DURHAM, North Carolina, (PRNewswire)– There aren’t many places in today’s world that offer ongoing, unconditional care to animals in need, but that’s exactly what the Goathouse Refuge does.

According to their website, Goathouse Refuge is a “nonprofit, no-kill animal sanctuary dedicated to providing cage-free care for cats regardless of age, medical issues or disposition until a permanent loving adoptive home can be found.”

Mr. Electric made the decision to donate both labor and material to make the shelter safe after visiting the facility for a normal estimate to upgrade some of the wiring. It was apparent that there was a lot of work to be done to make the wiring usable and safe for the animals and volunteers.

“Everyone is excited to donate their time, effort and energy to such a great person (refuge founder Siglinda Scarpa) and such a great cause,” says Tim Palange, operations manager for Mr. Electric. “I didn’t have to ask twice, even the office staff, and employee’s families are getting involved.”

In September, Mr. Electric will be in full force at the Goathouse Animal Refuge to work together to help keep this outstanding organization fully operational and safe, so they can continue doing what they have been doing for years – giving every animal the chance a full, healthy, loving life.
