LASS News

May, 2021 - Indian Land is sad to say good-bye to Carolina Country Store on Highway 521. It’s been a wonderful resource for horse lovers and pet owners for the past 20 years. We wish the store owners, Kimberly and Jeff Galindo, a happy retirement.

After their dispersal sale, the Galindos very graciously donated the balance of their pet supply inventory to the Lancaster County Animal Shelter. Almost $5,000 worth of dog food, cat food, medications, cones, toys, harnesses…..SO many things that the shelter needs. What a windfall for the animals. LASS cannot say it enough ---THANK YOU, Kimberly and Jeff!
