Hope After Hurricane Maria

Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico on September 20, 2017, and caused extensive damage to the entire island. Widespread power outages, food, and fuel shortages along with the already limited infrastructure on the island made for a slow recovery process. Rescue Rebuild was eager to help the animals of Puerto Rico, so we visited shelters throughout the island looking for a place where our volunteers could make a huge impact.

Let the Dogs Stretch Their Legs!

Jersey City in December sounds like a fabulous idea, right? The good news is that the Rescue Rebuild team prepared for the worst weather possible. We bought body warmers and hand warmers, and luckily the weather was more tolerable than anticipated.

400 Volunteers Helping Animals

There is a new idea that many dog parks are embracing, and we were able to make that happen at Christopher Columbus Park. While the existing dog park had a large dog and a small dog area, there is a substantial benefit to also having a space for lower energy dogs so that they don’t get overly anxious by the more rambunctious bunch. With it being such a sizeable park, we were able to divide the large dog park to then create this low energy section for the more old-timers and mellow fellows. Having so many volunteers, we were able to gravel the whole park to not only make it look nicer, but also make it more accessible when muddy and more manageable for the city to maintain. We also had time to build two new shade pavilions in the areas lacking shade and touched up the paint on the ones we built the year before. Making sure that all sections of the dog park have access to water, owners are now able to bring their dog to the park and have them com

Calling All Cat People!

The cats are probably most excited about their new door which leads outside. With a catio attached, they can go out in their screen-in area and feel the breeze, see the sun and watch all the birds and insects flying around nearby. Since Spring 2017, the shelter has found furever homes for 16 cats. Now that they have a proper catio and cat room, their cats will become more adoption ready at a faster pace, thus increasing their adoption numbers!

Seniors Need Furever Homes Too

Before grabbing our paint brushes and rollers, we pressure washed the entire building, the pergola and the fence. And wow was that super gratifying…it suddenly looked brand new as the pressure washing turns it back to the wood color! We then water sealed the fence and pergola to make the wood look nicer and help keep it from greying and rotting in the future. Before it was time to get painting, we patched up the holes in the soffit which were due to previous roofing damage. This was important for not only the look appeal but also to keep out insects and birds.

Let the Cats Play!

But we didn’t stop there! Next we constructed two new “Catios” (outdoor cat enclosures) outside so that the cats would have free roam of the outside. The fresh air means less respiratory issues and happier, healthier cats! After the catios, we focused on others projects outside such as a play yard for dogs, privacy fencing, grading to keep
