Sarah has lived in Charlotte for 15 years and has a lovely tabby cat named Cool Hand Luke who walked into her life after he was abandoned in her neighborhood. Sarah started giving monthly to HSC in honor of her rescue kitty, Miss NoNa who gave her endless joy during her lifetime. Sarah continues to give to HSC because of her love for Cool Hand Luke and because she wants other people to have the opportunity to love a special cat or dog. Sarah most appreciates that HSC serves animals who might not otherwise have chances at long, happy, and loving lives and is thankful for the work that HSC does for those animals every day. She encourages everyone to adopt a rescue animal! Thank you to Sarah and all of our monthly donors! Earn Your Gold Star for Giving this September!
