Tyler recently donated $35 to the AWS. Here he is with his awesome family (he’s the one with light hair). His 11th birthday was the day after his Hero Tour. Thanks Tyler!

Maine Foodie Tours

Our friends Pam and Wendy from Maine Foodie Tours stopped by to drop off a big donation — proceeds from their “Doggie and Me” culinary tours of Kennebunkport.  They had a fantastic season and we are so grateful for their support. Thank you for all you do to help our shelter pets find their new homes.  See you next season!

Logan was here for fun with his mom and she told me that Logan, age 7, had a birthday party, donated dog and cat items and collected money on his own because he “likes animals and likes to help them out.” We get it, Logan. And we get that you are awesome. Thank you.

Lift the Spirit

Congratulations to Mail-It Unlimited (Shoppers Village Card & Gift) for being honored by DEMDACO, a wholesale gift and home goods distribution firm with their Lift the Spirit award.  This award was recently presented to Bill, Allie and Anna at their shop in Kennebunk.

According to DEMDACO:

“The Lift the Spirit awards are presented to a retailer in each sales region who demonstrates alignment with the DEMDACO business mission to “Lift the Spirit” of others. Account executives from the DEMDACO sales team nominate retailers to be considered for the awards and winners are selected by the DEMDACO Customer Care department. Retailers’ involvement in their local communities is an important consideration in the selection process.”

In addition to honoring the shop, DEMDACO makes a financial contribution to an organization selected by the winning retailer.  Bill, Anna and Allie selected AWS to receive these generous funds! We are so grateful to them for including us in this honor and for their ongoing support of our animals.  Everyone at Mail-It truly does “lift the spirit” of our community.  Thank you!

Eva recently donated some of her savings to help our animals. She could think of nothing more awesome than coming to the AWS on her birthday for a Hero Tour! Happy Birthday, Hero!!
