CHHS DavidWithDogs

Today marks the second anniversary of starting the greatest job a lifelong animal advocate could ever hope for - to be the director of your Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society. We have had an amazing two years together and have accomplished a great deal for the animals in our community, not the least of which is finding more forever homes than ever before in our 27-year history.

I thank every single animal lover in our little piece of paradise here in western North Carolina for the success we have achieved. I thank our Adopting Angels for opening their hearts and homes for the unconditional love of a CHHS shelter pet. I thank our Be PAWsitive volunteer team for the priceless gift of their time and compassion. I thank our donors, supporters and Board of Directors, for without their generous and charitable spirit of giving and tireless fundraising, there would be no Humane Society. I thank all the local residents who have placed their faith and trust in us this year to spay/neuter their pets with The H.E.A.R.T. of North Carolina. And I thank our incredible, dedicated Team CHHS - the greatest staff working at an animal shelter anywhere.

The past two years have been amazing. But when we announced in January that our theme for 2014 would be "Reach Higher", we weren't kidding. Just wait until you see what we have in store to save more lives and find more forever homes in the months ahead.

Thank you so much for making me feel so welcome in this beautiful and blessed community. For not only have we found homes for hundreds of animals in the past two years... I found my home, too.

For the animals,
