Ultimate's Random Acts of Ice Cream @ Brother Wolf's Adoption Day, Spring 2015

Brother Wolf Animal Rescue had an Adoption Day at Urban Orchard in West Asheville. We at Ultimate Ice Cream, being animal lovers, decided it was the perfect opportunity to sprinkle a little Ice Cream Love on some of our unsuspecting town-folk! So, during the afternoon, we decended upon the crowd to hand out Love in frozen form to those pledging to love some sweet, needy animals. It was a beautiful day, we had a blast, and people were happy to see us!

Thanks Brother Wolf and Urban Orchard!
