Official Press Release on the Kennels:

The New Kennels at the Penn Hills Municipal Building will Have Tails Wagging

Penn Hills, Pennsylvania, August 13, 2019 - The Penn Hills Council is happy to announce the addition of three new kennels to be used by Penn Hills Police for the short-term holding of stray dogs. These kennels were made possible by the fundraising efforts of a Penn Hills local animal advocacy group, PAWSitive Voice.

PAWSitive Voice started the fundraiser which was called "Help the Lost Dogs of Penn Hills" in mid-April, and in total the group raised $3,500 with the help of charitable donations from Penn Hills residents to replace the old kennels with ones that were more sterile and safer. With the money that was raised by the community, the group was able to purchase two new indoor kennels a large outdoor kennel, and a number of supplies to help with the maintenance and care of the kennels and dogs.

"Lost or abandoned dogs that are picked up by police are often in a vulnerable state, and after getting a tour of the old kennels, we realized that with some funding, and community support, we could help give these dogs a more comfortable and safe space," said Brittney Norris, Founder of PAWSitive Voice. "The old outdoor kennel was sitting on asphalt with no shade in the hot summer months and the indoor kennels were not very sturdy. We wanted to source professional-grade kennels to help with not only the safety of the dogs but also of the officers.

The new indoor kennels are comprised of powder-coated steel and feature auto-locking doors and drop-through floors to keep dogs clean in case they have an accident in the cage. The outdoor kennel features more running space with a large doghouse, cot, sanitary floor, eco-friendly in-ground septic system and a heavy-duty canvas roof and sides to help give shade or warmth as the seasons change.

“I want to thank Brittney Norris and PAWSitive Voice for their efforts in fundraising the money and purchasing these new kennels,” said Penn Hills Councilmen John Petrucci. “To many people, dogs are like their children and they deserve to be treated humanely while in our care. We want to make sure all dogs picked up are safe and secure, and these kennels are a great addition to help make that happen for our community”

In addition to the kennels, new efforts will be made by Police to capture photos of dogs before they are taken by animal control. PAWSitive Voice will then utilize these photos on social media to help advocate for finding owners or to encourage residents to adopt dogs that have been abandoned.

There will be an official ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the new kennels this Friday, August 16th, 2019 at 2 pm at the Penn Hills Municipal building. The location will be at the new outdoor kennel, which is behind the EMS building. The media and residents are invited to attend.
