Rescue Rebuild Domestic Violence Shelter Renovation Application


  • Rescue Rebuild is a shelter renovation program that strives to provide pet-friendly housing options for at-risk people requiring either temporary emergency or long-term transitional housing with their furry family member. We travel to selected shelters and spend one to two weeks working to complete general repairs and renovations. Whether you already have a pet program up and running and need expansions or you are ready to give it a go from scratch, we are here to help.

    Below is a list of some of the projects our team can complete, but we can do much more!

    • Outdoor Exercise Pens (typically 25’ x 25’ or larger)
    • Renovate existing client room to be pet friendly
    • Add pet door to existing client room and install pet relief area
    • Space for clients to hang out with their pets
