Letter: Many dogs, cats await placement in caring home

The Humane Society of Rowan County extends our thanks to everyone who stopped to help with the rescue of the dog that was hit on Jake Alexander Boulevard on Dec. 26 and featured on the front page of the Dec. 27 Salisbury Post. We’re sorry that we do not have contact information so that we can personally thank each caring person who took the time to assist in some way.

Many thanks go to Carol of Rowan Animal Clinic for contacting HSRC volunteers as soon as someone called there to report the situation and to Dr. Cynthia Almond and staff for their care of a very frightened and sore little dog.

Numerous calls have been made to the HSRC today from people interested in adopting the dog, and we appreciate this outpouring of concern. We are happy to announce that she has been reunited with her family. The mother went online to read the Salisbury Post this morning and saw her dog on the front page! Thank you, Holly Fesperman, for the article.

Several good things are coming about because of this almost tragic situation, one major project to be announced in the near future. One thing that we hope to accomplish is placement of other animals in the care of the HSRC because of the interest expressed in this one fine little dog. All of the animals in our care have come to us from equally sad situations. Some have been, like this little dog, literally pulled from certain death. Most were abandoned, and all deserve the love and care that so many are willing to give this one. If you can open your heart and home to an animal for its lifetime, please contact the HSRC and ask to meet our foster animals or visit the Rowan County Animal Shelter.
