As we began to explore our goals for the future, sadly, through no fault of PPK9A’s, we were put in a very in a very unfortunate situation and while working through it, our landlord decided to withdraw their letter for support of re-approval for our zoning and made the decision sell the building - which did not leave us in the position to stay or operate while working on a transition plan. The affect of these actions is far reaching into our community and very hurtful to so many families (humans and dogs), employees, and volunteers. We have therapy dogs that work actively in schools, camps, jails, nursing homes, healthcare, etc, in addition to our dogs that were in training and thus part of our popular socialization program. The abrupt actions of our landlord have made us unable to offer our programs aswe do not have a building to operate out of
Our Board of Directors and staff worked very hard to find alternate solutions so our families, dogs, and communities were able resume their participation and our staff can get back working with the pups and their humans within two and half months of being shut down! It's not our ideal set up, so we still have our eye on the future.
