Tabby and 3-year-old ‘Princess’ for adoption
The Rowan County Animal Shelter has several animals waiting to be adopted and taken to a good home.
Cats or kittens, young or old, little or big ó we have them all for your selection.
Cat: Take for example this juvenile male orange-and-white tabby. This guy is one of the most affectionate cats you’ll ever meet. Come choose one for your home.
Dog: Her name is “Princess,” she is 3 years old and in spite her name she is very humble. Princess can be a bit on the nervous and timid side and would do best in a home without children. A nice quiet couch cushion would suit her needs.
From rescued animals to those abandoned by owners who couldn’t afford them, and all others in between, the Animal Shelter has them all.
Adoption fees are $70, a downpayment for spay/neuter costs. The voucher can be used at any veterinarian’s office.
Before adopting any animal, a person must agree to take the pet to a veterinarian for an exam and spaying/neutering. If the animal isn’t already vaccinated for rabies, the person must agree to begin shots within three business days.
Rabies shots can be given as soon as the pet turns 4 months old.
The animal shelter isn’t equipped with a medical facility, and cannot administer any procedures or treatment.
A worker at the shelter will go over all information and gladly answer all questions from those adopting pets.
Want to view animals at the shelter? Kennel hours are Monday-Friday, 11 a.m-4 p.m., and Saturdays, 8-11 a.m.
Office hours are Monday-Friday, 11 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and Saturday, 8-11:30 a.m.
