Local organizations hosted a pet adoption day event last Sunday at Eddie Lee's Macon Auto Sales on Lake Emory Road. Sunday's event was spearheaded by Kim Lee Stevenson of WNC Large Breed K-9 Rescue and included participation from the Macon County Humane Society and the Macon County Animal Control. The event was deemed the first annual Homeless Adoption Event.

Overall, nine dogs were adopted and two cats were fostered. The Macon County Humane Society will host another adoption day in April.


Dale Galloway and his family know what tragedy looks like. In 2006, the Galloways moved their two bright, young sons Connor, 12, and Aidan, 10, to Jackson County where Dale was offered a job as Smoky Mountain High School's head football coach. The family had moved often as a result of Dale's career, but this time, he and his wife, Michele, felt like maybe it would be the last time and that their boys would finish high school in the small town. Their oldest son, Connor, was an intelligent child who loved history —decorating his bedroom with with statues of Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln —and football, just like his dad, and taking care of his little brother. In August 2007, with construction on their new home complete, the family moved in, anticipating a new life with new jobs and new schools, never imagining the nightmare that would occur only months later.
