Dumped “Ditch Pony” Prompts APAW to Donate Horse Trailer to Animal Shelter

APAW recently purchased a horse trailer for the Amelia County Animal Shelter following an incident where the Animal Control Department had to borrow a horse trailer to pick up a sick pony that had been dumped by the side of the road on a bitterly cold day in December. It was a long, cold wait for both the pony and ACO Brian Wootton and ACO Eells before a willing veterinarian with a horse trailer could pick up the sick pony. Happily, the pony (named “DP” for “Ditch Pony”) has been successfully treated and adopted by the veterinarian who picked him up! However, Amelia County Animal Control is receiving a growing number of calls for which a horse trailer is needed, to include loose horses and ponies, cows, goats and pigs. Citing budget constraints, Amelia County turned to APAW for help and APAW agreed to purchase a trailer for the shelter. ACO Eells located a suitable trailer in early January and arranged for its transport to the shelter where APAW presented a check for its purchase.

APAW donates new storage shed to the Amelia County Animal Shelter

Amelia County Animal Control Officer Brian Wootton and Amelia County Animal Shelter Administrative Assistant/APAW Vice President Cindy Case show off the new Old Hickory storage shed that APAW recently donated to the Amelia County Animal Shelter. APAW originally donated a similar storage shed to the shelter in 2007 for the storage of equipment and supplies to free up valuable space for animals in the shelter. Upon learning that the shelter was once again cramped for space, APAW purchased an additional storage shed from 360 Sheds & Outdoor Buildings in Amelia, owned and operated by Rik & Stephanie Maybee. When they discovered that APAW was donating the shed to the animal shelter, the Maybees included their own donation to help with the purchase of the shed. The shed was designed to match the one previously purchased by APAW and was manufactured by the same company.
