Honey Hive – A Vacation Escape

Have you ever spent hours on the internet looking for a nice vacation escape? With me, I am always looking for somewhere unique, relaxing, but with activities close by.  Recently, we completed a metal art (shown below) piece for  the owners of the Honey Hive Cabins, located in the Wears Valley in Tennessee.  Taking some time to look at the Honey Hive posting, I soon learned this was a great place for a vacation escape.

Also, a quick drive to Pigeon Forge and Cades Cove.  This is a perfect spot to relax and escape the daily grind of life.

Whether looking for a week long escape or time away for a long weekend.  Check out the Honey Hive Cabins and the beauty of the Great Smokey Mountains.

Heart of Alabama. Save. Rescue. Adopt.

If you are familiar with the Florence/Killen, area of North Alabama, you may be familiar with HASRA. Likewise, you know the good work they do.  If not, let me take a minute to tell you about this grand organization.  You may not see the facility when looking for it as it sits off highway 72 (Lee Highway) hidden behind Arx Mortis.  However, it is ideally located with lots of outside area for the animals they rescue.

A Non-Profit Organization – HASRA

In brief, HASRA is a 501c(3) corporation established in 2009 by Debbie Rappuhn. HASRA stands for Heart of Alabama. Save. Rescue. Adopt.  Animals are rescued from high kill shelters by HASRA together with aiding communities with strays.  Their first action with a stray is to find its owner if there is one. Unfortunately, many strays are abandoned pets.

Educate the Public

Therefore, public awareness is needed to bring attention to the fact that animal shelters are often overwhelmed.  For example:

  • Pet overpopulation in the United States is a serious problem
  • Unwanted pets are often abandoned
  • Pets are often not spayed or neutered and produce more unwanted offspring’s

Helping Animal Shelters

Therefore, HSRA is committed to supporting the animal shelters in North Alabama. They are a No-Kill organization dedicated to the protection of animals that have been abandoned, neglected, abused, relinquished or found homeless.   Since its inception, HASRA has saved and found homes for 4000 animals. This type of organization relies both on volunteers and the generosity of donors. Can You Help?

Lastly, you should visit HASRA. There you will find a happy facility where rescued animals are cared for in a special way.  The animals have areas to run free and take off lease walks.  Volunteers take time to play and interact with animals. It is a fun place.  You will find happy animals.

Above all check out their website for further information. HASRA is a wonderful organization.  Maybe you have a love for animals and are looking to volunteer.  Do you have spare time for a worthy cause?
