Thanks to the generosity of Playa Trading, Krioyo Paint, Duijn Bonaire N.V. and a hardworking crew of volunteers, the Bonaire Animal Shelter got a much needed “facelift” last month. Shelter Manager Marlies Tiepel and her assistant, Monique Degenaar, organized a “work party” during which they and 11 hardworking volunteers spent an entire Sunday repairing, painting and revitalizing many of the Shelter buildings. The result is a fresh, bright new look for many of the buildings and kennels that house the Shelter’s residents.
Please stop by the Shelter and see the new look and also check out the Shelter gift shop that is loaded with wonderful items for you and your pets.
Thanks to recent visits from Bonaire Talk supporters and a special delivery from one of the Shelter’s sponsors, Ingrid Beckers-Bezuijen and her friends, the gift shop is full of new items for both dogs and cats, including soft carriers for small dogs, finger puppet toys for cats, collars for cats and dogs, and much more, all at below retail cost. Also available are original painted driftwood signs with pet themes.
If you don’t have a pet, stop by anyway! Spend some time visiting with the residents or perhaps you might see a dog or cat that steals your heart and you can leave fully equipped with a new pet and all the necessary accessories!
