Lancaster, CA—The Department of Animal Care and Control’s (DACC) volunteers from the Lancaster and Agoura Hills animal shelters will come together on what is known as “Big Sunday,” the largest community service event in the country. On Sunday, May 3, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. volunteers will team up to give the Lancaster shelter a make-over.
Over 100 volunteers have signed up to be a part of the community project. Lancaster and Agoura volunteers have also taken the initiative to raise money by organizing fundraising events (such as garage sales) to help contribute towards some of the needed items.
Some of the planned projects include:
· Revamping the spay and neuter clinic from top to bottom
· Painting an art mural
· Landscaping projects
· Repairing the roof
· Putting up wind screens
· Renovating current dog run
· Adding mister systems in the kennels for the hot weather
· Repairing and expanding the play yard
These projects are also intended to directly benefit the animals of the Lancaster shelter by providing a more comfortable, temporary home, making their stay as enjoyable as possible.
