The Top Notch Construction and Design crew is busy building the exterior shell of the shelter on 3.4 acres of property in the city’s business park.
Simultaneously, Rivers and Bluffs Animal Shelter embarked on a capital campaign Nov. 1, 2016 through Jan. 31, 2017, from which they hope to raise funds toward furnishing the interior of the facility.
“We need to raise another $400,000 for the interior of the building,” said Cheryl Statz, RABAS president.
“We’ve always felt, once people see it built, they’ll believe. We’re hoping this will bring in donations a lot faster (than the past nine years),” added RABAS Vice President Bev Pozega. “We’ve had a lot of fundraisers to get this far—it’s been a lot of cookies, poker runs, shoe drives and generous donations.”
Rivers and Bluffs is thankful for the donors to the capital campaign thus far.
