Fundraising for the Animal Care Society provides nearly 40% of the finances required to operate our shelter. While the public only thinks of ACS fundraising events as dates on a calendar, the staff and volunteers work continuously behind the scenes to create, design and implement each occasion.
Our flagship event, Bark in the Park, happens every September in one of Metro Louisville’s most popular green spaces, Seneca Park. An army of volunteers works with our staff to create a fun entertaining event featuring contests, a silent auction, and a raffle. This family and canine friendly event has become a perennial favorite among vendors and festival goers alike.
Things are barely wrapped up for Bark in the Park when the Bow Wow Meow Christmas Boutique takes center stage! Starting in late summer, our “elves” begin gathering items for this fabulous holiday event. Shoppers are delighted with charming gift basket after gift basket. Generous patrons have been known to need assistance to their vehicles with their loads of bargains!
The month of March brings our Animal Care Society Benefit Bash held at the Mellwood Art Center. It boast a night of dinner, dancing , complimentary bar, Live and silent auctions.
