Kal’s RePlay Fund Helps Mould Healthy Habits for Hounds

The demand for adopting animals over the pandemic was unlike rescues have seen in the past; however, with people returning to work and being at home less, adoption rates are decreasing. A phenomenon known as Kennel Syndrome, where the mental health of animals in a shelter decline over long stays, causing stress and anxiety to climb. Due to a lack of resources, volunteers, and space, many shelters don’t have the means necessary to properly exercise all the animals in their care. The Surrey Animal Training Centre saw the need and responded by upgrading their outdoor facility to accommodate more outdoor play.

Sustainable, Safe, and Stimulating

Kal’s RePlay Fund was used to help the animal centre achieve its dream of installing the Enchanted Forest training and play features in their yard. Softline Solutions was the eco-friendly supplier that provided these moulded recycled rubber products. This project used 3,300 pounds of rubber to create the log moulds — that is approximately 215 recycled tires.
