Feeling better and on the road to recovery! Poor Elsa is a sweet Female Terrier mix that was spotted at the local County dog pound in pain and scared. She did not want to come to me at first but realized we were there to help her. Most of her skin was raw from her mange, and her claws were so long she could barely walk. After a quick run to the vet and a skin scraping, it was determined she had Demodectic (red) mange, which is non-contagious. A soothing medicated bath, some treats and a nice soft bed was all it took for her to realize she was in good hands. Unfortunately now Elsa has shown signs of Epilepsy, and will be started on phenobarbital medication. She needs a special home that will continue to give her the love and care she needs. She is approx. 1 year old, heart worm negative, up to date on all her vaccinations and spayed. Her adoption fee is $50.00. Her ID is DF1507014.

About Robeson County Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

Welcome to the Robeson County Humane Society's No-Kill Animal Shelter.
We are a non-profit organization dedicated to helping cats and dogs. We were founded to find loving homes for adoptable animals, and promote responsible pet ownership throughout the county with an emphasis on spaying and neutering.
The Robeson County Humane Society Animal Shelter's volunteers and staff provide care for adoptable dogs and cats that live there until appropriate forever homes are found for them.
The Society also welcomes gifts of time, talent, and treasure. There are many volunteer opportunities both at the shelter and with other Humane Society projects. You can also get up to date on some of our past and present events and some of the "wishlist projects" at our shelter by downloading & browsing our quarterly newsletter.


What We are all about

Our primary goal is to rescue and find appropriate placement for homeless animals. Adoptable and treatable animals that demonstrate no signs of aggression will remain at our facility until the right home is found for them. We believe in educating our community about responsible pet ownership, and the humane treatment of animals. We also practice progressive spay/neuter and adoption programs. Adoption applications are not necessarily approved on a first come, first serve basis. Our goal is to find the right family for the right animal, and the right animal for the right family. Therefore, we reserve the right to approve applications that appear to be the best fit for both the adopter and the adoptee.
