Visit to Cotton Branch Animal Sanctuary (Rain Make Up Day 2)

We were rained out of the 8/17 Visit.  We are scheduling 2 visits in the next month to make sure everyone gets a chance to go.

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.

    I will try and be at starbucks around 7:45. The cafe sounds like it might be a good place to indulge. I'm in.

    Hi Ladies....I am sorry to have to cancel for tomorrow, but I have to fill in at work tomorrow. I work with animals and it's hard when someone else calls out. :( I hope to make it the next time. Have fun.

    Hello Elaine & Cheri!! I am planning on getting the following which were suggested by Stacey: watermelons, apples, tomatoes, carrots, and vanilla wafers for the animals. I will be at Starbucks on Saturday at 8 AM. My vehicle will comfortably hold 4 people. I think there is at least one other person who will be coming. I hope we can catch dinner at the Good Life Cafe in West Columbia (raw vegan). Thanks!!

    How long will you be out there? If I can make it work I'll RSVP! Thanks!

      Hope you can come, Shannon. Right now we have 4 people which would be perfect for carpooling. I should have a Jeep type vehicle which comfortably seats 4. The reason I say "should" is that I am currently driving a rental because my car has been totaled :(. Still in a little shock over that because I didn't think the damage was that severe. But she was an old girl. I'll miss her :(. Anyway, hope this works for you, Shannon.

      Addendum: it would be 4 with you, Shannon :).
