Pals with Paws

Dog: This young adult hound mix has raised her litter of puppies and is now ready to start a life for herself so she can be pampered and some one can take care of her.
Cat: Emma is 3 years old and has been spayed, which means that Emma is free to adopt. This beautiful long-haired cat was surrendered to the shelter when she was unable to adjust to new surroundings in her home.
The Rowan County Animal Shelter has several animals waiting to be adopted and taken to good homes.
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, which is a downpayment for spay/neuter costs. The voucher can be used at any veterinarian’s office.
Before adopting any animal, you must agree to take the pet to a veterinarian for an exam and spaying/neutering. If the animal isn’t already vaccinated for rabies, you 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 treatments.
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.
To learn more about adopting a pet, call the shelter at 704-216-7768, or visit the shelter at 1465 Julian Road, Salisbury. You can also visit the shelter’s Web site at www.co.rowan.nc .us/animalshelter/.
