Animal Protection League thankful for support

Published: June 15, 2017 12:00 AM

On behalf of our awesome members and Board of Directors, the Carroll County Animal Protection League would like to thank the general public and Larry and Kay Garner for everyone's support of our three-day rummage sale held at Garner's Auction Barn, Carrollton, Ohio over the Memorial Day weekend.

We had a successful three-day rummage sale thanks to all of you who supported us, our many volunteer members who worked so hard to put it all together and for our awesome members who paid for all the expenses of this event!

As of June 2nd, 2017, we have currently resumed more construction with the installation of the cement work by Richmond Concrete of Carrolton at a cost of $46,755,50. The finishing steps of the interior drains by Smith Piping Co. of Carrollton is working closely with the cement contractor. Next steps will be the installation of the electrical wiring by Richardson Electric of Carrollton. Richardson Electric will be working with AEP (American Electric Power)-approximate cost of $8-10,000 for the installation of the new pole, transformer, and underground trench lines from the pole to the building. This will ensure the hook up of the three electric boxes. Richardson Electric will be working with us on the three phases of electrical installation and the total cost of the electrical work when finished will be $89,400.

Robert's Geothermal Heating and Venting Company of Wooster, Ohio is the contractor and will be installing the conduit inside the building to attach to the outside loops. This must all be done before the cement can be poured. The Geothermal system will cost us $149,800. All of this considered, we will continue in our efforts to raise the money for more construction of our no-kill animal shelter on our property, located at 4901 Canton Road NW, (St. Rt. 43) between Carrollton and Malvern, as we go along.

We will get done as much as we can as funding is procured. Bear with us as we strive to get more done and to keep going. We do not receive any funding from the county or the state or any national animal organizations but rely solely on our own efforts to keep raising the money to get our shelter finished and open. When this will happen depends on many factors. The most crucial is the monetary factor.

We have worked so hard to get to this stage of construction and will continue to do our best to keep going, and with the continued support of our members, the general public, grants, fundraisers, special events and other funding resources, we will continue in our efforts to finish the interior and more as the money is raised to provide an asset to the community of our no-kill animal shelter for Carroll County, Carrollton.

We thank you for your belief in us and for your continued support one and all.

Eileen Rohrer,

CCAPL President
