Holiday Pet Photo Contest Deadline is January 13

The next few weeks are a perfect time for capturing the personality of your pet in photos in festive costumes or a holiday environment. “Choose a few of your favorites and enter them into Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation’s Holiday Pet Photo Contest,” said Brenn Rohman, event coordinator. Deadline for entries is January 13, 2018.

Sarge’s Downtown Dog Walk fun starting earlier in 2017

Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation (Sarge’s) will start its 12th annual Downtown Dog Walk at 9am, an hour earlier than in the past. The change was made for the safety and comfort of both dogs and humans. Sarge’s estimates that all events will be over by 11am to avoid the hottest parts of the day.

Blessing of the Pets

The Fourth Annual Blessing of the Pets will take place on Saturday, September 24, 2016, on Hendersonville’s Laurel Park Green. All will be welcome to bring pets of any kind to be blessed by Pastor Richard Weidler of the First Congregational Church of Hendersonville.
