Progress update on Bear’s Den

Operation Kindness Blog - Progress update on Bear's Den | North Texas No-Kill Animal Shelter

We’re excited to share new behind-the-scenes footage of the progress on Bear’s Den — our housing for large dogs! Watch the video now. 

Bear’s Den is the second phase of our capital campaign to renovate and expand our shelter to help more homeless animals in North Texas. This particular part of the facility is designed specifically for large breed dogs.

Features of Bear’s Den include:

  • Expanded indoor/outdoor kennels for dogs with more space
  • New kennel set up allows dogs access to the outdoors and fresh air whenever they’d like (during the day)
  • Kennels for up to 42 large dogs at one time
  • Enhanced soundproofing to reduce noise and stress
  • A separate “zen den” for dogs who are anxious or fearful
  • Additional laundry facilities for clean beds and blankets
  • Additional kitchen facilities to prepare animal meals

We expect Bear’s Den will be completed by the end of May 2020.
