We have made significant progress in getting the building ready!  We are currently taking a limited number of grooming clients through the rest of the week. We plan to fully open for all boarding and a full grooming schedule on Monday, September 10th.

We were hoping to open sooner, but we continue to lose power and phone lines, and we still do not have Internet service to the building (all of our software is web based).  We feel the safest way to move forward is to wait until we are sure the construction is complete and we have restored power, phones and Internet.  Thank you to everyone for your patience during this trying time.

Isaac update 9/3/12

by admin | September 3rd, 2012

What a crazy couple of days!  We have been very busy making sure that all our client dogs got home after evacuation and taking care/finding foster homes for our rescues.  Here is a quick update on our progress.

Our contractor and drying team have been making amazing progress on the building.  We have a new facade and all the demo work on the inside of the building is complete.  We expect the dehumidifiers to be out tomorrow and for the new ceiling to be installed.  The plaster work on the facade will also begin tomorrow!  The ZP staff will begin cleaning the building tomorrow and getting the building ready for pets.  We hope to be open in a couple of weeks.

I want to personally thank everyone who has fostered one of our adoptables or offered to help us with the building.  I am overwhelmed with your generosity and hope to be able to repay your kindness soon.

Much love to Kim Dudek of Belladoggie and Dag’s house for providing me support.  Without her, I could not have gotten through this last week.

Many thanks to Dedire Wing of Canine Connection for offering to house our rescues while we rebuild.  I know Jiggy and Roscoe are having a blast on Tchoupitoulas!

Keep checking back for updates on our reopening.  I am hoping it is sooner than expected.  I miss seeing you and your pets!

Michelle has checked out the building, and there is extensive water damage. We have contractors lined up to get the problems fixed; however, for the time being, we are unable to house pets. We will provide a re-opening date as soon as we have one. We would like to thank everyone again for your support, and look forward to seeing all of our returning customers soon!!

We will provide another update later today. We will also be posting an album of our current rescues; with the damage to the building, we will be looking for fosters and permanent homes for them ASAP. Thank you to everyone for your support!!
