The Blue Ridge Lodging Association supports the Humane Society of Blue Ridge with donation form 2011 Blues and BBQ Festival proceeds…
On Wednesday, September 28, 2011 the Blue Ridge Lodging Association donated $1,000 to the Blue Ridge Humane Society at the Fannin County Chamber of Commerce, as an offering of thanks and support for their ongoing contributions to our city and community. The money will be used to further the success of the spay/ neuter program and toward the new building program. For those interested in adopting a new pet, or to offer your services as a volunteer, please contact the Humane Society at 706 – 632- 4357 to help continue enriching the lives of our pets and pet owners.
The Blue Ridge Humane Society has been an integral part of the Blue Ridge community for years, providing abandoned, mistreated or injured animals a safe haven in which to live while waiting for a permanent, loving home. It is through events like the Fifth Annual Paws in the Park, and educational courses on a variety of pet-related topics, that they continue to pursue their goal of increasing the awareness of animal issues through public education, ending euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals, and promoting and offering affordable spay, neutering and rabies inoculation options.
