HPAN Purchases Whelping Kennel for Shelter Dogs
There have been several pregnant dogs brought to the Oak Ridge Animal Shelter this summer. A shelter is no place for puppies, as they are susceptible to disease. There was a huge need for a whelping kennel for pregnant dogs to use until puppies are weaned and can be returned to the shelter. HPAN offered to purchase this kennel that can be used time and time again. Brownie is the first “house guest.” She and her eleven puppies (pictured are four of them) are resting comfortably in the new kennel.
