Student Organizations: ASL C.A.R.E.S. (Animals, Lawyers, and Student Coalition for Animal Rights, Education, and Safety)

of the 
Appalachian School of Law

ASL C.A.R.E.S. functions, in part, as the Buchanan County Humane Society.  

Its members: 
  • host several pet adoption events through the year, 
  • provide food to sheltered animals, 
  • help keep local animals vaccinated, 
  • offer services at the shelter, 
  • foster animals that might otherwise be euthanized, 
  • transport animals to breed-devoted adoption services, and
  • work diligently to make the local animal shelter a no-kill shelter.

Purpose Statement

This student group intends:
[T]o bring greater awareness to the ASL community about animal rights and welfare in current events. While spreading awareness, we also hope to benefit the well-being of animals in both the local and national level though fundraising events and public speeches, as well as other various events.

Membership is open to all ASL students, and the Constitution of ASL C.A.R.E.S. contains a non-discrimination clause.  Members pay annual dues of $10.

Photos feature sheltered animals available for adoption in October 2013.

And here, I am pictured with my little girl -- Lily Golightly Young (2)
-- on the day of her adoption at an ASL C.A.R.E.S. event.

I also take care of two other adopted dogs, Maria Ouspenskya Young (9) and Boo Boo Abernathy Young (3).  Big, medium, and small.  Black, brown, and white.
