Ruin Creek Animal Protection Society of Henderson, NC (RCAPS) is a group that helps animals in need find rescue placement, we do not handle any adoptions. WE ARE NOT THE SHELTER. We do NOT have a facility. Almost all animals posted are from and housed at the a Shelter in Vance County or Surrounding Areas. The breed labeling of the animals are done by the shelter employees, not RCAPS volunteers. Pits and pit mixes are only allowed to be rescued by approved 501c3 rescues ONLY; per Vance County shelter rules and guidelines. We are working on cheaper spay/neuter options and much more.
We are an approved 501c3 organization so all donations are tax deductible.

Our Adoption Process:
We do not do adoptions all adoptions must be done in person at the Vance County Animal Shelter.
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.
