Super Heroes to unveil plans for a new space | Local News


Super Heroes in Ripped Jeans will be hosting a shelter warming party on Sunday, December 5th at its new headquarters at 160 Pony Farm Road in Oneonta.

The warming up of the shelter will provide the community with an opportunity to see the new shelter space, said Board Chair Kristin Kulow. The conceptual floor plan for future renovations will be glued to the ground. The front room will house the reception, office, dog visiting area and cat community, with “catios” so cats can enjoy the outdoors. In the back room, there will be a cat and isolation condo, a surgical unit, a kennel and a kitchen and laundry area.

In addition to the self-guided tour, there will also be door prizes and raffles, a holiday bazaar, including poinsettias and crafts, a visit with Santa Claus and a chance to meet the new Executive Director of the organization, Jared Moore, Sunday, Kulow mentioned. Get Fresh from Shakedown Street and King’s Kakery provide goodies for people to eat during the open house, she said.

Moore was originally from the area and returned to the area after spending 10 years in Boston, Kulow said. According to a press release, Moore was Assistant Vice President in his last role in Human Services and has successfully led his organization through strategic planning, program development and transitional growth, while establishing new strong relationships with the community.

According to Kulow, the shelter is trying to raise $ 750,000 to renovate the building to accommodate the cats and dogs, which are housed at its 697 Winney Hill, Oneonta. site. The organization started in 2018 and has experienced “tremendous growth” since its inception, Kulow said. The shelter is home to several cats awaiting adoption. and a meowing chorus greets people as they enter the shelter.

She said the new building would allow the organization to better serve the community as the “need is never over.”

“We get calls every day,” she said. “Cats are our largest served population and there is a constant need to help them.”

Kulow said she had to “thank Dr Joan Puritz for hiring us. We wouldn’t be her without her.”

The event will take place from noon to 4 p.m. For more information, visit
