It's that time of year once again:
time to consider donating antiques, vintage items, quality or interesting collectibles to the Animal Welfare Society's booth at the 85th annual Kennebunk Antiques Show and Sale.
The show is at Kennebunk High School on August 3 & 4.The Animal Welfare Society benefits from this event in two ways: The AWS is given a booth at the show in which we sell donated antiques as well as quality vintage and collectible items with all of the proceeds going to help the more than 3,600 animals we serve annually.
The AWS receives a generous donation from the show promoters, John and Liz DeSimone.
If you have an antique, vintage item or collectible that you wish to donate to the AWS for sale at the Kennebunk Antiques Show please contact Debbie at (207) 286-6517 or Fran at (207) 985-3721 to arrange to drop off items at the AWS. We will also gladly arrange to have items picked up.
If possible, due to the planning and organization that must take place it would be very much appreciated if items could be dropped off or picked up no later than July 10, 2013. Please no appliances or yard sale items.

Meet Koby, a 10-and-a-half year old Labrador - Greyhound Mix. Being of such a unique breed gives Koby a unique look. He's got many of the usual Labrador features, but on a Greyhound frame. He'll definitely turn heads when he's on a walk around the neighborhood. Koby is a smart boy who already knows the commands "sit," "down," and "give paw." He'd enjoy spending time learning new ones with his new people. He loves going for car rides, he makes for a great co-pilot, and is rarely without a stuffed toy he can chomp on. Koby would be happy to share a new home with some other dogs and older, respectful children, but no cats please. This handsome fellow would be ideal for most anyone looking for a loyal, affectionate, and easy going companion. If you'd like to adopt Koby, then stop on in today to meet him.

We found Cynder and adopted her on January 24, 2013. I saw her at PetSmart and just had to have her. When I first saw her and read that she had to be the only cat I was very sad, where as we have two cats already. We called and asked a few questions and brought her home. We already have two 1 1/2 year old male brothers. We brought Cynder home and let her explore the house a little by herself so she could feel it out. After a little bit we introduced her one by one to the boys. They have been wonderful together since day one. You would think that they have known each other all there lives. I am so very excited that this has worked out. Cynder is so loveable. She feeds on attention which is so great because I love and needed someone to give attention. We brought her to the vet the following week. We did find out that she has arthritis which was not surprising given her age. Other than that she is in wonderful health. Cynder is a great addition to our family and I couldn't be happier having her here. I am so glad that we brought her into our home. Thank you so much for all that you do to ensure these cats are safe and helping them find families.
