The Rowan County Animal Shelter has several animals waiting to be adopted and taken to a good home.
Walter the cat:This handsome young man is named Walter. He is a neutered male that is also declawed. Walter is 4 years old and is eager to share his many charms, along with his good looks, with a loving family.
Mother and daughter: There’s nothing more special than the bond between a mother and child, whether it be human or animal. This devoted mother and her little girl are looking to share their love with anyone that will let them. Mom arrived as a stray and the pup was born at the shelter on April 11.
From rescued animals to those abandoned by owners who couldn’t afford them and all others in between, the Animal Shelter has them.
Adoption fees for pets that have not been spayed/neutered is $55.
There will be adjustments made on fees if the animal has already been spayed/neutered, and/or has been vaccinated for rabies.
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 see the animals? 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/.
