Happy Holidays to everyone on the SARG list. We have missed seeing all of you at the various events that have been canceled throughout 2020, but here is to a new beginning in 2021! The new year is only a few days away now and with it always brings a sense of new possibilities and hope for the future. May this carry us to a more healthy and prosperous 2021.
Even through these trying, times SARG has outdone themselves once again. The yard sale was a great hit and brought us some needed money for the animals. All of your donations went a very long way and please know that what we were unable to sell we donated to other organizations such as Open Arms Ministry, Holiday Bureau, KARM, Goodwill, Bryson's Closet, The River Knoxville and other various church groups. Thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts.
When I look to the New Year and what SARG is doing I am so thankful for all of you that make our organization possible. With any luck SARG will be able to hold our gala in the fall. I've got my fingers crossed.
The picture above is of my little foster Kitty Desi. He is the sweetest you ever could meet and he would love to play a game of fetch with someone for Christmas.
Thank you all once again and happy holidays- Jennifer Robinson

A special shout out to Mr. John Mullins for the use of his building for our annual yard sale and for allowing us the time to extend into December! We couldn't have this event with out his support. 👏🏼
LL(Lovely Lucy) Bean—kitty companion of Sheryl Wurl—crossed the Rainbow Bridge in late October. Sheryl & her senior kitty Bean were together only six months, but Bean had a good life for that time & Sheryl had a loving fur friend.
Scout crossed the rainbow bridge on Dec. 16th - words can not express the loss Tim Waller is feeling. Tim saw Scout on the SARG website and drove from Clearwater FL to Atlanta to get her. That was over 14 years ago and she had been by his side ever since. Tim gave Scout a wonderful, love filled life and she will be missed by everyone who knew her and especially missed by the SARG family.
Apologies to Bonnie
and the Cotners --
the photo we displayed last month was the wrong Bonnie!
The picture above is of 3 wonderful SARG board members. Sharon Bates, Jan Baker, and Retired Brigadier General Jack Archer. Three of some of the best people you could ever meet and I'm so lucky to call them friends.
Here is Dundee, one of my previous fosters. Now enjoying his forever home! Judith sent me these great pictures of Dundee "helping" dad! I love it! Dundee is really getting into the Christmas Spirit. He says, "I needs this Christmas tree too."
