“We especially support the Foothills Humane Society because of their policy on placing all animals in loving homes. We were thrilled when we heard that we had won the ‘non-door door prize,’ the pet portrait by Joan MacIntyre.”

Hugh and Sally chose to feature their two dogs in the painting. Both dogs are rescues, which again demonstrates their support of FHS’ mission. Sidney Lanier is a beautiful brendle pitbull/boxer mix. They found him as a puppy half dead from starvation living in a water pipe at Lake Lanier. He is 3 years old now. He loves to take walks and play with his brother, Dobbin P. McRatt, a black terrier mix. Dobbin was found in Pacolet four years ago when he was 1 year old. He was running loose and had almost been hit by cars several times before the rescue by the Hursey family. Both are lucky dogs.

Foothills Humane Society is a 501 © 3 organization. FHS is an open-admission, adoption-guarantee animal welfare organization serving the rural foothills of Polk County, North Carolina and northern Greenville and Spartanburg counties of South Carolina.
