We mentioned it in our “Coming in 2017….” post, now it’s here! This will be a permanent feature after the first of the year every Thursday! Check out first edition below with Lewis Mesta’s 1966 Ford Mustang!
The 2nd Annual Cruisin’ For Paws Cruise In to raise money for Rabun County Georgia’s Paw’s For Life, a no kill animal shelter, was a huge success! We raised $3706 dollars for Paws For Life! Several dogs were also adopted! We had just over 80 cars! A big thank you to all the volunteers, sponsors, people who donated items for the silent auction, The Eric Leach Band for coming to play at the very last minute, Clayton Police Chief Lindsey Owens for all the help, and most of all, everyone who came out, gave the money, and help support the cause!

Don’t forget to come out and support the 2nd Annual Cruisin’ For Paws Car Show this weekend in Clayton, Georgia!
A little rain and a little wind couldn’t keep a good cause down in the mountains of Georgia! Mountain City, Georgia was the site of the Cruisin’ For Paws Car & Bike Show presented by S&S Auto Parts, Rebel Racing & Kustom Paint, War Pony Customs, JDSMotorsports.com and Fastlane Oil & Lube. All proceeds were to benefit Rabun Paws 4 Life the new organization in charge of reopening the former Boggs Mountain Animal Shelter. We were successful in raising $3,000 dollars for Paws 4 Life! A little sunshine and warm weather and we might have done twice that amount but we will take it! Our four legged pals are sure glad to have it!
A big thanks to everyone who made cakes, donated silent auction items, and door prizes for the raffle.
We had Bobby Wallace on hand to provide live music along with bluegrass band Carmel Ridge.
Because of the Mountain City Police department braving the wind and rain all day traffic went as well as could be expected with it being the middle of leaf season. Although it was backed up a little ways, there were no accidents and everyone got home safe.
Also a special thanks to everyone who braved the cold and rain to help sell food, cakes, silent auction items, raffle tickets, helped park cars and whatever else needed to be done!
Here are the award winners! All of the awards were custom made by the sponsors!
50-50 Drawing Winner
Bob Parker of Franklin, NC. Special thanks to Bob for donating his share of the 50-50 winnings back to the cause! If your in need of carpet, visit him online at www.mrbobscarpet.com!
Two dogs were adopted into new homes and several new foster homes were located! Along with around a dozen bags of dog and cat food, not to mention the $3,000 dollars!
All and all I’d say it was a successful day for Rabun Paws 4 Life and the animals of Rabun County!
