Cashiers Highlands Humane Society Stop-N-Adopt &
"Touching the Face of History: The Story of the Plott Hound, North Carolina's Official State Dog" 

Saturday, August 29th from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. the Cashiers Highlands Humane Society will have a Stop-N-Adopt event in the Hudson Library parking lot. That same day speaker Bob Plott will present, “Touching the Face of History: The Story of the Plott Hound, North Carolina’s Official State Dog” at 11:00 a.m. in the Community Room.   This program is made possible by a grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

"Bob Plott is a North Carolina native who can trace his family roots in the Old North State back to 1750 when his great-great-great grandfather, Johannes George Plott, arrived here with five of the family's prized hunting dogs. The dogs would later become an officially recognized UKC and AKC breed and were designated as the official state dog of NC in 1989, as well as being widely recognized as the premier big game hunting dog in America today.” 

For more information please visit Bob Plott's website or the North Carolina Humanities Council.
