WHO WE ARE
We are a small group of volunteers in Rowan County trying to do what we can to save the lives of animals that we have rescued. We have no shelter. All animals are kept in volunteer foster homes until they can be placed. We educate the public about the importance of spaying and neutering your pet to help stop the needless killings of innocent animals and also about responsible, humane animal care.

We believe in solving the problem, not adding to it.

REMEMBER ... TO HAVE YOUR ANIMAL SPAYED OR NEUTERED
Are you aware that 400 animals are put to death EACH MONTH at Rowan County Animal Shelter because nobody wants them?
THINK ABOUT IT and remember
Advantages to spay/neuter:
1. Stops male cats from spraying
2. Decreases the possibility of mammary tumors
3. Increase life expectancy
4. Eliminates common problems of cancer of the uterus
5. Reduces the risk of prostate problems and testicular tumors.
SHUN PUPPY MILLS
Most pet store puppies are obtained from puppy mills, where dogs are treated as mere livestock to be bred over and over again, and where attention to the mothers' and puppies' physical and social needs are ignored.
Also when buying a puppy from backyard breeders, be sure to get paperwork showing proof that pups have had all necessary shots and are healthy before purchasing. Some of these backyard breeders are out only for the money, not caring about the pups or what happens to them in the future. A lot of purebred dogs are going through local animal shelter because the breeders are not responsible parties.
Humane organizations have been trying for many years to close such places down, but they cannot do so without the help of an informed public that refuses to buy the dogs.
The warmth and comfort sought by puppy-buyers can easily be found in any local shelter, where animals wait for rescue from a sad fate. Many puppies bought on a whim will be ending up in these shelters anyway, when the realities of dog guardianship become evident to purchasers.
I urge all who are truly serious about providing a lifelong home for a dog to steer strictly clear of puppy mill animals. If it is a specific breed they seek, there are hundreds of breed-rescue organizations that will be overjoyed to help.
MANY CATS & KITTENS NEEDING HOMES
Usually in the spring we're overrun with phone calls from the public about all the kittens they have needing homes -
Please care enough about your animals to SPAY AND NEUTER - STOP NEEDLESS KILLINGS.
