Sarge’s 8th Annual Downtown Dog Walk

Long time readers know how passionate we are about our local all-breed rescue, Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation. ¬†In 2012, they found homes for 233 cats and 394 dogs. ¬†In addition, they transported an additional 292 animals to the Northeastern US no-kill shelters. ¬†That is 919 dogs and cats whose lives were saved in 2012 alone – almost 3 each and every day in our little county. ¬†Through June of 2013, adoptions were running 15% ahead of 2012.

On a more personal note, Cheoah and Qannik both came through Sarge’s as did Ruby over at The Herd Annex.


If you live anywhere near us, Saturday is a terrific day to come out and support Sarge’s (and come up and say hi to us). ¬†Sarge’s 8th Annual Downtown Dog Walk parades right down Main Street of Waynesville. ¬†Registration begins at 9 am at the courthouse with the parade starting at 10 a.m. ¬† And, as we understand it, the team that raises the most money will lead the parade. ¬†We led the parade back in 2010 and can tell you that is quite the honor.


Left to right – Kiska, Natasha, Qannik, Kodiak, Cheoah and Rusty

But the most fun is seeing all of the other canines that come out for the parade.  And we mean a lot of canines.


Lots and lots of dogs!

We hope to see you there tomorrow!
