Recently I read an article on HuffPost Green about the staggering number of people who desert their companion animals during the holidays. Many animal shelters report that they see an increase in the number of people who abandon their animals. This honestly just breaks my heart in a million pieces. I’m currently fostering a dog, Maya with the Asheville Humane Society and although I don’t know her story/why her people left her, I can tell you that she has the biggest heart on the planet and she just wants to be loved.
I can across this adorable poem – please share on Facebook!

Cruelty-free restaurant VegHeads, which currently has a location in Asheville, NC, makes its way further south with a new Georgia location!
Savannah, GA is about to get a new addition to its vegan scene with the Asheville-based, cruelty-free restaurant VegHeads opening in the southern city this March. David Rowland, the founder of VegHeads, notes that the North Carolina establishment thrived on its college student clientele, and the Savannah College of Art and Design—along with the city’s eclectic population—makes the town a great place to start a new location. “We took a look at towns with great liberal arts schools, and SCAD’s doing so great, getting so big,” says Rowland to savannahnow.com, “There’s such an ethnic blend of people in Savannah … It’s right up our alley.” The Savannah restaurant will offer menu items from smoothies to delectable wheat-free options.
