Dog-Harmony Inc. is about to break ground on its new building on Bay Grove Avenue near the U.S. Highway 331 bridge in Freeport. A grand opening is expected by April.
The organization’s new home will be a center for dogs waiting for THEIR new home, plus provide dog training, humane education and links to low-cost spay/neuter surgeries and microchipping.
The 5,600-square-foot space will include:
*Classrooms for humane education, such as positive dog training versus using prong/choke collars, and teaching children how to be safe around dogs.
*Retail to pay for operating expenses, such as high-end donated furniture and décor; clothing with the artsy Dog-Harmony logo; plus leashes, collars, natural flea prevention spray and other canine accessories.
*Two stainless-steel tubs for beach visitors to wash sand off their dogs.
*An area for doggie socials and parties.
Please help us help man’s/woman’s best friend.
Dog-Harmony is in the midst of a capital campaign, called “A New Leash on Life II,” to help pay for final opening expenses.
Our wish list includes:
*Money donations: One-time or recurring monthly gifts.
*Building materials: Roll-up windows and doors, plus plumbing, air conditioning and kitchen equipment.
*Plumbers and air conditioning technicians to install the systems.
