Morris, Sarah, looking for love, homes
Cat: He may not look happy in his picture, but Morris is actually a very affectionate kitty. Normally Morris has long hair but is sporting a ‘cool cut’ for the warmer days. He is 2 years old and is already neuter so there is no charge to adopt him.
Dog: This gorgeous young lady is Sarah. She is a 3-year-old German Shepherd-mix that was surrendered to the shelter when her owners could no longer afford to care for her. She has a wonderful disposition and would make a devoted friend.
The Rowan County Animal Shelter has several animals waiting to be adopted and taken to a good home.
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.
