Robert and Barbara Polverari moved into Southwick 6 years ago. The animal lovers that they are, started a whole new friendship between the Animal Control Department and the family.

Dog in ShelterBob came into the shelter 3 years ago and asked to help do something for the animals. He built solid dividers for the kennels so the dogs would not fight. After seeing the small shelter and the fact that the animal control officer wasn't in the same building Bob and Barbara decided that the town could use a new animal shelter.

This started the process of planning and then building the shelter for the town. Within 93 days the animals were moving into a new 2400 square foot building with office space, play area for the dogs, adoption area and lobby. Bob and Barbara are avid animal lovers to say the least.
