North of Little River and to the east of Lake Allatoona sit the neighborhoods and communities within the readership area of Sixes Living magazine. This portion of Cherokee County was once home to the goldrush, but in modern times there is a little boy that has a heart of gold! His heart beats for animals that do not have a home. Don’t take it from us, take it from Rob Macmillan. In his own words, he is, “On a mission to help shelter dogs and cats.”
Each month Rob shares about two pets that are in need of a home. You can visit the pets featured in the Rob’s Rescues column (found on page 31 of the November Sixes Living Magazine) at the Cherokee County Animal Shelter. The shelter is located at 1015 Univeter Road within the Sixes Living readership area. However, the pets that Rob features are not the only ones that he is able to help.
With his heart of gold, Rob donates his writing ability to share about animals in need, and he donates his time and money. His initiative currently has him working closely with the Pet Buddies Food Pantry. The Pet Buddies Food Pantry is a non-profit that assists families in transition and in need to provide for their pets. Rob is currently collecting donations for Pet Buddies Food Pantry at the BridgeMill Animal Hospital at 9560 Bells Ferry Road. Additionally, Rob has helped Pet Buddies Food Pantry through the purchase of a dog house and dog bed.
We’re just so impressed with Rob’s initiative to see a need and fill a need at his age. We’d like to send him a virtual high five for acting on his passion to make a difference in this world. If you’d like to make a difference, don’t forget to drop off your donations at the BridgeMill Animal Hospital. There are also plenty of other opportunities to donate time and resources in Cherokee County.
