Learn about animal rescue efforts

Written by 

Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation’s annual meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 13, at the Haywood County Library on South Haywood Street in Waynesville.

Speakers featured at the meeting will be Katherine McGowan Shenar, Interim President/CEO, and Jennifer Brehler, director of operations of the Asheville Humane Society.

McGowan-Shenar moved to Asheville and joined AHS in January 2008 after working for The Humane Society of the United States. Brehler came to AHS in July 2008 from the Durham Animal Protection Society. She has over 11 years experience working in open admission shelters. 

All volunteers and anyone interested in the work Sarge’s does for animals is invited.

“In 2009, due to the dedicated efforts of Sarge’s volunteers and shelter staff, over half of the dogs and cats that entered the shelter were rescued,” said Steve Hewitt, president of the Sarge’s Board of Directors. “That is a first. Sarge’s volunteers saved over 900 animals last year and is on track for the same number in 2010.”

For more information regarding the Annual Meeting or Sarge’s in general, visit the website at www.sargeandfriends.org  or call 828.246.9050.  Sarge’s can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
