Queen Phoebe, Maggie need homes
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.
Cat: Queen Phoebe expects to be treated as such. She is a 5-year-old, spayed female that demands to be the only cat in your household. Despite that, she is very generous with her love and attention to humans. Phoebe is free to adopt.
Dog: Maggie is the sweetest little girl you’d ever want to meet. Poor Maggie is the product of an unwanted gift, and as a result, she was surrendered to the shelter. She is a Terrier mix, just over a year old.
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.
