Thank You Wyndham, Flowers and Volunteers

Wyndham Resorts, Flowers Bakery and many, many volunteers came out to support the Cumberland County Animal Shelter and AARF in one of the largest fundraisers this year!  Wyndham donated 4 trailer loads of furniture which was sold to the public at rock bottom prices in an attempt to raise funds for the homeless animals in our region.  Flowers Bakery donated snacks for sale at these events as well.  We raised over $3000 to help the animal shelter and homeless animals in Cumberland County over this 7 day event!  A BIG THANKS to all of the volunteers who came out to assist and support the shelter, and a BIG THANKS to all of you who came and purchased items for sale.

Events at Petco Murfreesboro

We have had some real good success doing adoption events at the PETCO store @ The Avenue in Murfreesboro.  Willie Wells, who is the manager here, invited us to attend and conduct events from this store.  We are in search of foster homes in the Murfreesboro area – real animal lovers who are familiar with veterinarians, services, etc. who are local.  We will not be attending this store on Saturday of this week (3/20) due to obligations in Cookeville.  Please contact Jennifer if you are interested in assisting:  [email protected] or (931) 260-8018.
