Mobile Adoption Van

Acquiring and customizing a step van or toy hauler to serve as a mobile adoption van is a long-term project, and some skills, like carpentry, plumbing, and automotive work, might not be needed for many years. But to plan for this HAVA can always use people who are knowledgeable about vehicle acquisition and customization, cage design and construction, safe public access, insurance and finance, and more.


Construction and related work

 Construct dog houses for foster homes that don't already have their own
 Set up portable kennels
 Advise on any facet of adoption-van design, construction, and acquisition
  ... And more!
