A benefit concert is set to help raise money for a Sumner County no kill animal shelter on Friday night.
Around 150 animals fill the Safe Place for Animals shelter located in Sumner County, just south of downtown Gallatin.
Since beginning more than three years ago, the non-profit organization has provided care and helped place thousands of animals in forever homes.
"We've been opened three-and-a-half years and in that time we've adopted and taken in 3,000 animals," explained Diana Townsend of Safe Place for Animals.
According to Townsend the animals at the facility, also referred to as a spa, range from owner surrenders to strays to animals picked up off the side of the road.
The shelter is equipped with pools, pet beds and kennels to provide comfort to the animals in need of permanent homes.
The Safe Place for Animals also has a veterinarian clinic that offers grooming and a thrift store that benefits the organization.
"One hundred percent of the thrift store sales goes back to help the animals," Townsend said.
Townsend said she hopes to provide care for more animals, however said they are quickly running out of space.
"We want to have our own building specifically designed for take care of animals," she explained.
Friday night's concert, "Rockin' for the Animals" was organized by volunteer Dawn Gambrell.
"All of the proceeds that I'm trying to raise for this benefit is to help Diana get her new building to give her more space to help more animals and turn it into a community center people can bring their pets and have a day to go somewhere nice and it's important for me to help her get that building," Gambrell said.
The concert begins at 7 p.m. at the Holder Family Fun Center in Hendersonville.
Admission is $5.
Those who can not attend the event can sign up to volunteer time at the shelter or donate needed items such as dog food and detergent.
