Aye Caramba!

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Sarge's! A little purr-itos with a twist!

Neo Cantina (formerly La Paz) of Biltmore Village in Asheville is sponsoring this fiesta at Sarge's new adoption center at 256 Industrial Park Drive in Waynesville. Please help spread the word for us! This fundraiser will raise money for Sarge's extensive boarding expenses. We cannot save an animal from the shelter without respite. Without a shelter of our own, we rely heavily on the community for foster care and often times we pay for boarding. $10 for Adults and $5 for children 10 and under.
