For the past year, ACHS has been quietly conducting a capital campaign to raise the $1.12 million needed to design and build the new addition and renovate existing shelter located at 236 Boardman Street in Middlebury, VT. Called the "Homeward Bound Campaign," ACHS is more than three-quarters towards its goal having raised approximately $919,683.
The Homeward Bound Campaign has now moved into its public phase whereby community members will be asked to make donations large and small.
"Over the years we've had great support from the community through the shelter's well-established events such as Woofstock and Ruff Ride. Proceeds from those events go towards our every day operating expenses," said Jackie Rose.

"During the next 3 to 24 months we'll be creating several new promotions and events with the goals of raising awareness and soliciting donations specifically earmarked for the construction project. Be on the lookout for several hay bale animal sculptures around the county with these goals in mind."
