Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Primarily Johnston County, NC (including Smithfield, Clayton, Four Oaks, Benson, Pine Level, Cleveland, Garner and Raleigh addresses (inside Johnston County); and we have done outreach in emergency situations outside these areas when at all possible
About Our Rescue Group:We are the Johnston County Animal Protection League (JCAPL). We are a 501 (c)(3) non profit, formed in 2001.
Our primary function and purpose is animal advocacy and to promote animal welfare, in all its aspects.
We do rescue and adoptions, outreach (providing or assisting spay/neuter; food; dog houses; kennels); and education.
We are unpaid volunteers, but we continue to try and fill the void wherever we see the need, and we do it because the need is great and the animals are innocent in all the crimes and abuses against them.
Come Meet our Pets:CATS and KITTENS: We have some of our adoptable cats & kittens in the Luv-A-Pet Center at PetSmart (White Oak in Garner and in Smithfield). Cats can be seen during regular store hours by asking a manager. The Luv-A-Pet Center is open and JCAPL volunteers and additional cats and kittens are at Petsmart on Saturdays from 10am until 2pm. We do rotate our cats and kittens regularly so if you see a cat or kitten online, but do not see them at Petsmart, they are most likely taking a break at their foster home.
DOGS and PUPPIES can be seen at the PetSmart at White Oak Shopping Center 10:00 am until 2:00 p.m. on Saturdays every week, or by appointment with individual foster homes.
Our Adoption Process:Dogs $175.00 (includes the animal spayed or neutered, current on vaccines that are age appropriate; flea & tick prevention and heartworm prevention, dewormed and microchip)(refundable $100 deposit required if the puppy is too young to be spayed or neutered - deposit returned after spay/neuter has been completed and verified with veterinarian)

We require an Adoption Application to be completed, interview with potential adopter, sometimes home visits are done and vet references checked when possible. If the potential adopter lives in a rental property, we will need verification from the property owner or management that pets are allowed, how many and what restrictions may apply. An Adoption Agreement and Medical History form are signed. We require a deposit if animal is pending spay or neuter appointment, and monitor follow-up to keeping the appointment.
