In this time of difficult economics, many of us do not have a lot of extra funds to donate to our favorite causes, even though we would like to help. Although the NCSPCA is always in need of your donations, there are also other ways you can assist us in ensuring our pets are happy, socialized, and ready to find their forever homes.
When you spend time with our shelter animals, you get back even more than you give. Wagging tails and rumbling purrs will let you know just how much your visits are appreciated. Many adults and teens volunteer at the shelter to help make it the best possible alternative until a loving adoptive home can be found. Volunteers walk dogs, provide the animals with positive attention, and assist with other forms of animal care. Many of our pets have come from environments where they received very little attention and love; your time spent with them helps them to enjoy and look forward to being around people.
Our featured pet this week is a dog who is an example of one of our pets who has experienced neglect. She is thrilled to spend time with visitors! Samantha is a 4 year old Rotti mix who was left in a pen tied to a dog house with frozen food and water. A neighbor could not bear to see this dog living in these conditions. She was able to find relatives of the owner, who agreed to release her to our care. Samantha is a very calm and docile young lady, who is well mannered and easy to love. Samantha will make a great addition to practically any family.
If you are interested in meeting Samantha, or any of our other wonderful animals who are seeking forever homes, contact us at 962-8604 or visit our website at firstname.lastname@example.org.
