Help us “Raise the Woof” on our remodeled Doggie Kennels

Pardon our Dust, but we’re doing some remodeling at the San Clemente – Dana Point Animal Shelter.

This $375,000 project, which broke ground in January 2023, includes replacement of all the old kennels with brand new, stainless steel versions designed to keep dogs safe and comfortable. New flooring, dry wall repairs and painting are also included in the project.
