Stella Needs a Home

Stella Needs a Home

Georgia Canine Rescue and Rehabilitation, a non-profit rescue that focuses on the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of shelter dogs, has several dogs that are ready for adoption and are looking for homes. 

Stella is a very quiet Bichon Frise who needs a loving home. Stella, like all the dogs at GCRR, has been full 'vetted,' which means shots, microchipped and fixed. She came from an out of state shelter, and has a cataract in her right eye. A sweet personality, Stella may take a bit to warm up to her new owners, but once she does, it is certain that she will become a forever companion.

She is five years old and likes the quiet life.

Soldier Runs for The Greer Foundation

Soldier Runs for The Greer Foundation

The Greer Foundation today announced that Sergeant Rolando Martin, a U.S. Army Reserve soldier, has completed his mission to finish one of the toughest foot races in sports.

Martin, 40, is an ultra-endurance athlete from Miami, Florida who trained for six months to run the World's Longest Beach Run - the Destin 50 Beach Ultra on February 19, 2012. He placed 7th this year in what many say were unbearable wind, sand, and freezing temperatures forcing many seasoned endurance runners out of the race.
No stranger to the Destin 50 Beach Ultra, Martin placed 12th last year helping raise money for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. This year, he ran to help support the mission of The Greer Foundation and inspire others to climb to glory.
