The warmer Spring air brings showers, greener grass, and children playing outside again. It is also a great time to come to the shelter and volunteer to walk some of our many dogs. In addition to helping the dogs get exercise and a chance to socialize, you may find yourself making a new friend! Even if you don't have room in your home to adopt a pet, our animals appreciate any time you can spend with them. If you prefer indoor fun, there are always plenty of kittens ready to play, and older cats who would love to be scratched behind the ears. If you have any special talents or interests that you think would be helpful as a volunteer, please don't hesitate to call us at 962-8604 go find out how you can help.
Our featured pet this week is Ginger, a gorgeous German-Shepherd mix who is a sweet young lady of about two years of age. She enjoys socializing and any kind of attention you can offer her. She is quite intelligent, intuitive, and has a knack for learning new things. Like most German Shepherds, she is loyal - if you adopt her, Ginger will probably believe she is adopting you! If you are looking for a young, larger dog with a huge heart, gentle temperament, and willingness to please, you should definitely come to the shelter to meet Ginger.
In addition to the warm weather heralded by Spring, we are also beginning to experience our yearly influx of new furry friends, including puppies and kittens. Please stop by or check out our webpage at www.ncspca.org to see who is looking for a home. Some of our animals who are hoping to find forever homes include: Buttercup, a young Collie/Beagle mix who likes to spend time outside; Clint, a handsome grey domestic shorthair-mix who is our resident Clint Eastwood; Iah, a three-year-old white Great Pyrenees who has lots of energy; and Sammie, a black and white kitten who was abandoned in the cold but is warming up to the attentions of shelter staff. Our doors are nearly bursting with the number of pets at this time who are seeking home. Maybe one of them is the perfect match to be your newest family member.
