Help Save Our Shelter
Raise the Roof! $30,000 in 90 Days!
Bay Area Pet Adoptions is a non-profit, 501(c)3 No-Kill shelter, pet rescue, and adoption organization that relies on donations from the public to house, feed, and medically care for the dogs and cats taken in our adoption program. We are not operated or funded by any national animal group and must rely on contributions from people like you to keep our shelter open. All financial contributions and in-kind donations are tax deductible. Our shelter does not euthanize for space. Read more about us here.
As Galveston County’s only no-kill animal shelter, Bay Area Pet Adoption’s first responsibility is, of course, to provide shelter for homeless and abandoned animals. This means medical care, socialization with people, heathy diets, and physical shelter: clean, safe and dry places for our dogs and cats to live while they await adoption.
This summer we noticed that the roofs over the kennel dog run and the food storage building have deteriorated. Roofing materials have cracked and weathered; support structures have rotted and are beginning to collapse. A contractor was kind enough to provide a free inspection and cost estimate for replacing the roofs. He estimates that the roof may not be sound through the coming winter. The estimated minimum cost for total replacement with materials that will last for many years, along with other much-needed repairs such as new kennel doors, new windows for the puppy kennel, and repair of the failing foundation under the BDK building: $30,000 to $35,000.
We don’t have the money to complete repairs before winter. With your help, however, we can protect our dogs from the wet and cold weather that we know is coming.
That is why we are setting an ambitious goal: to raise $30,000 in 90 days. If we can meet this goal by the end of November, we will have just enough time to complete the work before the worst of winter arrives.
Donations to the campaign can be made by check, or by choosing the “Raise the Roof” donation option below or on our Donation page.
Make a donation toward the first $10,000 and your gift will be matched by another generous supporter of Bay Area Pet Adoptions!
Thank you for your support, and for all you do to help our animals!
