Shelter update

In late October, the Stray Hearts board announced that a generous private donation through Taos Community Foundation had provided funding for a new section roof on the main shelter building. "This section of roof has been repaired over and over again for many years but still rain and wind would pour into the cat isolation room," according to a statement from the shelter. "Happy cats are important to us all so this grant will pay for a permanent solution and reduce our energy bills. Collignon Roofing is working out in the cold to get this job done before winter comes. Thank you TCF and our donors who support us."

In addition, five greenhouse-type buildings called "pods" that were installed a few years ago to house the large number of animals had double layer of plastic sheeting inflated with a fan for insulation. "The roofs hadn't been replaced since they were first installed," according to a statement from the shelter. "With rips in the plastic, they could not be inflated anymore. Mike Petree, from Petree Nursery, is helping install new roofs on all of the pods, donating materials and labor, to keep our animals safe and protected from the weather. These new roofs will also help reduce our energy bills."
