Lively kittens, energetic dog looking for good homes
The Rowan County Animal Shelter has several animals waiting to be adopted and taken to a good home.
Kittens: Bouncy and energetic describes this beige and white tabby kitten. He, his sibling and the many other kittens at the shelter all have fun playing in the adoption room, but would just be ecstatic to roam the halls of your home instead.
Dog: How cute is this 4- month-old collie mix pup. His owners surrendered him to the shelter because he was just too much for them to handle. He does have quite a bit of energy but nothing that wouldn’t be cured with a good long walk each day.
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 down payment 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 Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:30-4:15 p.m.; Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m.-noon; and Saturdays from 8-11:30 a.m.
