Icee, who just got adopted, is representative of the many beautiful and sweet pets available at the Currituck Animal Shelter. Although our animals receive excellent care from our caring staff, you can see in Icee’s eyes that she longs to get OUT! Where’s a loving family for me? Come select an adoring pet with whom to share your life and your home. Our animals are: current on their vaccinations, including rabies; spayed or neutered or come with a voucher for this if they are too young; micro chipped; have tested negative for heart worms; and come with 30 days of free pet insurance! All of this for $89. for dogs; $75. for puppies; $85. for cats (we’re currently running a 2 -for- the- price- of -one); and $45. for kittens. What a bargain! Tell your friends and family! Come adopt!
Providing a temporary foster home saves lives. Recently we had two little black lab puppies, Cricket and Cleo, with severe chemical burns who were found starving along the side of a road. We paid for their veterinary bills but it was the kindness of Eve Bullock fostering them that brought them back to good health. They have both now been adopted. Nicole Bergeron and Nancy VanClief help in fostering cats and kittens, often providing the personal care that makes the difference in their survival and then their going to caring permanent homes. Dogs receiving treatment for heart worms need the quiet of a foster home. The dog didn’t ask to get heart worms. He deserves a level playing field with that of healthy dogs to help him get adopted. Fostering does that.
Volunteers can make a dog’s day just by taking him for a walk. Play with a kitty to make her more socialized. You’ll get a real satisfaction in knowing that you made a difference for an animal who needed you, and is more adoptable because of you.
Paying for the nearly $1,000. in veterinary care for Icee and the two burned puppies, has put a strain on our finances. We try to care for them all as best we can. Your donations make that possible.
SPECIAL NEEDS = Non-wooden dog houses; Kongs for the dogs; toys for the dogs and cats; large storage totes with lids for storing winter comforters, etc.
