Animals awaiting adoption at county shelter

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, December 2, 2009

The Rowan County Animal Shelter has several animals waiting to be adopted and taken to a good home.
Dog: For the love of chocolate. These two delightful pups are just as sweet as chocolate. They are chocolate Lab mix, about 7 weeks old. One is a male and one is a female and there are several other siblings in addition to them to choose from.
Kitten: How could anyone resist this adorable face? This perfect example of peace and tranquility could be snuggled up on your lap if you come adopt him from the shelter. This kitten and its siblings are just waiting for your visit.
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.
