“Right now we have stained and sealed the floor,” she said.

Future plans also include adding a window AC unit, turning part of the loft as a play area for the cats and the other part for storage. To help with the projects in mind, Snyder hopes to get the help of a handyman for the projects.

The shed is 10-by-16 feet and was provided by Premier Portable Buildings in Wickenburg “at a good price” and delivered it to the shelter. WAHS is open to suggestions regarding what can be done with the space.

“It’s a one try deal to make it perfect to showcase our kitties,” Snyder said.

WAHS also has pets up for adoption due to being “extremely full.”

The cost to adopt is $45 for adult cats, $65 for kittens, and $95 for dogs. They have some special needs cats, a bunny and a parquet.

The following animals were available at press time but could have been adopted since then.

Some of the dogs that are up for adoption include Winnie, a 1-year-old female Rottweiler with a tan and black coat, and Brandi, a 7-year-old female Rottweiler.

Two of the cats available are Yoda and Jewel, and both are sponsored cats. Yoda is a 12-year-old male that was given up by his owner and loves to be petted. Jewel is a 3-year-old female that is a bit sassy but loving.
