Breaking Ground: Enrichment Garden For Shelter Pets

  • Vance County Animal Shelter 1243 Brodie Road Henderson, NC, 27536 United States (map)

Vance County Animal Shelter is inviting you to join us in breaking ground on the NEW Enrichment Garden. This project will take a community! Together through volunteers, donations, planning, and sweat we plan to offer the shelter dogs a garden that encourages play. 

This space will be filled animal safe sensory plants/herbs that offer different benefits as well as agility equipment like tunnels, hoops, agility walk, and more. Of course a lot of this will be based on donations. 

We have a Wish List posted below and a link to the donation page. We also ask groups and citizens interested in volunteering email us at to sign up. We are so excited to offer our shelter dogs this new enrichment environment!

We will be serving food: Hot dogs and burgers with chips and drinks. So please let us know if you plan on attending so we can serve all our hardworking volunteers.
