start-up construction could take place. That is okay, we have worked so hard in the last seven years and almost four months to get to this stage.
Once Step 2 is completed, Shawn will handle Step 3, the actual start of construction of our no-kill animal shelter. We will send Morton Buildings, Inc. a check for $129,500.00 to pay the cost of the "shell" of the building. This will include the exterior walls, roof, windows, exterior doors, and also the insulation throughout.
