Qannik is sitting on Richland Balsam enjoying his time with The Herd. He loves his family, because his previous life was harsh. When we adopted him, his ears were bare from fly bites, his neck had open cuts from where he had a rope tied around his neck, and his feet were mangled from standing on a wire mesh floor. He came to us from the wonderful people at Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation.
Cheoah is curled up on her blanket, warm and happy. She loves being so warm and happy, because she was found tied to a tree behind a foreclosed and abandoned home. The call came to us via the caring and concerned leaders of Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation and Cheoah found her home.
Ruby is loving life living with Tartok over at The Thundering Herd Annex (the hu-grandparents house). After scoring the rolls we have already told you about, Ruby this week was able to snag a half loaf of bread and 3 hamburger buns – on different days. She is able to perfect her counter surfing skills because the excellent volunteers at Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation sprung her from the shelter and the magic got her to her new home.
Today’s post is aimed at all of our local readers in and around Western North Carolina. We received this email from Sarge’s today:
Sarge’s van has made its last delivery. After 14 years and many miles, “Old Reliable” has gone to its final parking spot. Now we are shopping for its replacement. We need a gently-used stretch van of recent vintage. It will be used regularly for transporting animals to adoption events, to their new homes, and to out-of-state rescue groups. Just last week, we rented a van to carry 22 rescued dogs and pups to an adoption center in New Jersey. The more companion animals we save, the more we need a van. Please make a generous donation to our “Keep ’em Rolling” fund now.
Their fall newsletter is out as well and you can view that by clicking here.
The members of The Herd are forever grateful to the volunteers of Sarge’s and the other rescues who helped to see that they were able to make it safely to Chez Herd and live out their lives as dogs should. If you are not in our area, please contribute whatever you can – time or money – to your local rescues. A life depends on it.

The classic movie Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) had a bouncing toy befriend a boy. My recent experience with a silver balloon, however, makes me question the uplifting tale.
