Vinny's Info...

I am purebred, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Vinny's Story...
Vinny is an adult unneutered lovebug of an Australian Cattle Dog. He was found roaming with his friend, Lizzy. We know nothing of his past history but we do know that he does great with other dogs and he absolutely LOVES people! He would love to accompany you on long walks or hikes but would also be just as happy being your lapdog. Vinny will need a cat-free home as he found the cat way too "appetizing" during his cat test.

We would like to thank Frederica Georgia of www.fredericageorgia.com for donating her time & talents to help capture the beauty & spirit of ACAC shelter animals like Vinny.

The shelter does not have the ability to heartworm testing, deworming or vaccinations on-site; however, for reputable rescues, local volunteer assistance is available for transport to a local Vet clinic for such testing and to obtain appropriate vaccines and Health Certificate at the rescue's expense.

In order to pull animals from Ashe County Animal Control, rescues must be approved by the Lead ACO. The approval process involves submitting an application, available by emailing fabulousmcg@gmail.com or calling the shelter directly. As part of the application, rescues will need to submit copies of their adoption application, adoption contract and 501c3. Rescues will also need to provide a Vet Reference.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Vinny, a Crumpler Australian Cattle Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog for sale in Crumpler, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog dog from a breeder in Crumpler.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Crumpler already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Crumpler breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Australian Cattle Dog breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Crumpler paves the way for another one to be saved.
