Last spring, we found out we had a furry new neighbor moving in next door - the Athens Area Humane Society (AAHS) at 1030 Mitchell Bridge Road! To welcome our new neighbor, we launched a pet foot drive that lasted all summer. For every customer who donated a bag of dry pet food or wet food, Stanfield offered them either $10 off their service or to match their donation.
Thank you to everyone who participated. We are so proud to say that together, we donated 602 lbs. of dry pet food and 404 cans of wet food!
AAHS Marketing and Communications Manager Cronweld Leon said, “The amount of donations is astounding! We’re certainly set for at least the month, which is a HUGE help since food is our highest expense.”We were so thrilled to get to take all of the food to our new neighbors last month, and of course, Max and Molly had to go with us and check out their beautiful new headquarters. It boasts over 15,000 square feet, a new vet clinic, and an adoption center. Their new facilities will help AAHS continue to serve pets and pet owners in the area with affordable spay/neuter services, a pet food pantry, and more.
It’s such a privilege to serve and give to such a great organization that supports pets in our community. To learn more or get involved with the Athens Area Humane Society, head over to www.athenshumanesociety.org.
