Our Summer Wish List

Nova LOVES rolling around in the grass!

Nova LOVES rolling around in the grass!

We’re working hard to keep our dogs cool during the hot weather.   Tarps, lattice panels, rubber hoses and floor fans are just a few of the items needed to help keep them comfortable this summer.  Below is a more complete list of what we will need during the summer months.  Our woofers say ‘thank you’!


WHITE VINYL LATTICE PANELS:  4′ x 8′, available at Lowes or Fluvanna Ace Hardware.  We need more of these as we use them for shade for our dogs.

TARPS:  8′ x 10′  and 6′ x 8′

BUNGEE CORDS:  18″ and 24″

FLOOR FANS: We could use about 5 more of these. 

WATER PAILS:  The water buckets we use in our indoor dog kennels have really seen better days.  We need 8 Quart round back buckets that are often used for horses.  They are sturdy and not as easily dumped and can withstand some chewing from our more energetic canines.  Available at Southern States, Dover Saddlery, and similar retailers.  

KIDDIE POOLSSmall and Medium sizes

KURANDA BEDS:   Standard and  Large sizes are needed.  Use this link and 10% of your purchase will be donated to Caring For Creatures:  http://kuranda.com/dogbeds?partner=9214 

RUBBER HOSES:  25′ or 50′ – 3/4 size – we prefer the non-kinking variety.  We could use 2 or 3 more.

KONGS:  Large and extra large – the red ones are best as they are the sturdiest and can withstand repeated chewing.  Our dogs enjoy frozen treats in their Kongs during the summer months.
