Florida Keys SPCA; The “Key” to Rebuilding

Their shelter was once home to several, mature trees providing shade to the play yards and outdoor kennels filled their back property. However, once Hurricane Irma blew through they were left with all of their shade trees completely uprooted and their kennels, play yards and perimeter fencing all destroyed by these uprooted trees. Without even as much as a perimeter fence, they couldn’t utilize any of their space and dogs couldn’t get outside to release their energy. This may not seem like a big deal, however, if a dog isn’t able to go outside to release their energy, they will become loud and overactive inside their kennels and less likely to be adopted.
