Donate to Our Shelter...

The shelter accepts monetary donations or supplies. Donations may be mailed to the Davidson County Animal Shelter at 490 Glendale Rd. Lexington, NC 27292 or delivered to the shelter.

Our Adoption Process:

When you decide to adopt a shelter pet, we recommend that you allow time to visit and spend time with the pet you have selected. The shelter knows that making the decision to adopt a new pet into your home is a serious responsibility. Your new pet could go through a stressful period of adjustment when transitioning to life in your home. The shelter has a seven day trial period for all adoptions to insure that both you and your new pet are compatible. Potential owners will be asked to fill out an application and agree to the shelterĺs adoption procedures. The adopter agrees to provide all medical care and treatment needed for the animal, this includes a yearly checkup, required vaccines, heart worm prevention and flea and tick prevention. A fecal examination is highly recommended for your new pet. Your pet has received a deworming prior to adoption, but due to the life cycle of parasites, the initial deworming may not remove all of the parasites.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
