The Field of Dreams to Become a Reality

Latest Project Updates

We’ve made a lot of progress and want to let you know what we’ve been up to. We don’t have an official date set for the ground-breaking yet so check back here for the latest project updates. Here is what we’ve accomplished since reaching our fundraising goal:

  • The Field of Dreams surpassed its $60,000 mid-December 2016 and has raised nearly $80,000 to date!
  • We are currently requesting multiple quotes for the project (per County policy) and working with our fellow County departments to select the most appropriate vendors for the job.
  • We are estimating that the project will take 3-4 weeks to complete once we "break ground."

Your Gift Matters

Your tax-deductible donation will help rebuild and maintain our play yards! A year-round play and socialization space will give our dogs a greater quality of life and increase their chances for adoption. This project includes a weatherized surface, K-9 grass, fencing and landscape repairs, irrigation, a group play area and an inviting new Meet and Greet area for potential adoptions!

Help us make this Field of Dreams a reality for those who need it the most by donating today!

Things We All Need to Thrive

field-of-dreams-dog-480.jpg

Food

SCAS feeds and cares for thousands of animals every year — over half of which are dogs.

Exercise

Dogs need to play in order to socialize, learn manners, feel good and stay happy and healthy. Play is essential to their emotional well-being. A healthy and relaxed dog has a much better chance at adoption.

Sunshine

On average, dogs will stay at SCAS almost 40 days. Some stay much longer. We make a point of giving our animals regular access to the outdoors.

Love

SCAS is the largest animal shelter in Sonoma County. Our staff and volunteers go out of their way to ensure animals who arrive at our shelter feel safe, happy and loved. A large suitable space for our dogs to run around will help make this easier.

Current Conditions

field-of-dreams-current-480.jpg

The project will refurbish dog play yards, including:

  • new dog-friendly bark surfacing
  • fence repairs
  • K-9 grass
  • landscaping and irrigation
  • a new, welcoming Meet and Greet area where dogs can be their true adoptable selves.

Our Plan

field-of-dreams-plan-480.jpg

red-paw.jpgThis new Meet and Greet area will be outside, under the canopy of two large redwoods. It will be a much calmer and more pleasant experience for potential adopters.

blue-paw.jpgThe current outdoor yard is not adaptable to weather conditions. In summer weather the gravel is hot and unpleasant for dogs and volunteers, while wet weather brings the mud. The plan calls for Woof Fiber, a bark that is functional year-round.

yellow-paw.jpgThe current yards are dog-tired. Field of Dreams will not only benefit the dogs, but also be appreciated by the dedicated staff and volunteers.

green-paw.jpgThe new yards are designed to accommodate group play. Shelter studies consistently show that play groups increase canine health, emotional well-being and adoptability.
