Dog Walking at CHHS
by David Stroud
One more reason to love dogs – they’re remarkably faithful personal trainers who’ll work for a kind word and an occasional Milk Bone.
One of the most common New Year’s resolutions goes something like this: “Starting now, this is the year I’m going to lose weight and get into shape!”
To help you achieve that goal, there is a multi-billion-dollar industry out there anxious to separate you and your pocketbook, from gym memberships and equipment purchases, to shakes, supplements and pills.
At the Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society, we have a better idea, and it won’t cost you a single penny. Plus, you can enjoy clean, fresh air, take in the wondrous beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains and best of all, tap into your love of animals and what we call “unleashing your animal magnetism”.
What is this magical, no-cost way to trim a few pounds and get that heart rate going? Join the CHHS dog-walking volunteers!
Walk one of our shelter dogs throughout our beautiful rolling 10-acre campus, and you will not only achieve your fitness goals, but you will help our canines become more socialized and learn behaviors that will increase their chances of finding a forever home.
As an additional incentive, when you start as an on-site dog walker this winter you’ll be in great shape to join our CHHS Hikers for Hounds when we go off-site in the spring for group hikes all across the Plateau.
So forget all those expensive gyms and pricey equipment, and ignore those diet pills and food membership plans. Become a Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society volunteer and walk a hound, lose a pound!
Established in 1987, Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare organization located at 200 Gable Drive in Sapphire, one-and-a-half miles east of the Cashiers Ingles in between Cedar Creek Club and Lonesome Valley on Highway 64 East.
