Initial funding to establish Project POOCH, Inc.® and build a fenced training area came from private grants and Jean Vollum. The construction and remodeling of the K-9 building was done by Building Trades students under the direction of their instructor, Fred Mitchell. Additional kennels funded by the family of the late Fred "Fritz" Hayes, Jr.
