Lucky Cat Thrift Store Ribbon Cutting

On Monday, April 4, the Blairsville-Union County Chamber of Commerce was pleased to hold aribbon cutting at the Lucky Cat Thrift Store located at 5933 Highway 515, East in beautiful Blairsville. Many business members and community leaders were on hand to include Janet Chapman, Department of Labor representative and Union County Sheriff Mack Mason. Many of the organizations’ volunteers were there to answer questions and greet the attendees. With fabulous home-made treats and shopping opportunities for all, the event was especially welcoming.

The thrift store provides financial assistance to the Whiskers Project which is a nonprofit 501(c)3 animal rescue organization. The Whiskers Project was founded in 2003 by Victoria Lindsey, former treasurer for the Humane Society Mountain Shelter. The organization is a nonprofit, trap, neuter-return (TNR) program that spays and neuters feral and stray cats in Union and surrounding counties in North Georgia. To date, a total of 2,500+ cats have been spayed and neutered in the North Georgia area. The thrift store also supports a specialized home that has been established for senior cats, many of which are in need of loving homes.

For more information about the Whiskers Project, please call (888) 872-9330. The Lucky Cat Thrift Store is open Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and can be reached at (706) 379-0600. Additional information is available at and be sure to visit them on their Facebook page.
