There are just under two weeks left to renew your transponders for 2023.  Please do not wait on this.  Here’s what you need to know:

·   The fee this year for transponders is $35 per vehicle. This can be paid in cash or check at the Front Gate or with credit card at Admin.  Two transponders are included with your annual fees.

·   All transponders need to be renewed, even the two included with your annual fees.  The primary reason for this is to ensure all vehicle and transponder information is current and correct.  Renewing your transponders can be done in one of two ways:

1.  Bring the vehicles with transponders being renewed to the front gate for inspection by Public Safety.

2.  Complete the following form and email back to public safety or drop it off at the Front Gate. These forms can also be picked up at the Front Gate or Admin.  Resident, Vehicle, & Transponder Info

The Ancient Ways of the Cherokee and How We Can Use Them Today shares valuable lessons and skills from native people who inhabited this continent long before European explorers landed on its shores.

Due to Mother Nature’s wind last Saturday Night, our Open House on Sunday was canceled. The Open House will be rescheduled to happen in the near future.

If you want to meet any of the sweet babies we have at the shelter, we can always set up a time to visit.  You don’t have to wait for an open house event to visit the shelter.
Please call or text 678-414-1047 to set up a visit, answer questions, donations, or if you want to volunteer.

You can’t buy LOVE, but you can ADOPT it! ❤️
