Our county animals wanted to do an extra special shout-out? bark-out? meow-out? to some humans helping renovate the rescue building this month!
We weren‘t going to argue with them. (Yes, we know the animals can’t argue back, but we like to play along with them.)
But really, our team thinks the WORLD of all of the following amazing, selfless people volunteering their time and donating their resources. Things are moving right along and we could NOT do it without you!
Our county animals, our team, our supporters- we all thank those helping the renovations move along smoothly this month!
A community coming together to serve a purpose for a mission we hope to accomplish. Let’s do this!

Our county animals got lucky enough to have these guys helping oversee the rescue building renovations and maintenance! So far, our team has learned the only thing the guys can’t do is listen to a chihuahua get a vaccine! Good hearted locals just willing to lend a hand. They help us daily and strive to make the rescue building a sustainable location. All raised in Elk Park, they understand and value the historical building they’ve each grown up making memories around.
Daniel and Tyler’s father also served as the mayor of Elk Park, and was the last mayor to occupy and serve from the building- which served as the Elk Park Town Hall from the late 1800’s through the early 2000’s
Our primary goal is to establish an animal services facility in Avery County. We currently assist by helping animals that animal control would be taking care of and strive to help where we can within our limitations of the law.
Our organization began in February 2021 with the hopes of showing the true need for an animal services facility to be funded and built in Avery County.
Most of the dogs and cats we take in are injured, sick or abandoned. We are a volunteer based group and rely on our generous donors who help us continue our mission.
