Bonnieville City Hall, 11/17/18
Cub Run Spay-Neuter-Rabies Voucher Event
On September 8, 2018, the Cub Run Fire Department hosted ARK’s 4th SNR voucher event of the year. Eighty low-cost vouchers were distributed to area pet owners, who are committed to helping solve the problem of too many strays and abandoned animals. Thank you to all of the wonderful ARK volunteers, to our loyal Hart County residents who are spaying-neutering your animals, to Cub Run fire chief Christopher Thompson, former fire chief Bobby Jaggers, and especially to our ARK Voucher event coordinator Alicia McClure - another highly successful event!
ARK Carnival and Membership Drive, 2018
There was great fun on July 21 at the ARK Carnival/Membership Drive! So many fun activities for kids and dogs and the best pulled pork sandwiches ever! Rain didn't dampen any enthusiasm for providing great care for our animal friends.
Hardyville Spay-Neuter-Voucher Event
Pet owners braved the heat to sign up for low-cost vouchers for their pets on July 14 in Hardyville. Folks also took advantage of half-price ARK memberships - such a deal. Thanks, as always, to our dedicated volunteers, who make it all possible.
2018 Dawgy Dash a Howling Success!
June 2 was a great day for a race and lots of fun! Over 400 runners, walkers, and their dogs signed up to take part in the 2018 Dawgy Dash 5K. It is ARK's biggest fundraiser of the year; this year we passed our original goal to bring in more than $40,000, thanks to our many dedicated volunteers and sponsors. The organizers and volunteers did a great job providing fun activities and a good time for everyone involved. A big shout-out to Larissa Trousdale for making the whole thing possible.
Horse Cave Spay/Neuter Event, April 21, 2018
102 Hart Countians took advantage of the discounted price of $25 to have their dog or cat spayed/neutered at Hartland Animal Hospital or Riverside Animal Clinic. It is estimated that one cat and her offspring can have over 400,000 kittens in a 7 year period. So if you think spaying one cat or dog doesn't make a difference, think again! Mark your calendar for the next ARK voucher event on July 14 at the Hardyville Community Center.
Munfordvile Spay/Neuter Event, January 20, 2018
ARK’s Munfordville spay-neuter-rabies voucher event was held on January 20. It was the sixth voucher event held since January, 2017 and was another big success. Despite the wintry weather, 64 vouchers were distributed. The vouchers are sold for by ARK for a $25 fee to help prevent the birth of unwanted animals in Hart County. Thanks to all our volunteers and donors who help make this program possible.
ARK was represented in the area's Christmas parades, with lots of good holiday cheer.

ARK Voucher Day in Bonnieville a success! On November 4, 2017, 118 animal lovers bought a $25 voucher today to spay/neuter their cat or dog. Thank you Hart Countians for taking responsibility to prevent hundreds of unwanted puppies and kittens.
