NASCAR Driver Greg Biffle and the Friends of the Animals Ink Land Deal with Langtree Group for Animal Sanctuary
Mooresville, NC (March 23, 2010) - Friends of the Animals (www.friendsoftheanimals.net), a non-profit group co-chaired by NASCAR driver Greg Biffle and his wife Nicole created to promote responsible pet ownership, provide low cost spay-neuter services and promote the adoption of homeless animals, has inked a valuable land deal with Langtree Group for 1.5 acres in the lakeside development. Langtree at the Lake is located off Interstate 77 North at exit 31. Friends of the Animals plans to use the land to build a no-kill animal and education center that will include a low-cost spay and neuter clinic. The group hopes the center will be open within the next two years.
The animal sanctuary will house 150 animals; 60 cats and 90 dogs, which will be available for adoption. The animal education and community center will be available to churches, community groups and the public for birthday parties and meetings. The developers at Langtree at the Lake have worked with Friends of the Animals to allow them to use their green space for a community dog park and walking trails.
The Langtree at the Lake community will be home to lakeside condominiums and village-center lofts with sweeping lake views and easy water access. The mixed use development will offer access to exclusive specialty shoppes and boutiques, small cafe's and unique restaurants, as well as Class-A office space. There will be 40 acres of Green Space: 2 1/2 miles of walking trails around a man-made lake and over a mile of beautiful Lake Norman shoreline.
"Friends of the Animals searched for several years to find a location that would be easy for the public to access. If the location is easy and friendly, we know it will increase adoptions and spay/neuters for the animals," says Nicole Biffle, President of the Friends of the Animals Board.
Friends of the Animals is working with several other rescue groups and shelters in the area with the goal of sharing resources to benefit all animals in the area.
"Our Board is excited to take this step toward reaching our goal of saving cats and dogs through adoption and by providing a low cost spay/neuter option to the public," says Biffle.
