"Bigger, brighter, quieter and more flexible, the 370 square foot expansion features new double-sided kennels in an acoustically damped space."
"Replacing dilapidated ‘70s-era cyclone-fenced kennels, the new space is designed to reduce stress and maximize health for dogs awaiting adoption at the shelter. It features offset entrances so dogs don’t have to see one other, acoustic panels to lessen barking noise, varied kennel sizes to accommodate larger dogs or multiples sharing space, and an inviting area to welcome prospective adopters."
"Funded in part by generous gifts from the Champlin Foundations, the Rhode Island Foundation, and the Carter Family Charitable Trust, this new space will be a comfortable and reduced-stress home for the hundreds of dogs PARL cares for each year."
Executive director Kara Larson said, “It’s very exciting for us to end 2016 with such a wonderful new space opening. It’ll make the holidays a little better for our dogs this year.”
Having taken a tour of the new center, we have a suggestion. PARL currently houses a number of appealing residents. Why not make the holidays even better for one of them: Drop by, put the new adoption area to the test... take home a pup!
