THIS ACCOUNT IS HELD BY A VOLUNTEER - NOT THE ACTUAL SHELTER!!! THE ANIMALS POSTED HERE ARE IN THE SHELTER. ALL INQUIRIES SHOULD BE MADE TO THE SHELTER VIA TELEPHONE FOR MOST PROMPT, ACCURATE RESPONSE.
We started out as two VOLUNTEERS who saw a real need in our community shelter to get more photos and info to the public on the wonderful pets here. The Guilford County Animal Shelter (GCAS) typically has more than 1,000 animals at any given time being housed here. MORE THAN HALF of the animals that come here will be euthanized. Now, with the help of a couple of professional photographers' generous efforts and a handful of really dedicated volunteers, we are able to show you some pretty amazing homeless animals in need of loving, forever homes.
SHELTER HAS ADDITIONAL INFO ON EACH ANIMAL NOT AVAILABLE ON THIS SITE.
Through personal experience adopting a pet from this shelter, the best way to get accurate, quick info is to call the shelter phone number. The staff is knowledgable and has "real time" information in front of them if you give the pets ID#. Plus, they have extensive information on how an animal came to be at the shelter and the pets' temperaments interacting with other animals.
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.
