With this project, the Anatomic Iron Cares program provided some much needed love and attention to our local four legged friends at a local animal shelter.
The Homeless Animal Krakow Society Shelter, was established in 1994 by the city and is managed by Mr. Szymon Ziemka. This is a large shelter, housing over 450 dogs and 150 cats which all need care and attention. The facility is maintained by funds from the city as well as private sponsors and public fund raising, but upkeep of a large facility like this is a challenge so we decided to help out.
The primary need of the shelter was maintenance of the kennels and fences. The metal kennels as well as the fences between the dog runs were old and rusty as they had not been painted in over 5 years. As a result, we moved all the animals to another area of the shelter, and then wire brushed the rust from the kennels and fences and prepared the metal for painting. After masking off the non-paint areas we then applied a new thick coat of anti rust paint to all surfaces. Our five person strong team worked the day to complete this fairly large project and we are proud of our accomplishment.
The animals now have a renovated kennel to live in, and it is also cleaner for the employees of the center. You sometimes hear unfortunate stories about helpless or abandoned animals so we were very happy to do our small part to help these animals live as comfortably as possible.
