The local no-kill animal shelter here in our hometown of Asheville, NC is Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, a pet haven we stand behind with all four paws. As a non-profit their organization creates a temporary home for up to 100 animals in need at any given time, providing them a healthy space to grow both mentally and physically while awaiting their forever home. Like most non-profits, this small team has pushed and pawed their way year after year to raise awareness and grow their team of animal loving community members that generously donate their time and hearts to make such a necessary space a reality for us all.
Last year, we happily whipped up a sweet tag for their furry friends in waiting to wear, giving them even more of a sense of belonging and showcasing their solidarity as temporarily Brother Wolf loved yet soon to be yours. We’re happy to say that we’ve raised over $600 and counting for this awesome team of pet protectors through tag donations from supporters since. Right now after you purchase a tag for your best friend through our site, there is an option to donate to Brother Wolf and we hope you’ll find it in your hearts to do so.
|This Sunday, April 13, we’ll also be joining them for their annual ‘Run for the Paws 5K Run & 1 Mile Walk’. Come sniff around and join in the fun even if you’re not running for the hills. There will be plenty of doggie games to enjoy, live music to shake a tail feather at, free nail trims and more. |
Plus, we have a surprise to share with you at our booth! What could it be? You’ll have to join us to see! All the details and furry fun here: https://www.bwar.org/runforthepaws/
|Bella Bean & T-Dawg from Dog Tag Art ran the ‘Race for the Paws’ just last year. The warmest day that spring, the sun warmed up the skies to almost seventy degrees, a temperature that miss Bella Bean was rather unprepared for coming out of her winter slumber. Around mile two T-Dawg noticed that they had picked up the pace and shouted words of encouragement back to her sweet speed racer when someone shot by and let her know that she actually running with only an empty leash. She laughed and backtracked to the cool wooded shelter not far behind to find that Bella Bean had found a cozy pool of water to rest in. They finished the race none-the-less with record time, happy to have supported such a noble cause and stand in solidarity amongst their loving local friends. |
