Third Annual ‘Stock the Shelters'

One of the best parts about living in our community is how we come together to help our local animal shelters. For the third year in a row, we partnered with Eyewitness News and Pet Food Centers to 'Stock the Shelters'.

“Most people know right now the shelter world is in kind of dire need. These donations will surely help ACA, who is a great rescue partner of the humane society, which is an open-intake shelter and also, we’re so appreciative of Eyewitness News and also Town Square Media,” she tells us. “They’re always great partners for all of the rescues and shelters in our community. Anytime we have a plea and need help they’re always the first ones to kind of reach out and cover what we need.”

Every year, two shelters are chosen to receive donations, and the two shelters this year were the “Humane Society of Henderson County” and “Another Chance for Animals”.
