Senior Dogs’ Kennel Renovated

ARK is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
The number of kennels for the cats and dogs has been gradually increasing following repeated extensions…
ARK’s premises are becoming like a maze and there are aging kennels everywhere.

"That roof over there is leaking..."
"This fence post here is rotting and about to collapse..."
Simple repairs can’t fix most of the problems, so bigger repairs or replacements are required. The maintenance staff are so busy dealing with these things.

This senior dogs' kennel was still being used even though we were worried about the floor crumbling. But finally renovations started there the other day.
The resident dogs had to be moved to a temporary kennel to await completion of their home.

The room was completely reborn in about a week.
Will the senior dogs' quality of life be better now, and will their kennel be more comfortable for them?

These are the puppies in the evening.
After the daytime schedule has ended, the ARK dogs go to sleep.
The days are getting longer and it's still light even in the evening, so I was able to get this photo.
Quietly I take the picture, trying not to wake them...


The cold is easing and some dogs lie sprawled outside the kennels.

The ones who have been sick, Perrier and Cider, are better now!

Let's be patient until your "own family" comes to pick you up. You can go for walks with the staff members or volunteers, play and have sibling quarrels until then!



Postscript on June 1 (Tue)

Cider has found a new family!
Perrier, we wish you luck finding a family too!
