Pets need good, loving homes

The Rowan County Animal Shelter has several animals waiting to be adopted and taken to a good home.

Cat: Scotch, a 2-year-old male who’s looking for someone to love.

Dog: Buffy is very lovable and has a personality as unique as her appearance. Buffy is about 7 months old, which means she still has a lot of puppy left in her and that was a problem for her owners. Nevertheless, she needs a good home where someone will appreciate her one of a kind look.

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 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.

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 704-633-0482, 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/.
