Visit our Facebook page at facebook.com/petsavernc to view postings and pictures of recently adopted pets and their new families, meet our volunteers at work, or to post comments about dogs you adopted from Petsaver-NC. We'd love to hear your happy ending stories.
VOLUNTEERS: Petsaver-NC is recruiting volunteers who share our mission of finding homes for rescued dogs and pups. We currently need enthusiastic people to walk dogs, teach them basic commands, take dogs for outings to expose them to new situations, and to handle shy dogs who lack confidence. It's a rewarding experience to transform an insecure, inexperienced rescued dog into a confident, well-mannered, more adoptable dog who will find a forever home much easier thanks to the caring help of a dog-loving person. While you're walking for exercise or to lose weight, why not take a dog who needs human contact along with you? We invite adults, scouts, homeschooled families, or students looking for extra volunteer community service hours to join us at Petsaver-NC. Petsaver NC currently works with several high schools to help students earn school credit and mandatory service hours.
DONATIONS: Petsaver-NC currently has a need for the following new or used items:
collars, leashes, dog or puppy food (canned or dry), metal or plastic bowls, shampoo, disinfectants, tennis balls, towels, blankets, worn clothing that could be used as rags or crate bedding, stuffed toys, doggie bones, treats, crates, and copy paper. If you can donate any of these items, we thank you.
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.
