FINAL REPORT ON THE  WONDERFUL WALKIN FREEZER MADE POSSIBLE BY ALCES.

THE MEAT PROCESSING FINANCES
POURING CONCRETE PAD ………………..…………………………….…….$1500
WASHABLE  SHED TO PROCESS THE FROZEN  CHUNKS          ..… ….…2000
KOLPAK 6X6X8  ’WALK IN FREEZER      ..…………………………………....…6750


WHY  WAS THIS WAS NECESSARY…?
IT STARTED WHEN  WE  TOOK 5 DOGS IN TRAINING  INTO THE  ROAST BEEF SANDWICH  STORE NEAR LIBERTY TREE MALL- SOMEH0W  FIVE   150 POUND  DANES CAUGHT THE  EYE OF THE  MANAGER.—JIM--    NICE MAN – DOG LOVER.. HE ASKED IF WE COULD USE HIS BEEF ENDS THAT WOULD NOT GO THRU HIS SLICER.- OF COURSE  WE COULD-- WITH 50 ODD DANES ON THE  PROPERTY     THAT TURNED INTO HAVING HIM DELIVER ABOUT 300 POUNDS OF BEAUTIFUL BEEF WEEKLY—FROZEN IN LARGE CHUNKS—EVEN TOO BIG FOR DANES..

^%$^&^  NO PHOTO  IN THIS DD   BEEF CUTTING AT FIREPLACE

FOR MONTHS  VOLUNTEERS SPENT  HOURS  CUTTING  THEM INTO CHUNKS IN FRONT OF OUR FIREPLACE—INTIL  ONE OF THE VOLUNTEERS HAD THE BRAINSTORM OF USING THE WOOD CHIPPER HER HUSBAND USED TO CHOP TUNA BAIT..  WE TRIED IT.   THE WOOD CHIPPER DID WORK… BUT SPRAYED BEEF ALL OVER ..     DONNING TYVEK SUITS WE MOVED THE OPERATION TO THE  YARD FOR A FEW MONTHS AS  WE STRUGGLED TO IMPROVE OUR EFFICIENCY.

..- BUT STILL THE ONLY PLACE   I COULD WASH AND CLEAN  THE  MACHINE WITH HOT SOAPY WATER —WAS IN MY SHOWER.  A VERY CUMBERSOM PROJECT- BUTIT WAS WORKING AND THE  BEEF WAS A BEAUTIFUL DIET FOR THE  PUPS. ( WITH  TUMS ADDED -PRESCRIBED BY THE VET FOR CALCIUM).
WE  ROTATED THE  BEEF  IN 3 COOLERS AND  6  USED DONATED  FREEZERS IN MY CELLAR.- THEN 2 CEASED TO FUNCTION  PLUS WE GOT CONFUSED…CAUSING A STENCH BEYOND A DUMPSTER SMELL–  NOT WANTING TO ASK JIM TO BRING LESS BEEF ,   WE HAD TO GET RID OF THE EXTRA FOR WHICH WE HAD NO STORAGE … WE  DUG  DEEP HOLES WITH THE  BACK HOE AND TREATED OUR WORM POPULATION TO A FEAST.  ONCE OR TWICE IT WAS NO PROBLEM- BUT VERY SOON- EVEN WITH 12 ACRES WE  HAD OMINIOUS MOUNDS VAGUELY RESEMBLING GRAVE SITES  OVER  MUCH OF THE AVAILABLE LAND.

OUR 60+ VOLUNTEERS WERE PERFECTLY WILLING TO  HAND CUT ALL THIS BEEF --- IF IN THE LONG RUN IT MADE FOR MORE AND BETTER SERVICE  DOGS.    HOWEVER  THE SYSTEM  NEEDED REDESIGNING.

NOT WANTING TO DISTURB THE BOARD OF HEALTH, WE  LOOKED INTO A WALK IN FREEZER OUTDOORS… WE CONSULTED AN EXPERT – A  MCDONALDS  FRANCHIESE OWNER. THIS IS WHERE ALCES CAME IN AND SAVED THE  DAY—NOW WE  USE  ALL THE BEEF HE   BRINGS- WE CAN EVEN OFFER THE FROZEN CHUNKS TO THE PEOPLE TO WHOM WE HAVE DONATED DOGS.
WE CAN ALSO STORE THE 3 GALLON TUBS OF ICECREAM OCASSIONALLY DONATED BY BEN AND JERRYS. THIS KEEPS  OUR VOLUNTEERS HAPPY.
… ……..HAPPY VOLUNTEERS ARE EXCELLENT ( AND CHEAP) HELP.

WE   HAVE  DONATED 16 DOGS IN 2014 AND 6 SO FAR IN 2015.
 WITH MOTHER NATURE’S HELP- ALONG WITH THE ANNENBERG FOUNDATION , PURINA AND THE THOUSANDS OF “CAMERA PEOPLE”   WHO BUY $15,000 WORTH OF CHICKEN BRICKS MONTHLY,  TO BECOME SUPPORTING  MEMBERS OF THE “SHATUPON SOCIETY  OF IPSWICH “,WE  WILL CONTINUE.

YOUR FREEZER IS A HUGE STEP FORWARD IN PRODUCING  MORE SERVICE DOGS BY IMPROVING OUR EFFICIENCYT.  THE  DEMAND KEEPS  INCREASING  AS  PEOPLE  HEAR OF OUR SUCCESSFUL PARTNERSHIPS.   

 OUR RECIPIENTS THANK YOU FOR MAKING THE DIFFERENCE.
