DENKAI EXPANSION - Denkai Animal Sanctuary has begun a 30-day drive to raise up to $100,000 to expand its veterinary clinic in Eaton. Founder Floss Blackburn says the Weld County nonprofit has outgrown its current space and has an opportunity to purchase a building attached to its current clinic.

"This extra 1,200 square feet will allow us to expand our veterinary service capacity and allow for housing of rescue dogs that would be view-able and adoptable by the public on a daily basis while continuing to utilize foster homes," Blackburn said.

Since opening the current location (217 First Street) in late 2012, Denkai has provided low-cost and subsidized veterinary care services for more than 3,000 clients and is growing at a rate of 60 percent a month, she said.

The final day to receive pledges will be April 25. More information: (www.denkaisanctuary.org)
