TOTAL BARKNESS: The CHHS Solar Eclipse Adoption & Viewing Party

On Monday, August 21, 2017, the Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society (CHHS) will be in the direct path of a total solar eclipse. Starting at noon, CHHS will be hosting a special adoption event and viewing party with the shelter pets to commemorate this extraordinary and historic event. The celebration is called “Total Barkness”.

The start of the partial eclipse begins at 1:07pm and ends at 4:01pm, and for 2 minutes and 23 seconds beginning at 2:36pm, a total solar eclipse will occur – the sky will turn pitch black, the air will cool, and stars will be visible in the middle of the day. The last time a total solar eclipse crossed from one coast to the other of the continental United States was June 8, 1918.

“There are several events in the area celebrating the upcoming total solar eclipse,” said David Stroud, CHHS Executive Director. “But there’s only one event where you can join local residents and howl at the sun. That’s Total Barkness at the Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society”.

Eclipse viewing glasses and collector’s edition t-shirts will be on sale that day, with all proceeds benefitting the animals at the no-kill shelter. For more information, please call 828-743-5752.
