If you are also in the market for a new vehicle, especially one that will allow you to safety transport your new best friend to the beach, to events and anywhere else you want to go, you can do both at the same time.

DFW Rescue Me is a foster-based rescue that is all volunteer. It is based in Dallas. All dogs are spayed or neutered, are fully vaccinated and are micro chipped or will be before the adoption becomes final. All dogs will also be heartworm negative and will be on heartworm preventative. If you are looking for a puppy that is under a year, you’ll have to pick it up in person as DFW Rescue Me does not ship puppies that young.

If you don’t see a dog that you connect with at the adoption event, you can visit DFW Rescue Me’s site to fill out an application for a dog that isn’t at the Classic Chevy event. Just visit the organization’s site – dfwrescueme.org/adoption-form – to complete the form. After you complete the form, it will be forwarded to the dog’s foster home and the person caring for the dog will be in touch with you as his or her schedule allows. If you go this route, keep in mind that all those that work for the organization do so in their free time.

When shopping for a new vehicle, be sure to ask your Classic Chevrolet salesperson about the various features and additional options for each vehicle.

Spring Break Ideas

2-27-2015-SpringBreakIdeas

Instead of heading toward the typical spring break destinations, pick a place that is on your bucket list. Whether it’s the mountains, a trip through the plains or a trip to a destination near Ft. Worth – a place you’ve never visited before – get your Chevy ready and packed up for a week and a half of fun. Before you head out, be sure to call Classic Chevy to have your vehicle serviced, or if you are planning on buying a new vehicle sooner rather than later, stop by our showroom to pick out a new car, truck or SUV for the trip.

Visit the Mountains

Head east to the Cumberland Plateau and the Blue Ride Mountains of Tennessee and the Carolinas. If you head east on Interstate 40, you can stop in Memphis, Nashville, then head over to Muddy Pond, just outside of Monterey in the eastern part of middle Tennessee to pick up some Mennonite quilts and wooden home accessories.

On your way through eastern Tennessee, stop by Dollywood and visit Gatlinburg. Catch the Blue Ridge Parkway and drive it through North Carolina and into Virginia. Be sure to take plenty of breathtaking pictures at the overlooks that line the Parkway. Stop at Little Switzerland and other stops along the way.

The Beaches

If you must head to the beach during spring break, detour off the Parkway and head east to any of the beaches on the North Carolina coast. Of course, if the mountains are not your thing, travel to the beaches on the gulf in eastern Texas or in any of the other gulf states.

Getting Ready

Be sure to make reservations, especially if you are traveling to the beaches. If you are heading to the mountains, it’s always a great idea to make reservations, but you are more likely to get a hotel at the last minute in the mountains than you are at any beach.

If you want to stay at a specific place for more than a night, it’s always a good idea to make reservations so you don’t end up having to change rooms or move to another hotel in the area.

Visit Classic Chevrolet

Call Classic Chevrolet to set up a service appointment for a couple of days before you leave so that you know that your vehicle is ready for a long drive. Or, stop by our showroom to pick out a new Chevy for spring break.
