6th Annual Great Harvest Bread Company's Animal Kneads Day!

Hi Animal lovers and activists! With tax season over, I visited the Charlotte Meck Animal Control facility at Bryum and asked how I could help. Obviously this event is a no-brainer! I scheduled at 1:30 so we can meet and "break bread" together. I look forward to getting to know more animal lovers/activists!!!!

I will be at the entrance of Harvest Bread from 1:15 to 1:45.  My cell is[masked]-1775.  I look forward to meeting everyone.

11 AM to 6 PM
Admission: $10.00
Benefiting: Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Animal Care & Control Public Spay Neuter Clinics
Animal Kneads Day is Animal Care & Control's largest annual fundraiser with all proceeds benefiting our Free Public Spay & Neuter Fund.

The event is held at Great Harvest Bread Company with 16 local vendors participated along with 16 businesses in the shopping center. During the month of August, Great Harvest Bread Company opens on a Sunday, which is not a regular business day, and the owners and staff donate their time and the ingredients to make hundreds of loaves of bread.

As a municipal shelter, Animal Care & Control cannot turn away any animal, regardless of the shelter's capacity. Last year alone, due to severe overpopulation of unwanted animals, the shelter had to euthanize 12,632 cats and dogs (in FY09), many of which would have been adoptable. To help reduce the number of animals coming into the shelter, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Animal Care & Control Division (CMPD-ACCD) instituted a Free Public Spay & Neuter Assistance Program. This program is funded solely through donations and grants, which makes Animal Kneads Day our most important annual fundraiser.

    I would love to attend but am working on a project to help protect the wolves in the states that are allowing the hunting, trapping, and gassing of them since they have been taken off of the endangered species list.

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.
