How exciting is this! Wow! Yippee!
Therefore, our "Ground Breaking Ceremony" will be held on Sunday, May 31st, at 1:30 p.m. on our land, so bring your puppy dogs, family, friends, shovels and lawn chairs to celebrate this huge event for us! Rain or shine!
We could not have reached this milestone without all your generosity of donations, volunteerism, support and of course your commitment to us to get this far in reaching our goal- the beginning construction of the no-kill animal shelter building!
Hope to see you at the "Ground Breaking!"
And please have "Fido-dog" on a leash for safety reasons!

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.
