HENDERSON, Ky (WEHT) – New Hope Animal Rescue Center received a large, and valuable, gift of land.

A parcel of land valued at $375,000 was presented to New Hope Animal Rescue Center by Larry Bennett of Audubon Chrysler Center. This gift will enable New Hope Animal Rescue to build a new state of the art rescue center. In addition, Audubon Chrysler recently donated a Ram Promaster Van to better transport animals for medical and adoption services as well as $104,000 to clear New Hope Animal Rescue’s bank note. Founder Paula Hawkins said “This incredible land gift provides us a unique opportunity to build our dream facility! This is by far, the largest gift we have ever received.”
