New Flooring Fundraiser

As many of you know, ever since we purchased our current facility in 2012, we’ve been chipping away at necessary building updates and improvements for safety, long term cost savings, and in general, to be able to best utilize the space for our needs. Back in 2015 we were able to put in new flooring in the front reception area and the back offices, but put a hold on updating the flooring in other areas, such as the main cat area (“Whisker City”), the other cat rooms, meet and greet rooms, utility rooms, and back hallways. Unfortunately, the time has now come to tackle the worn out flooring in those areas as well due to safety concerns and in order to help us maintain our high standard of sanitation for the animals.

We are aiming to start installing the new flooring in the last week of February. But first, WE NEED HELP! It is our goal to raise $25k to cover the entire cost of this project in the next month. Please help us fund this much needed building improvement with a tax deductible donation to ICHS- every little bit helps!
