Humane Society of Rowan County plans 35th anniversary celebration
The Humane Society of Rowan County will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Hurley Room at the Rowan Public Library, 201 W. Fisher St., to plan events in connection with the its 35th anniversary.
In the past few months, the society has received a record number of calls for help with owned pets. While its purpose is to rescue sick, injured, stray and abandoned animals and to provide medical care including spaying/neutering and vaccinations, it tries to help pet owners with special requests as much as possible.
Pet food and monetary donations are needed as well as foster care providers for animals. All animals are vaccinated and spayed or neutered, if age and health permit, prior to entering a foster home.
The society is a non-profit, tax-deductible organization. Call 704-636-5700 to volunteer, list animals on the want/give lost/found service, report situations requiring the society’s attention or to schedule pets for low-cost spay/neuter services.
