Almost as much a tradition as the holidays themselves, donation drives are in full swing this time of year. We love being able to give back to the community and support a variety of causes that directly impact the people of Asheville and Western North Carolina. Being the animal lovers that we are, the staff here at AshevilleBlog decided to help spread some holiday cheer and support a great local nonprofit all at the same time. Our elves have placed 7 boxes around town at local pet friendly businesses. On Christmas Eve we will collect all donations from each business, and drop the bounty off to the dogs and cats waiting for a new home at Brother Wolf Animal Rescue. This way, our furred friends can share in the holiday joy with receiving their own presents on Christmas day!
