It has been a year of unwanted animals that are sick, injured, and broken in body and spirit, and it has created a huge deficit in our Res-Q Fund. The many challenges we face daily at our shelters are particularly difficult this summer. Many tears have been shed and hearts tested by all of our employees at the sight of the many neglected and abused animals who have entered our doors in recent weeks. Please feel free to check out the many stories here on our website and on our Facebook pages.
Somehow, the difficulty of helping so many needy animals has kicked our determination into high gear and our staff goes into action giving them the care they so desperately need. Dogs covered in filth are given soothing baths, often for the first time in their lives, to calm them and reassure them that they are in the hands of skilled, caring humans. These unwanted orphans all go through our intake process for shots and exams. They are talked to gently and caressed by kennel staff and vet techs who want them to feel safe. This is what a day is like at AHS.
The sweepstakes is held each year to support our financial needs which helps these animals … and to give you the chance to hopefully be fortunate enough to win one of these fabulous prizes! Our Save-A-Life Sweepstakes drawing will be held December 10, 2017 at 3 pm at our Forked River shelter/Popcorn Park.
Booklets of tickets are available, ten tickets per booklet, for a suggested donation of $10/booklet. You can request a booklet(s) by e-mail or call (609) 693-1900 or stop by our AHS' Forked River shelter. Good luck!
