DOG HOUSES

Orville Swanson moved to Murray several years ago with his wife Dorothy and brought their love of animals with them. Orville kept dogs all his life and even dog sits for neighbors when needed. They decided to build a dog house and donate it to the Humane Society's Animal Assistance Program in 2005. Orville build an even bigger house in 2006 and donated it too. The 2007 house was custom painted by Sara Gutwirth from the Art Department at Murray State University and her husband Peter. Mr. Swanson's quality work and generosity make it possible for the Humane Society to help more animals by selling or raffling the doghouses and buying several more houses for dogs in distress. An example of how the Animal Assistance Program works is represented by the photographs titled "doghouses 1, 2 & 3." The Society provides properly sized plastic (seen in the photos)or wooden houses for the affected dog along with bedding material. The two dilapitated houses shown (one made of chicken wire), were replaced in the month of January. Mr. Swanson's generosity and love of animals gives dogs a warm and dry place to retreat to when the weather turns bad. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Swanson!
