found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
We have NO ability to test shelter animals with children. We have no information on the status of housetraining. We are able to cat test upon request. If he is an Anatolian Shepherd, please note that they were bred to serve as livestock guardian dogs for sheep. That means a dog ready to work all day, who is smart as can be and who is independent....a dog who won't do well just hanging out in the backyard with nothing to do but rather a dog who loves to work for/with you and loves to learn! They are also rather large dogs. To learn more, please go to: http://www.akc.org/breeds/anatolian_shepherd_dog/index.cfm
Neither the shelter nor our volunteer group (Friends of Ashe County Animals) will transport animals to private adopters. Persons wishing to adopt a shelter animal MUST appear in person at the shelter. Please DO NOT call the shelter directly unless you are (1) planning to drive to the shelter to adopt an animal or (2) recognize a shelter stray animal as yours and wish to reclaim. Otherwise, we ask that you send questions to email@example.com and allow shelter staff to handle emergent calls and their duties of caring for the animals at the shelter.
The shelter does not have the ability to perform heartworm testing on-site. Deworming and/or vaccinations can be done on occasion when medication is available (we rely on donations for this). For reputable rescues, however, 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. The approval process involves submitting an application, available by emailing a Friends of Ashe County Animals (FACA) volunteer at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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. The Animal Control Officers prefer that all rescue-related inquiries be directed to the volunteer email (email@example.com) so please do not contact the shelter with rescue-related inquiries. An FACA volunteer will be checking this email daily so please allow 24 hours for a response. Shelter information: Ashe County Animal Control 767 Fred Pugh Road Crumpler, NC 28617 Shelter Hours: 10:00AM-2PM, MON/WED/FRI. They are closed to public on TU/TH/SAT/SUN.
Act quickly to adopt Diesel. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.
