Middle School Dance Team helps with Event
November 15, 2015 - AHS held an Adoption Event and Supply Drive Tractor Supply Co. today with the help of some wonderful volunteers and the Anderson County Middle School Dance Team. We raised close to $200 and a shopping cart full of much needed supplies, Doggy attendee, Trish, ended up fostered with a good possibility of landing a permanent home. Louie, the Beagle, wasn't sure he could dance, but he sure enjoyed the attention he received from the dance team! The girls gave him so much attention he almost fell asleep from relaxation. Thanks to all the wonderful volunteers today. We are blessed and proud to have the support of so many young people from our community.
First Christian Youth Group Volunteers
November 15, 2014 - First Christian Church Youth Group visited the Adoption Center on a very chilly morning to lend a hand. The young men moved some gravel over to our Director's parking space, while the young ladies helped winterize the windows in the dog kennels. All the dogs went for long walks, and we all learned that Pastor Mike is a natural with Bloodhounds. Cat resident Hanna is usually reserved with our volunteers, but she seemed to enjoy all the young folks petting her. We assumed it was divine intervention. Many thanks to such a wonderful group for all their hard work and dedication of their time.
Eagle Scouts Benefit Adoption Center
November 1, 2014 - The Eagle Scouts completed their project to the benefit of the dogs at the Adoption Center. A roof was installed over the back kennel which extends down to the yard. It looks fantastic and will keep out some weather, and provide shade for the dogs while they are outside stretching their legs and playing. Many thanks to such a hard working group.

Raise the Steaks Fundraiser at Logan's
October 15, 2014 - The Raise the Steaks fundraising event held at Logan's Steakhouse in Frankfort was a huge success. Logan's agreed to donate 15% of pre-tax proceeds to the AHS, and if our sales generated over 50 guests, the proceeds rose to 20%. Final numbers showed between 80 and 100 guests. This was a good fundraiser, lots of fun and delicuous food. Many thanks to Logan's Steakhouse for offering to host this fundraising event.
