Visit to Cotton Branch Animal Sanctuary

  • Starbucks Coffee

    7250 Rivers Ave , North Charleston, SC (map)

  • Join us for our summer trip to Cotton Branch Animal Sanctuary in Leesville, SC.   It's about 2 hours west of Charleston, near Columbia.  We will be meeting at the Starbucks on Rivers Ave at 8am on Saturday morning so the group can carpool. Carpooling is optional, but we would still like to leave town around the same time.  If you would like to meet us at Cotton Branch, I expect we will arrive around 10:15 - 10:30 am.

     

    I have volunteered us to help, so please wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.  Also we advise bringing the following:

    - WATER (and possibly a cooler for it.  It will be hot)

    - WORK GLOVES

    - SUNSCREEN

    - BUG REPELLANT

    - HATS

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Please check out their website and Facebook page.  DONATE if you are financially able to do so.  They do wonderful work and they need support.  They will also be taking time out of their already busy day to give us a tour.

    Jan said we can do next weekend AND September, so we may be smaller groups, but it will work out for everyone :)

    So, why don't I set up a second meetup for 9/7 and make you host, Darlene?

    How is next Saturday for everyone?

      If most ppl can do that weekend someone else can host

      I had thought about that (its being the Blackfish opening weekend). It's hard to come up with a good day that works for everyone. If next Saturday worked for other people, I think that would be great if you could go. My next open Saturday (after 9/7) sadly is not until 11/16. :(. Too much going on.

    **** TRIP CANCELLED **** I'm so sorry but we will have to reschedule! Jan (who runs Cotton Branch) thinks that even the animals will be hiding out from all the RAIN. We will plan another attempt soon!!!

    Any idea what time we'd be back? I work at 4 and not sure if we'd make it back in time...

      You could drive separate and leave in time to get to work. You would have a few hours there.

    Yay! I'm so excited for this. Thanks for organizing Stacy :)

      I'm pretty sure this was a C.A.R.E. event that I just posted on the internet.... I appreciate all the thanks though. You guys are sweet.

    I also have a station wagon that can seat 4 plus me. I just had brake work done so I think it's safe :).

    Members of Columbia Veg will be meeting us there for our Visit/Volunteer Day. They may be meeting for lunch in Columbia afterwards, so it will be an option to join them! https://www.facebook.com/ColumbiaVeg

    I will like to offer to carpool in my Subaru wagon--nicely seats four and gets about 20 mpg I think. Unfortunately, I am still uncertain if I have obligation in the DC area that weekend.... Please "pencil me in" to carpool?!? I'd love to share conversation during the commute with locals involved in vegan advocacy or animal rights activism. THANKS!

    They even have an etsy store where people donate vintage jewelry and 70% of the proceeds go towards the animals. Since January they have made $350 from selling twenty pieces! We should look through our jewlery to see if there is anything we can bring to donate! :)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
