Benefactors

Initial funding to establish Project POOCH, Inc.® and build a fenced training area came from private grants and Jean Vollum.

The construction and remodeling of the K-9 building was done by Building Trades students under the direction of their instructor, Fred Mitchell. Additional kennels funded by the family of the late Fred "Fritz" Hayes, Jr.

Project POOCH has been the beneficiary of four heated dog runs funded by Frank and Julie Jungers, an Education Center funded by the Englehard Foundation, and an Agility Center funded by the Karen Schroth Foundation.
