Hartman Roofing Owner, Justin Phillips climbs this ladder everyday, but this time he is climbing it with more determination to fix a particular leaky roof.. "The condition of the roof is in pretty bad shape. It's wore out. It has been patched on several times. Some areas are still leaking," says Justin about the Lubbock Animal Shelter roof.
Justin has worked on many leaky roofs before, but you only get one opportunity to repair a roof and it actually means something. Just ask Lubbock Animal Service Manager Nancy Hickman.. "It's nice to see the community come out and back us and give generously towards making a problem stop," said Hickman Friday.
While the noise from above continued through the day, residents of the animal shelter, like the cats, kittens, and pooches did not seem to mind. Even though you couldn't read much appreciation on the faces of these fury guys, still, Justin is their hero. "My girlfriend called me on my mobile Tuesday night. Since my office is right down the road I came by here, put some tarps out. Tried to stop it for the time being and then we got things lined up so we could get it done," says Justin.
A job that was completed in eight hours. Now, the roof is sealed by a business which rightfully so deserves the name "Hart"man. Cameron Ashley Incorporated donated the materials to fix the animal shelter's roof and Hartman Roofing donated the labor.
All this month is the Christmas for the Pets program. You can donate items such as dry cat and dog food, litter, dog treats and livestock feed to the shelter. To find out where to drop off the gifts, call the shelter at (806) 775-2057 .
