Animal shelter to hold adoption special Thursday

SALISBURY — The Rowan County Animal Shelter will offer an adoption special from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday.

All pet adoptions will be 80 percent off the standard price, making adoptions $16 for animals that haven’t been spayed or neutered and $3 for those that have.

Each animal adopted through the shelter is provided vaccinations, a microchip and a sample of free food. Both dogs and cats are dewormed.

For dogs, vaccines include a 5-in-1 treatment for adenovirus cough and hepatitis, distemper, parainfluenza and parvovirus. Dogs are also vaccinated for bordetella.

Cats are given a 3-in-1 vaccine against rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and feline distemper.

Both dogs and cats are given a one-year rabies vaccine if age-appropriate. “Unaltered” animals come with a $70 voucher to be spayed or neutered.
