St. Paul dog kennel becomes Eagle Scout project

A local boy scout is spending his weekend helping the City of Saint Paul and its animal control efforts.

17 year-old Michael Mehle is performing his Eagle Scout Project on improving the Saint Paul Animal Control Center.

“It’s definitely pretty exciting I’d say,” Mehle said. 

Mehle is going to give the Animal Control Center dog play area a mini makeover, including putting down new dirt and gravel.

“To learn we had this great opportunity to be able to make this a really special place was really a moment of excitement for us,” Molly Lunaris, Director of Saint Paul Animal Control Center said. “It’s a great opportunity for him, great opportunity for us, great thing for the animals.” 

Mehle plans to start the improvement project at the Saint Paul Animal Control Center on Saturday morning.

“I’ve had a lot of people say it’s a good thing I’m doing and I think so too,” Mehle said.
