The AKC CAR Canine Support and Relief Fund recently donated crates and ex-pens to the Hickman Humane Society (HSS), a shelterless society near Nashville, Tennessee that lost most of its supplies during the recent tragic flooding in the area.

Intense rainfall (more than a foot of rain over two days) and the cresting of the Cumberland River created the worst flood conditions in Nashville's history.

The Nashville Kennel Club alerted AKC and AKC Companion Animal Recovery to the Hickman Humane Society's needs after it requested assistance caring for the dogs, cats and litters of puppies currently in its custody.

Hickman Humane Society, Inc (HHS) was founded in 1996 by a small group of volunteers, and it currently plays a big role in a rural county without an animal control. A small group of foster care homes generally house the animals in HSS care, while funding is entirely dependent upon donations.
