Roof Over Rover

Since the summer of 2005, Animal Services has offered its “Roof Over Rover” program.  Using donated dog houses, the shelter provides dog houses to low-income households in need of shelter for their pets.

If you would like to participate, please bring your gently-used MEDIUM or LARGE dog house to the shelter at 3120 Martin Way, Olympia, WA.

If you would like to make a medium or large dog house to donate, that would be wonderful!  Below are websites with information and plans on designing and building dog houses. Warning: Do not use pressure treated wood anywhere a dog can chew, as it is poisonous to dogs!
