The Rummage Sale

Rummage Sale – CANCELLED

Due to concerns related to COVID19, the Board voted not to have our annual Rummage Sale this year.  This is done in an abundance of caution for our volunteers and those shopping at our event. The Board discussed ideas to replace income lost in not having the 127 Yard Sale and the Rummage Sale.  We would love for you to submit your thoughts and ideas for possible fundraising events.

127 Yard Sale

The 127 Yard Sale is a very exciting time for Anderson County residents and AHS is happy to join in the fun by holding our own yard sale each year. The 127 Yard Sale is the longest yard sale in the world running from Michigan to Alabama and right through Lawrenceburg. This event is held the first Thursday-Sunday of August. Our Yard Sale site is typically open Thursday-Saturday from 8am-4pm. Our yard sale site is staffed by volunteers, so please contact us if you can help. The treasures we sell are all donated by our supporters in the community, meaning 100% of the proceeds of each sale go directly to the cats and dogs in our care. We are happy to take almost any items in good condition but cannot take bedding,clothing or shoes for this sale. Are you prepared to find some great deals?

3 Ways to Help


Every item we sell is a tax-deductible donation from our great supporters. Donate your new or gently used items to help AHS raise money to fund our great community programs and care for the cats and dogs at the Adoption Center. There are some restrictions on what we can accept and when as we have to have the ability to store it until the sale. We cannot accept old style TVs or computers. Please contact us to learn more about donating yard sale items.


Since every item for sale at the Rummage Sale and 127 Yard Sale has been donated to us, each dollar you spend goes directly to the care of our adoptable cats and dogs and to fund our community programs. You can feel good about getting a great deal and helping out the homeless pets in Anderson County at the same time. The Rummage Sale is held at the American Legion every year, but our 127 Yard Sale site varies.


A lot of people have a hard time volunteering at the Adoption Center because it makes them feel sad or it’s too physically demanding. Volunteering at one of our sales is a great way to help the dogs and cats in our care without having to see the sad puppy dog eyes. Volunteers set out sale items, sell to the public, and help pack away anything left over at the end. Check out our volunteer page for more info or contact us at
