LANCASTER — The Garrard County Animal Shelter will celebrate 500 days euthanasia-free Saturday. It will be open 8 a.m.-4 p.m., donations will be accepted and Girl Scouts will be on site selling cookies. 

The shelter has been operating as capacity, or above, for most of the last year. It served 737 animals in 2017, including four hoarding cases. It continues to fundraise for new kennels, as many of what they have on hand are no longer safe. 

The shelter is located at 210 Doty Heights in Lancaster.
