BarktoberFest – Humane Society of Blue Ridge

Community
Greetings!
We hope this note finds you well!  Despite COVID, and the changes it has brought about, we have been busier than ever at our adoption center with record numbers of adoptions of our feline and canine family members.
We hope you are following along on Facebook to see our animals happily finding their forever homes…  it is heartwarming to see!
If you are looking to adopt, please check out our Petfinder Page, it has the most accurate list of animals currently in our care.
We also wanted to let you know about an upcoming event in October, where the proceeds benefit HSBR.
 October 4th, from 1 – 5.
As you know, due to COVID and limitations on gathering sizes, in April we had to cancel Taste of Blue Ridge.  TOBR is our largest yearly fundraiser and is vital as it helps keep our adoption facility open & operating and allows us to take care of our four-legged friends.
Barktoberfest will give us an opportunity to come together, outside 😎, and enjoy the fall air with our friends & family, including the furry ones!
Tickets are $30, and that gets you two beer tickets along with a commemorative Barktoberfest solo cup koozie.  You can also enjoy live music by The Litt Family Band featuring Robbie Litt, a 50/50 Raffle, Silent Auction, and Fabulous Hotdogs by Jeff’s Hotdogs… Bring your friends and family (furry and non-furry). It is going to be FUN!!
We have tickets on sale online, just click here to get yours!  This will help us to prevent crowding at the entrance – it’s easy to do!

We also wanted to extend a warm THANK YOU for your generous and awesome support for the Carolina Carports – we were able to purchase several!
They are still on the way, as everything seems to be on backorder these days.  As soon as we get them and get them set up, we will be sure to send some pictures!  Thanks again!

Pet of the Week! Checkers

Community
pet of the week

BKP has special guest Checkers on the show this morning! Checkers is an adorable 10 month old, believed to be lab mix puppy. He is ready to be adopted by a loving family. Every person he sees he wants to say “Hi” to. He is very friendly and loving. Checkers does need to be trained on some things, but with him being treat orientated it should be fairly easy. Make and appointment today to go visit him and adopt today! Just contact the Blue Ridge Humane Society and tell them you want to meet Checkers.

 

Humane Society of Blue Ridge Supporters, due to the growing concerns must cancel the Taste of Blue Ridge event

Community, News
Taste of BR

Unfortunately, the venue is not available to reschedule anytime later this year. Taste of Blue Ridge is the largest
and most crucial fundraiser for the Humane Society of Blue Ridge (HSBR). It allows us to provide the necessary
shelter, food and medical care for our animals, support our adoption program, fund our $20 spay and neuter assist
program, distribute free pet food to needy families, and fund our TNR (trap, neuter, release) program for feral cats.
Given the financial toll this unprecedented event is having on families, we project the need to shelter abandoned
or surrendered animals will grow significantly during this crisis.

With that said, we must prioritize the health and well-being of our supporters, our volunteers, and our staff and not
place anyone at risk. If you purchased tickets, we humbly ask that you consider the purchase of your tickets to the
event as a donation to the Humane Society of Blue Ridge.

Your donations are tax-deductible as allowed by the law. Your canceled check or credit card statement is your
receipt. If you paid cash and would like a receipt sent to you, please email creativebydesign@etcmail.com. If you
were not able to attend Taste of Blue Ridge this year but wanted to, this is a great opportunity to support HSBR
and all its efforts in saving even more animals lives moving forward.

We have also taken precautionary measures at our Adoption Center and our Thrift Store.
The Adoption Center will remain closed to the public until further notice, but if you do find your perfect furry friend
through our website humanesocietyofblueridge.com – (click on PETFINDER in the top right hand corner),
call us 706-632-4357, and we can schedule a time to meet and greet.

The Thrift Store will be closed until further notice. We hope to be back in full operation as soon as possible.
Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do for HSBR. We truly appreciate your patience, your
generosity, and your continued support. Your dedication to HSBR and the cats & dogs we save is always appreciated;
especially in this challenging time.

If, however, you purchased a ticket to Taste of Blue Ridge and would prefer to get a refund, please
email cookiehsbr@etcmail.com by April 10, 2020.

We will miss seeing everyone this year at Taste of Blue Ridge and look forward to your support of this event in 2021.

If you would like to support us bearing in mind our largest annual fundraiser has been canceled, you can do so by going to this site!
