– Non-Profit Animal Shelter in Detroit Receives Much-Needed Head to Tail Makeover –
(Los Angeles, CA – November 18, 2016) – In the second installment of Animal Planet’s two-part special, PET NATION RENOVATION, the Michigan Animal Rescue League (MARL) in Pontiac gets a massive makeover on Friday, December 2nd at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
In an effort to find millions of homeless animals their forever homes, shelters and rescues across the country often operate on minimal funds – leaving their facilities in desperate need of repairs. In PET NATION RENOVATION, two shelters are transformed to give the animals a more comfortable stay while awaiting their new family.
Hosted by animal expert and home renovation enthusiast Dave Salmoni, and featuring the animal shelter renovation experts from Project Pawsitive, the PET NATION RENOVATION team completely transforms two shelters – MARL and Bandit’s Adoption and Rescue of K-9s (BARK) in Ashland, Virginia.
Working out of a 63-year-old building, MARL received state-of-the art indoor and outdoor kennels, a living room-style meet and greet area to put the dogs at ease and a special cat apartment that will allow the felines to be entertained and work out their energy.
The makeover was made possible by Quicken Loans, Ace Hardware and Delta Faucet, sponsors of the special who provided more than $100,000 for the renovation through fiscal, product and labor donations.
