General Membership Board Meeting
The humane society General Membership Board Meeting will be held Tuesday evening, September 1, starting at 6:30 p.m. in the Large Meeting Room at the Anderson County Library. There are lots of upcoming events this Fall and we need your input, and we need volunteers. Light refreshments provided. Why not bring a friend who is interested in helping the animals?
August 29, 2015 -- Year-to-date spay/neuter fundraising from the Pig Outs this Summer at Hill of Beans have raised $434.50. Thank you to all who attended and emptied their piggy banks. We will be accepting piggy bank change at Burgoo Festival with the drawing for the Country Ham on Sunday.
July 26, 2015 -- An anonymous supporter of AHS with a lifelong love of animals within the community has donated graciously out of their summer business proceeds to help the animals in our care at the Adoption Center. While they wish to remain anonymous, we would like to send out a big shout of thanks to this wonderful donor.
Stephanie Durr, volunteer with AHS, held a Jamberry Fundraiser in June for the animals in our care and presented us with a very nice check representing her commissions from the sales. Thank you Stephanie, you are a friend to the animals. Stephanie and Elizabeth Fiehler, another long-time AHS volunteer have been instrumental in adoption events and, just yesterday, adopted our three young cats at Petsmart in Lexington, with another going to foster with possible adoption.
Our volunteers rock and make life better for the animals! Thank you to all our volunteers!

Memorial Day Fundraiser at Shoe Carnival
May 23, 2015 -- AHS was invited to cook for the crowd by Shoe Carnival in Frankfort for Memorial Day Weekend. Board members, Sandy Warner and Dennis Schraub, took the challenge and brought home the bacon. A whopping $52 was made in donations and it was a whole lot of fun said both Sandy and Dennis.
The Anderson Humane Society community is saddened to have recently lost two of their founding members. Louise Camic passed away on March 12, of this year, and on April 23, we lost another beloved founding member, Shirley Martin. The lives of homeless animals in Anderson County were forever impacted by the love and selflessness of these two women. When discussing the need for a Humane Society over 30 years ago, Shirley Martin stated matter-of-factly, "it must be done." Our heart-felt condolences to the families of these two great women.
