Grey and white tabby, Lab/Newfoundland mix need homes

Published 12:00 am Saturday, January 1, 2011

From rescued animals to those abandoned by owners who couldn’t afford them, and all others in between, the Animal Shelter has them all.
The Rowan County Animal Shelter has several animals waiting to be adopted and taken to a good home.
Cat: This grey and white tabby was abandoned by her owner. She is a sassy and sweet young lady that would make someone a terrific pet. We feel she is a young adult, probably less than a year old.
Dog: One look into those big, beautiful eyes and she will steal your heart. This female pup is approximately 9 weeks old. Her rather large feet, and big build lead us to believe she may be a mixture of Labrador and Newfoundland.
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 Monday-Friday, 11 a.m-4 p.m.; and Saturdays, 8-11 a.m.
Office hours are Monday-Friday, 11 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and Saturday, 8-11:30 a.m.
