Our mission is to save healthy adoptable animals in the Haywood County Animal Control facility from euthanasia. We take highly adoptable dogs and cats from the shelter and foster them in private homes until an adoptive family can be found. Our goal is a center where adoptable dogs and cats will receive loving care until they can be adopted to permanent homes.
Come Meet our Pets:
Our pets are in foster homes, and the contact information is listed with the pet's description. Adoption day events will be publicized on our website, www.sargeandfriends.org, as they are scheduled.
Our Adoption Process:
To adopt a fostered pet, you will have to complete an application, have an interview and home visit, and pay an adoption fee. All foster animals are spayed or neutered, are on flea preventative, and all shots current. Dogs are tested for heartworm and are on heartworm preventative, cats are tested for feline leukemia. The adoption fee for cats is $50 and for dogs it's $100
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat
adoption saves lives. Adopt
a dog or adopt a cat and you'll
have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
