How much of your property do you own vertically?
The top of your tallest tree?
How high could build on your property? A replica of the 555-foot Washington Monument?

“This has been a difficult summer for our dogs. It’s been really tough to find placement for many of our urgent dogs and I want to make sure we are all doing all that we can give them every opportunity possible.
