Boy Scout builds new digs for Pontiac dogs

Of The Oakland Press
PONTIAC — When Jacq, a 5-year-old pit bull terrier, received a new, insulated doghouse with his name on it, he jumped around in excitement before going right inside.
“They’re awesome,” said Jacq’s owner, Debra Wilson, of the Animal Care Network volunteers who delivered the doghouse on Saturday. “I thank god for them.”
Inside Wilson’s home near Baldwin School Park, Christmas stockings hang over the fireplace for Jacq and Kodee, her 3 pound teacup chihuahua.
The Animal Care Network has helped out with food and vaccinations for Wilson’s dogs, she said.
“If I take too long to call them, they call me and ask if I need anything,” Wilson said.
Jacq’s new doghouse was built by Jacob Thoma, 15, as a project for Boy Scout Troop 326, based at St. Patrick’s Parish in White Lake Township.
The West Bloomfield teen said he built the doghouses as his Eagle Scout project after finding out that Animal Care Network needed them.
“We had a great, great day,” said Pam Porteous, who has volunteered with Animal Care Network since its inception in 1994. “It went very well.”
The volunteers delivered a total of five doghouses in Pontiac on Saturday.

This is a poem written from the heart by Animal Care Network Manager Pam and also through ACN volunteers eyes.
This is a very difficult, sad thing to witness. Unfortunately we are witness to it each day and it breaks our hearts!!! ACN does all that we can to rescue, educate, assist and make their lives better and more comfortable, if even for a moment. Even if our only option is to offer a humane and dignified euthanasia.
