Not your ordinary curve ahead. Trust us on this one.
Wouldn’t it be easier just to say “Don’t Walk Here”?
For those of you who rely on your GPS
That last one is on a road that is steep, unpaved, and requires four wheel drive on a dry day. But it is the “shortest” route to the ski resort. We do the road every now and then, but only in the Jeep. We did it this past weekend and got the following reaction:
Kodiak – Are you nuts?
Kiska – I can’t look.
And now a good sign. We received the following email from our good friends at Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation, the local all breed rescue that is working hard in our county (and helped bring Qannik and Cheoah to The Herd and Ruby to The Herd Annex):
Year to date, Sarge’s efforts have rescued nearly 700 dogs and cats through Foster Care and by transporting them to Breed Rescue Groups and out-of-state adoption centers. Last year Sarge’s rescued over 900 animals and all signs point to us exceeding that number this year. And that, together with the efforts of our friends at the Haywood County Animal Control facility, means that about 55% of the animals taken into the County facility will leave there alive this year, up from about 20% just a few years ago.
Dogs and cats are being saved today that simply would not have had a chance a few years ago. Congratulations to our friends at Sarge’s and continued support from The Herd to make even more progress next year.
And from all of us – please support your local rescue!
