lOB Wednesday, Nov. 12, 2014 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter , Our Friends of Plumas County Animals rescue site has gone through some weatherization changes the past few weeks. We received a donation for some capital improvements and decided to snug up the building with new windows. We changed out five of the old single-pane windows, two of which couldn't be opened, and replaced them with all double-pane glass. The difference is already ANIMAL TALES FRIENDS OF PLUMAS COUNTY ANIMALS noticeable and our hope is that the site will be more comfortable for the volunteers, as well as the animals who are housed there. Another big help will be a decrease in our heating and cooling costs. There will be no more need to run the air conditioner all night in the summer as we can just leave a few windows open a bit to allow fresh air in the building. Many thanks to Harbor Management for the donation and to Plumas Glass for the swift and professional installation.
