Improving a hangout spot for dogs. Volunteers at the Jefferson County SPCA are renovating its outdoor play area.
This includes laying down pea gravel over the dirt and grass and adding canopies by the building for shade.
SPCA Executive Director Heather Spezzano says the improvements will make the fenced-in area safer for the animals - and hopefully more entertaining.
"We've applied for some grants and hopefully we'll get some agility equipment in here so it gives the dogs something to do. Daily we bring the dogs out and this is where they get their exercise," she said.
Spezzano says she hopes to finish the project by the end of next week.
