Cat Palace Makeover 2012

After two full days and five cans of paint we're happy to report that the HSEC Cat Palace Makeover 2012 is complete!! 

Rumor has it the HSEC Cat Palace hadn't seen a fresh coat of paint in at least 25 years!  Some of our volunteers decided it was time to make a change.  Here are some before pictures to demonstrate this major transformation:

Special thanks to Inner Banks Paint in Greenville for donating over $100 in paint and supplies!!  Without their generous donation and support in helping us select just the right color our dreams of a fabulous new Cat Palace would not have come true!

We'd also like to send a special thank you to all the volunteers who came out to paint with us, many of them came out for both painting days and we couldn't have done it without them!  If you see any of these happy faces around the facility be sure to thank them for their hard work!

(Thank yous also goes out to Hannah, Austin, Ryan, David, and Lauren, not pictured.)

Thanks to all their hard work and hours of dedication the entire Cat Palace has been painted purple, the ceiling saw two coats of white paint which brighten up the room tremendously, and we also got donations of a new clock and adorable sign!  Here are the after photos:

Of course pictures just don't do justice to the fantastic new look of our facility, now it really is a cat palace!  We hope you'll stop by soon to see it in person and visit with our wonderful adoptable cats and kittens!  Also, stay tuned for a follow up post with more pictures of the mural being completed by student artists!
