Angie Brown of Hart EMC visited the J. Robert Mauldin Animal Sanctuary this week to present the Hart EMC Foundation grant we requested. Atalie Ivey accepted the check on behalf of the Hart County Humane Society. Atalie along with her grandmother Nancy Ivey volunteer at the Mauldin Sanctuary caring for our many kittens. The grant will help fund our spay/neuter programs. Applications for the programs can be found at local veterinarian offices and by visiting harthumane.org.
We are grateful for all who help fund this important program.

Adoption events will be so much easier with this wonderful cargo trailer donated by Dr. Hoyt and Lee Crump! Crates and supplies will be transported and stored more efficiently, saving time and energy. We appreciate this great gift.  








The Bow-Wow Meow Bingo was a great success, $1,362.00 was raised! We want to thank all who donated gifts, volunteered time and participated. 





We are so grateful for every dollar raised or donated every donated can or bag of food, each and every volunteer, no matter how much time you give. Together we are saving the lives of shelter dogs and cats. We want to take this opportunity to especially thank Doug and Luanne Burgess for the amazing cat maze they crafted from re-purposed shelving used in Dr. Mauldin’s Animal Hospital of Hartwell. We love the history of the wood as much as the cats love the maze. We also want to thank John Randazzo for putting the drywall up in the lobby, the room is looking great, we appreciate your efforts. 

This month we assisted the shelter in the rescue of 88 cats from a hoarder. My plan was to not take any, we already have so many. I was only there to help transport them to the shelter. When I saw the tiny kittens and nursing mothers I couldn't leave them, moms shouldn't nurse babies in shelters! I came back without a plan but 40 cats and kittens. Seven were nursing moms with babies, others are young kittens. This will put a financial strain on us. Besides money our biggest need right now is canned pate cat and kitten food. Please help us save these kittens, any donation is greatly appreciated. 

We have wonderful healthy spayed or neutered kittens available for adoption at the J. Robert Mauldin Animal Sanctuary at 1364 Reed Creek Hw. as well as at PetSmart on Clemson Blvd. in Anderson SC. There is a representative at the Mauldin Sanctuary Friday 10:00-2:00 and Saturday and Sunday 11:00-7:00 to do adoptions. It would be an enormous benefit if the cats had someone to show them to prospective adopters at different times in Anderson or Hartwell. If you can be at either place for a few hours to help the cats find homes what a wonderful gift it would be.


Thank you to all who adopted a homeless pet at the PetSmart National Adoption Event and the dedicated volunteers who helped make those adoptions happen. It was a great weekend for the animals and we are grateful for every forever home. 

We appreciate our friends at Purina Co., Walmart and those who donated so generously to make our Saturday May 26th supply drive successful! All our Purina coupons were handed out and enough donations were received for us to share with Northeast Georgia Animal Shelter. In addition, $945.00 was raised! 

There will be a meeting 5:30 Monday June 11th at the J. Robert Mauldin Animal Sanctuary at 1364 Reed Creek Hwy. Come see what great things are happening at the sanctuary. Together we can save more lives, please join us. 

The fund-raising committee will meet 5:00 Monday June 18th at Hang it Up Gallery, 30 N. Forest Ave, Hartwell. All are welcome to join this passionate group raise the funds necessary to care for the sick. injured and crippled dogs and cats in our care. 

Please know we are beyond grateful for friends who support our mission to save the lives of dogs and cats from our county's intake shelter.
