Pals with paws – 3-year-old Lilly, numerous kittens need good homes
The Rowan County Animal Shelter has several animals waiting to be adopted and taken to a good home.
From rescued animals to those abandoned by owners who couldn’t afford them, and all others in between, the Animal Shelter has them all.
Dog: Lilly might be her name but peace, tranquility and lots of understanding is what she needs to help her adjust to a new home. Her owners had to surrender her to the shelter when they could no longer afford to care for her. Lilly is approximately 3 years old and would probably do best in a quiet home where there are no small children.
Cats: Just in case everyone is not aware … the animal shelter has “kittens” for adoption. It’s that time of the year and kittens and cats are plentiful. These kittens are just two of the many needing a new home.
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.
