Saluda Outfitters is proud to announce that $2,200 was raised during its May 15 benefit music festival to help the Blue Ridge Humane Society provide much needed services to rescued animals in our area. This was possible due to the cooperation of the City of Saluda and its residents and all the bands and other volunteers who graciously gave of their time and talents to make it a huge success. That money will help the nonprofit move forward with services to help animals and animal caregivers after not being able to fund raise during the pandemic.
