In 2013, AOW broke ground on what is now home to the Columbia Greene Humane Society. Previously providing support from a small building on the property, this facility has allowed the organization to grow beyond a traditional shelter. Services include providing low cost veterinary services, housing a food pantry for families in need, and offers boarding and grooming services to the public. This organization receives no federal, state or county funding and relies completely on the generosity of donors. One visit to this facility will have you hooked as a lifetime supporter. AOW is a proud sponsor of the annual Paws Picnic event which aims to raise funds to cover the facilities operating expenses. The last two years have attracted record turnout as the event featured, Sawyer Fredericks, the 2015 winner of “The Voice”.
