Nearly 700 Rescued Animals Will Be Available for Adoption in NC This Weekend: Will You Open Your Home to Just One?

March 14, 2016

Great news: Nearly 700 cats and dogs rescued by the ASPCA in January are ready to find loving homes! The animals were suffering from severe neglect at the site of an unlicensed, 122-acre facility in Raeford, North Carolina. Over the past several weeks at the ASPCA’s temporary shelter, they have received much-needed medical attention and behavioral care to prepare them for adoption. The ASPCA will host a three-day event in Sanford, North Carolina, to find homes for these adorable pets, and we hope you’ll consider adopting! Here are all the details:

What: ASPCA Adoption Event
When: Friday, March 18 through Sunday, March 20 from 10:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M.
Where: ASPCA Temporary Shelter
2215 Nash St.
Sanford, NC 27330
More Info: Potential adopters should bring one government-issued photo ID (i.e. driver’s license, passport, military ID or non-driver ID), proof of address and an appropriately-sized pet transfer crate, if possible. The ASPCA has provided all basic medical care, including spay/neuter surgeries and microchips, for all adopted pets. All adoption fees will be waived during this event.

There will be hundreds of cats and dogs of all shapes, breeds and sizes available for adoption at the event. Here are just a few special animals who would love to meet you:


Sunshine (female, 6 months to 1 year old): How can you resist that face? Sunshine is an active pup who is full of love, gives plenty of kisses and will always make your day brighter. She is big fan of belly rubs, toys and playing with her friends.


Katie (female, 6 months to 2 years old): At the temporary shelter, we set up colonies for cats who thrive with other cats—and Katie is one! This tortie kitten has the loudest purr of the group—talking is her thing. Aside from her voice, Katie’s beautiful markings make her stand out. She would be great in a home with or without other cat siblings.


Louie (female, 2-5 years old): Louie is a timid, gentle girl looking for a special friend and a quiet home. She loves treats and walks very nicely on her leash, staying close to your side. Louie was extremely shy when we first rescued her, but now she will happily greet you with her wagging tail, eager to say hello to a friendly face. 


Sarah (female, 6 months to 2 years old): Sarah loves the company of her feline friends! This black-and-white kitten is one of the quieter kittens of the group, but she is a playful and curious cat nonetheless. She would be great in a home with or without other cat siblings.


Clover (male, 2-5 years old): Meet Clover, known affectionately as “Clo”! This handsome boy loves to be pet and stroked. Clo is very smart and has already learned how to sit nicely for a treat! His dream home would have plenty of space to run and play outside.

We hope to see you on March 18, 19 or 20 in Sanford!
