Good year

Langley Animal Protection Society looks back on ’09.

“This time last year, we were still in the old building and our water froze,” Baker recalled. For a week, volunteers and staff were lugging water from a house on the property, around the construction site, and into the dilapidated and rat-infested 2,000-square-foot old shelter facility – kept operational with a makeshift or bandage approach.

In stark contrast, the new building houses 28 kennels, three cat isolation rooms, visiting rooms, dedicated food preparation, state-of-the-art grooming space, offices, as well as drive-in bay for loading and unloading pets. “I think for the animals in Langley, it will make a big difference,” Baker said, noting the old structure was finally demolished this fall, making room for exercise and training yards for the dogs.

“It was exciting,” he said of 2009. “Our dream for the last six years, even before LAPS opened its first shelter there, was a dream of a bigger state-of-the-art shelter.” A big investment of time, and of course money, has paid off, Baker said, looking admiringly at the new facilities.
