HERO PET SPOTLIGHT: FRECKLES – This three-year-old male American Blue Heeler mix was surrendered to the Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society in August 2017. Freckles is very well-mannered and walks wonderfully on a leash. He gets along with other dogs and quickly warms up to human visitors. As a CHHS Hero Pet, the adoption fee for Freckles is only $25 which includes already being neutered, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccinations and flea/heartworm preventative, and his adoption also comes with 30 days of free pet health insurance, a free starter bag of food, and a free ID tag. “Hero Pets” like Freckles are the longer-term CHHS residents who are happy, healthy and completely adoptable – they’re just a little pickier when choosing their human companion. Be a hero in the life of a longer-term shelter animal and come adopt Freckles today!

The Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society is located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina on 200 Gable Drive in Sapphire, 1 ½ miles east of the Cashiers Ingles supermarket in between Cedar Creek Club and Lonesome Valley on Highway 64 East. Our no-kill shelter is open 10am-4pm Monday through Saturday. For more information, please call CHHS at (828)743-5752.
