The caring mountain community of Big Canoe is at it again spreading the love to the area's four-legged furry friends. Residents of this close-knit Georgia neighborhood are known for rolling up their selves and getting involved. It is not uncommon to see entire families lending a helping hand to their fellow neighbor. It is a genuine culture of giving that sets the Big Canoe real estate development apart from others.

Earlier this year, fund raising efforts through the Big Canoe Chapel provided more than 130 scholarships to college bound students.  So it’s no surprise residents are advocating for a segment of the population that often goes ignored. The stray cats and dogs throughout the Blue Ridge Mountains seen wandering the streets, desperately searching food and shelter to survive.  

The Big Canoe Animal Rescue, along with concerned citizens, are banding together to improve the lives of these less fortunate animals.  Big Canoe Animal Rescue is a no kill canine rescue.  More than 50 volunteers work around the clock at the shelter 7 days a week as they care for homeless cats and dogs.  Among the many services the rescue provides is food, veterinary care and shelter.  They also offer pet adoptions.  Pets are a great addition to families.  According to the American Pet Product’s Association, Baby Boomers lead the way in pet ownership.  

There’s a lot that Baby Boomers have to offer to pets and the mountain community at large.  Love, companionship and a majestic place to live. Often times, that’s why residents are attracted to Big Canoe real estate development because they know they can have it all and make a difference.

Living in Big Canoe offers other great amenities too, like mountain golf courses for avid golfers and off leash dog parks for those who prefer to get their exercise in with a leisurely brisk walk with their pet.  The Wildcat Dog Parks are two off leash dog parks that offer nearby residents of the rustic mountain homes a pet-friendly haven to enjoy time with their four-legged friends.
