Puppy, kitten looking for new home
The Rowan County Animal Shelter has several animals waiting to be adopted and taken to a good home.
Dog: He’s approximately 9 weeks old and we feel he’s a combination of a German shepherd and maybe some type of spaniel. One thing we know for sure about this little stray puppy is that he is full of affection, and is not shy about showing it to everyone he meets.
Kittens: This freckle-faced young lady is approximately 4 months old. She and two siblings were surrendered to the shelter when their owner could no longer afford to care for them.
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 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.
