Over 40 years ago....
In 1979, my wife and I moved to a very rural Cherokee County. The nearest animal hospital was many miles away and homeless, neglected animals were everywhere. The County’s animal shelter, a wooden shed, was not fit for storing tools. We were at a loss, when in front of an old grocery store, we met two elderly ladies having a bake sale, soliciting membership in CCHS, and fund raising for a new animal shelter.
A dream of better pet care in Cherokee County was born.
