DAY ONE: Cat Condo Building Project

DG is building a cat condo for Haven Humane with the support of the Home Depot Foundation.

Our much awaited building day has arrived! We talked to the boys about what it means to build with God -- that when we build on HIM, the rock, we can weather any storm.

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25

We jumped in the DG bus and headed to Haven Humane. Upon arriving, director Jim Lewis took the boys on a tour of the property. We got to see all the brand new kittens that were just born & ready for adoption. 🐱

At the end of the tour, we went out clean up our job site and prepare for building. We cleared away the feral cat homes and found some animals like spiders, ants and even a snake! It was a bit disgusting, but it felt good to get rid of all that old stuff.

Then, we evened out the ground with our shovels and framed out the first two base pillars, and took a small intermission to watch Everett do a backflip.

Great job, team! 😃🎉 It was a great first day. Next week, we'll pick up where we left off, this time with some help from the Home Depot volunteers.


Meet our session heroes & sponsors:

Haven Humane Society | Since 1952, Haven Humane Society has been caring for lost, homeless and abused animals in the Redding area. Our founders recognized that city and county resources could not support our mission of providing shelter and humane care for all animals who come through our doors. Instead, these concerned citizens created a charitable non-profit organization that is privately funded by people who believe all our four legged friends deserve love and respect.

The Home Depot Foundation | The Home Depot Foundation works to improve the homes and lives of U.S. veterans, train skilled tradespeople to fill the labor gap and support communities impacted by natural disasters. Since 2011, the Foundation has invested more than $400M in veteran causes and improved more than 50,000 veteran homes and facilities. The Foundation has pledged to invest half of a billion dollars in veteran causes by 2025 and $50 million in training the next generation of skilled tradespeople through the Path to Pro program.
