Buncombe County Friends of Animals, Inc.
October 16, 2012
I am also a past board member and current volunteer. Asheville Humane Society owns and operates its Adoption and Education Center located next door to the Buncombe County Animal Shelter, which AHS operates under contract with the county and other municipalities. For the last two years, our county shelter has not had to euthanize a healthy, adoptable animal! What a beautiful thing to be able to say! When I first became involved 7 or 8 years ago, the shelter and AHS were at the sad facility at Lee's Creek, and the numbers of healthy animals they could not save because of overpopulation was in the high hundreds. The current statistics are just incredible, and I am so thrilled to be a part of this stellar organization. From the board, to the senior staff, to the kennel workers, you will find loving, caring professionals doing very difficult and emotional work with the highest regard for all life. We never turn our back on any animal -- we are the safety net when all other organziations have said no, sorry we're full. I will support AHS proudly and always!

Little Pearls' short films is an art form that seeks to enlighten, engage, lift and strengthen. They are films that educate, inspire, and draw deep on emotions. I especially love the dog pearls, because animals sheltering and rescue are my passion. To see the dogs romping in open fields with such great joy, and also to see "Spirit Dog" about those who have left us, was an amazing experience. I watched them over and over, and I will do so again, especially when I or a friend loses a beloved pet. The director of Little Pearls, Linda McLean, is one of the most soulful, spiritual, gracious and loving people I know. I treasure her and respect her work. She is one of the main reasons I contribute to Lillte Pearls.
