Pals with Paws

The Rowan County Animal Shelter has several animals waiting to be adopted and taken to a good home.
Dog: Theodore is a loving, 3-year-old Corgi/Jack Russell terrier mix. Theodore’s owners could no longer care for him and had to surrender him to the shelter.
Cat: This is sleepy-eyed Smoke. He is an adult male that is just as laid back as he appears in his picture. He’d love nothing more than to curl up in a sunny window seat at your house.
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 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.
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/.
