Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We serve Stanly County and within a 90 mile radius.

We will adopt out-of-state, but this will usually require additional background check as well as potential adopter willing to transport animal.

About Our Rescue Group:

Founded in June 2012. Friends of Stanly County Animals(FSCA) is run by volunteers that are dedicated to save many dogs that would otherwise be killed at a heart stick shelter located in Albemarle, NC. FSCA provides foster homes, vet care, rehabilitation, transport and quality forever homes for dogs in need. FSCA does not operate a shelter, but instead relies on foster homes that care for dogs coming directly from animal control.

We are big animal lovers who are just trying to help and make a difference in the lives of homeless dogs. They are so many out there but if we all pitch in and help we can all make a difference.

Our Adoption Process:

Our Adoption Process...
1.) All potential adopters will be required to fill out an Adoption Application. We work hard at placing all of our rescued animals in the best suitable home possible. We want to ensure the absolute best fit to ensure these sweet babies will be adopted to their forever home and will never have to worry about being homeless again.
**Please be sure that you vet ref has your approval to give us information about your current pets.

2.) All of our rescue animals are fully vetted as well as spayed and neutered at the time of adoption unless there is a medical reason or they are too young to be spayed or neutered at the time, in which a spay/neuter contract will have to be signed. We would like our potential adopters to understand the severe pet overpopulation that is present in our state and want all pet owners to be responsible in spaying and neutering their pets. Therefore it is our policy not to adopt to families that have unaltered pets. Our hearts ache for all the homeless animals including litters of puppies and kittens that get killed in these shelters every day, many by being gassed to death. We try to save the owner surrendered animals because they are the first to be killed, usually on the same day they are surrendered. Unfortunately we cannot save them all and there are only a very few lucky ones to make it out alive.

3.) In general, we do require a fence for dogs unless there are special circumstances such as the dog being older, more laid back, couch potato, etc. There may be other special circumstances as well such as having a dog park next door or wanting a running or hiking partner. We understand that most dogs have a lot of energy and need enough exercise to release that energy. We also want the dog to have a safe place to play in which a fenced yard is most appropriate.

Please note: Our dogs are NOT located at a shelter. They are in foster homes throughout Albemarle and surrounding areas. You must be willing to drive to the dogs foster home in order to adopt it.

BEFORE you can meet any of our dogs, you must be approved to adopt. This means you must fill out and submit an application. A vet check or a reference check is then completed and if that goes well a home visit may be requested. The entire process takes 3-7 days normally, depending on your location. If we do not have anyone in your area to do your home visit we will ask you to reach out to local vets offices, shelters, and rescues to get this done.

Please do not apply to adopt a dog if you are not prepared to welcome it into your home within two weeks of applying. We do not hold dogs and we adopt them out on a first come first served basis based on a completed adoption process.


Once you are approved to adopt you must make your donation and sign an adoption contract BEFORE you pick up your new dog.

Fees:

~~The adoption fee for spay/neutered/chipped/vaccinated dog (over six months) is $160.
~~The adoption fee for a puppy (six months or younger) $200*.

*Animal will need to brought to FSCAs approved vet to be vaccinated, microchipped and spayed/neutered

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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
