The Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society fed 112 animals in the community this past weekend with a free pet food drive-thru at the Cashiers-Glenville Recreation Center.
More than 1,700 pounds of dog food, cat food, and treats were distributed to animal-loving families in need. Based on zip codes provided by donation recipients, pet owners from Cashiers, Cullowhee, Glenville, Highlands, Sapphire, Sylva, Tuckasegee, and Webster all traveled to the event for much-needed food assistance.
Also, at the event, pet owners for 39 animals signed up for the CHHS low-cost and free spay/neuter program.
During the past eight years, CHHS has provided subsidized and free spay/neuter for nearly 4,000 animals, significantly reducing the overpopulation of homeless pets in our community.
