Greg Biffle at the pole for effort to build animal shelter

Friends of the Animals has released plans to build a no-kill animal shelter and education center. At the lead on the project is NASCAR driver Greg Biffle and his wife Nicole Biffle, who is president of the organization’s board of directors.

The proposed 1.5-acre center south of Statesville, NC will include a low-cost spay-neuter clinic.

I’ll admit I don’t follow NASCAR racing very closely at all. But I do pull for Biffle and respect the couple’s efforts in helping homeless animals.
