If you missed last months newsletter…

On December 30th, 2021, White Whiskers officially closed on our new property. Located on Nash Road in Wheatfield, we still need to procure our Special Use Permit in February. But it appears the wonderful folks at our new town hall are backing us, and THEY ALL LOVE DOGS!

Our house sits on 5.1 acres of farmland and was built in 1830. It needs a lot of work, and will be used for meetings and get-togethers. The sanctuary must be built separately as the land around the house is zoned for multiple animals whereas the house is only zoned for 6.

We need to raise at least $250,000, and we are working on many ways to do this including working with professional capital campaign coordinators (doing this for free!) and a splendid, brilliant architect, Dave Sutton, who is also pro bono!!

The Betty White Challenge brought in more than $20,000 which will all go toward the property!

As soon as we have the permit, we will have an open house weekend to which all of you will be invited to come and see our plans.

Stay tuned for more  information!
