We can all say 2020 has been like none before for us. With no one traveling much, our boarding numbers have been very low. So, we took advantage of that to take on a lot of new renovations! We have replaced the outside roof with a larger one, added insulation, new siding and new kennel doors. Inside, we had a new poured epoxy floor installed, had the concrete walls ground smooth and given an epoxy coating. We have new, state of the art runs from Mason Fence Company. The old chainlink runs are gone and replaced by gorgeous suites made of stainless steel, calming colored FRP panels and tempered glass doors. New calming paint on all the walls. We also totally renovated our kennel office with new windows allowing AC to be installed in our cat room as well. You will also notice when you are here that we have had a lot of work done on our private road as well as our driveway and parking area. Add in some new landscaping and things are looking good!
2019-2020 brought a lot of changes to Ripanco Kennels. One very welcome change was adding our wonderful big blue 2020 Ford AWS Transit Cargo Van! While we were sad to see the last of the Astro Vans go, this new van is extra roomy while still being able to handle our mountain roads. It can hold more crates than either the Sienna or Astros by almost twice! And with the great lettering, it will be easy to find us at the Park and Ride!
