Seeking A

“Sasha”

Forever Home

Sasha came to the Clarke County Humane Foundation (CCHF) as a repeat offender in October of 2015. Her owner was taken to court, and never returned to reclaim her. Sasha was sponsored by a visitor to the CCHF for spaying and placed back up for adoption. Sasha has had many visitors. But, when told that she is not good with cats and some dogs, the potential adopters become disinterested. Because of this, Sasha has remained at CCHF for the last two years. Sasha is an absolute sweetheart, and is in need of a forever home with someone willing to provide her with lots of daily exercise.

 asha is an absolute sweetheart. All that she wants is a S chance. She loves belly rubs and playing with her fuzzy squeaky toys. She loves to run and play and to chase butterflies. She also has a very unique way in talking back. When potential adopters are present, she likes to melt against her kennel in order to make them bend down to touch her.

Clarke County Humane Foundation: The Clarke County Humane Foundation is likely unknown to most folks. However, you may be aware of their well-known affiliate, the Clarke County Animal Shelter. In 2000, the Commonwealth of Virginia mandated certain standards for all county animal shelters. The Board of Supervisors at the time suggested that Supervisor Barbara Byrd put together a committee to study the feasibility of upgrading the shelter to meet these new standards. Barbara got together with Mrs. Stacy B. Lloyd, Mrs. Nancy Simpson, Mrs. Peggy Richardson-Cone, Mrs. Becky McCoy, Mrs. Leslie McLean, and Mr. George L. Ohrstrom II and formed the Board of Clarke County Humane Foundation. Very quickly it became obvious that “upgrading” the existing shelter was impractical from both a construction and economic point of view; and they decided that they would try to raise funds to build a shelter that the CCHF would own, to be operated and staffed by the county. Becky, Nancy, and Peggy were friends of Mrs. Betty Casey and they were successful when they asked her to donate ten acres of land to the Foundation. The land was a great starting point to get the Foundation up and running; it is close to the Clarke County Park. People walking the two-mile trail that wraps around the park often stop by to visit. CCHF is open seven days a week.
