Letter to the Editor:
On behalf of our members and Board of Directors, we want to thank the general public and Larry and Kay Garner for everyone’s support of our 3-day rummage sale held at Garner’s Auction Barn over the Memorial Day weekend. We had a very successful three-day rummage sale thanks to all of you who supported us, our many volunteer members who worked so hard to put it all together and for our awesome members who paid for all the expenses of this event!

We are awaiting the architectural, structural, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC designs to be done by Morton Buildings, Inc. and submitted to the state of Ohio for approval, which will take approximately 4-6 months. Once the designs are all approved, we will start construction of our no-kill animal shelter on our property, located at 4901 Canton Rd. NW, (St. Rt. 43) between Carrollton and Malvern.

By the CCAPL’s Board of Directors unanimous vote, we are going to start with the “shell” of the animal shelter building which consists of the outer walls, roof, exterior doors and windows, plus the insulation throughout. This will cost us $129,500.00 to put up the shell by Morton Buildings, Inc. of Wooster.

We have saved enough of the money generated over the last seven years and four months since we started, to do the start-up construction, and with the continued support of our members, the general public, grants, and other funding resources, we will continue in our efforts to finish the interior as the money is raised to provide a no-kill animal shelter for Carroll County.

We thank you for your belief in us and for your continued support one and all!

Eileen Rohrer
CCAPL President
Carrollton, OH
