I'm very excited about this announcement, friends. As you may or may not know, my mother is the president of Lee Shore Rescue, which is an animal rescue here in North Carolina. Lee Shore specializes in rehabilitating animals who are not immediately adoptable due to age, abuse, illness, or injury, and training them for successful lives as companion animals. This might sound pretty run-of-the-mill for a rescue, but actually, in the rescue world, the need of homeless pets is so overwhelming that babies and rehab cases are often overlooked because they need extra time, and the numbers are simply so staggering that everyone is struggling to help as many as they can, as fast as they can. Lee Shore is there catching the tough cases that tend to fall through the cracks.
Lee Shore is an amazing organization doing sorely needed work, and I'm thrilled to announce that I will be partnering with them this weekend at the Downtown Asheville Festival of the Arts. 15% of my profits this weekend will go to Lee Shore's Maternity House, which services pregnant and nursing dogs and cats as well as orphaned kittens and puppies, and their Rehabilitation Center, which rehabs adult dogs and cats following abuse, neglect, and physical and emotional trauma. The money will be used to purchase medical equipment, food, and enrichment objects for the animals.
Downtown Asheville Festival of the Arts will be held this weekend, July 7th and 8th, from 10am to 5pm each day, at Pack Square Park Downtown. I hope to see you there! Let's save some lives together.
