Two kittens and a very special beagle are looking for good homes

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, December 2, 2009

This precious beagle mix came to the shelter as a stray. We knew there was something special about her by the way she acted, but we had no idea just how special she would become to all of us. We believe this adorable baby is blind. It does not affect her personality one bit. Please give this extraordinary little one a place in your home and in your heart.
We’re keeping our fingers crossed. She is the sweetest thing. She hears you coming and gets so excited. We know the odds are against her , but we couldn’t bear the other option, not with her loving personality.
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 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.
To learn more about adopting a pet, call the shelter at 704-216-7768, or visit the shelter at 1465 Julian Road, Salisbury. You can also visit the shelter’s Web site at .us/animalshelter/.
