COME JOIN US FOR A
HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE
SATURDAY DECEMBER 14
We’re not QUITE ready to cut that ribbon and open our new Shelter building just yet – but we would like to invite the public to a pre-opening “Shelter-warming” on Saturday December 14 from noon to 3. Both our current and new Shelter buildings will be open to visitors, with guided tours of each. Come see how far we’ve come, and how we plan to continue serving our community from our new and improved facility.
Please join us for a look around and some light refreshments. We’ll also have some fundraising items for sale including logo merchandise, perfect for last-minute holiday gifts. Holiday-themed gift membership cards will also be for sale – a great “stocking-stuffer”!
You can also pick up one of our own Christmas stockings to fill with dog or cat goodies and bring back to the Shelter by December 24. Our Shelter residents will then receive them on Christmas morning.
There are still some rooms in the new Shelter building available for sponsorship at levels of $1000 and up. Samples of the permanent sponsor plaques to be inscribed and mounted by each room will also be on display.

We look forward to seeing you there!
Now your scrap metal can help raise funds for the Shelter when you take it to “The Coach Workes of Schoharie County” at 4923 State Rte 30(across from Jack Miller Tractor) in Schoharie. Just tell them before your receipt is written that you wish to donate your proceeds to the Shelter, and they will make out the check to the Shelter and hold it there for us. You will be given a receipt as usual marked “donated to ASSV”, which can be used as a donation receipt for tax purposes. Their hours are 8:30-5 Mon-Fri and 8:30-noon Saturday, closed Sunday.
The Coach Workes buys steel, tin, aluminum, batteries, and cars. They do not accept precious metals (gold, silver, platinum), old campers, or old travel trailers. Metal fuel containers (tanks, cans, barrels, etc.) must be empty and have a hole in the bottom per DEC regulations. Otherwise they’ll take almost any scrap metal – tools, vehicles, large and small appliances, fencing, metal furniture, plumbing fixtures, cookware, metal garbage cans, pipes, and much more – even aluminum foil! Any questions, please call George, Ron, or Ed at 827-5160.
Dogs from ASSV are making regular outings to an area nursing home, where they have become very popular visitors! To read about it in the Oneonta Daily Star click here.
Now you can help ASSV every time you buy or sell on Ebay, the world’s largest online marketplace. For details please click here.
One of our new friends
Local viewers may have seen recent news stories about how ASSV has been helping a large number of cats rescued from a hoarding situation. We’re honored, and just a little bit stressed, to be assisting in this situation but are happy to report that most of the cats are doing fairly well.
We especially want to thank the wonderful foster homes that stepped up to take the mommas and their babies! That really saved us!
Special thanks to Vern Durie, DVM from the Cobleskill Veterinary Clinic for his generous assistance! Howes Cave Animal Hospital and Dr David Rummel also came to the rescue for us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
We thank the many donors who have come by with funds and supplies.
If you would like to assist in this situation, donations are more than welcome. There is a Paypal donate button on every page of our website, and checks are also accepted to:
PO Box 40
Howes Cave, NY 12092
