Program Recap - April 23, 2014
David Stroud was the guest speaker on August 23rd at the weekly meeting of the Rotary Club of Cashiers Valley. Stroud shared recent highlights at the CHHS no-kill shelter, which included a record number of adoptions, and nearly 200 low-cost spay/neuters already in 2014 with the new mobile medical/rescue vehicle, the H.E.A.R.T. of North Carolina. Stroud also unveiled a sneak peek of a new proposed canine adoption center that will provide much-needed additional capacity to save more lives and find more forever homes.
Jodie Cook, Assistant Governor of Rotary, had this to say about the presentation: “Pets are people too – just ask CHHS Executive Director David Stroud, who has established the Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society as a leading and innovative organization.” David’s presentation to Cashiers Rotary welled a tear in every eye as memories of a pet or favorite animal came to mind. The planning, capabilities and outreach programs David has developed add to a 27-year-old organization in Cashiers to ensure a future for those little friends who become lost or abandoned.
