2018 Dawgy Dash a Huge 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
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.

The Cub Run Firehouse Spay-Neuter-Rabies Event on August 19, 2017 set a record with 106 low-cost vouchers sold. Thanks to the ARK volunteers who worked at Cub Run and to the voucher patrons who showed up to purchase a low cost S-N-R voucher in support of ARK's most important program!

The Hardyville Voucher Event on June 24, 2017 was a huge success! ARK distributed 89 spay-neuter-rabies vouchers to Hart County residents. Thanks to the Hardyville Community Center's Jack Bunnell for making the building available, thanks to the ARK volunteers who staffed the event, and thanks to the 89 residents who came out to support ARK's program. Together, we are making a difference!
ARK's First Annual Dawgy Dash is now history! We successfully raised over $14,000 due to an outpouring of support from our community of friends in Hart and surrounding counties.
