Bay Village accepts $50,000 kennel donation

On Monday, Dec. 4, Bay Village City Council approved a resolution and was signed by Council President Dwight Clark to accept $50,000 from The New Bay Village Dog Kennel Fund. 

Following the resolution, a discussion was had regarding “next steps” which will include specific improvement action plans and identifying internal and external labor needs to complete the project. 

Although the timing of the work that will result in a safe and updated kennel is still not certain, early spring completion was discussed as a realistic expectation.

So many people and organizations contributed to the success of our fundraising efforts. Our thanks to everyone that put money into local businesses' donation jars, online contributions, participated in money-making events throughout the summer and fall and to donors that made substantial contributions from their personal foundations. 

Some highlights of the diversity in our fundraising and participants include a sizable grant from The Bay Village Foundation, the creativity of the Bay High School Advanced Digital Media Class in developing our major marketing tools, the Westerly K-Kids Club for their hard work in raising over $1,200, to the BAYarts team for highlighting the Bark In The Park event which gave us productive fundraising exposure.

Also two businesses that donated a brand-new window (Chernisky Designs) and door awning (Ohio Awning) to the remodel effort. 

So many donors, so much financial support. Great appreciation to our Bay Village citizens in supporting the efforts to be proud of our kennel and provide a safe and comfortable place for lost and displaced dogs.
