Intake Policy

Our organization is licensed by the NC Department of Agriculture to house cats and kittens only, and cannot have dogs at the facility or on the property. 

Our mission as an organization is to prevent the euthanization of adoptable pets in Ashe County. For that reason, our first priority is pulling animals from Ashe County Animal Control. If you have cats/kittens that you need to rehome, you can contact us and check if we have space. However, since we are often one of the few rescues that regularly pull cats and kittens from Animal Control, we stay at capacity most of the time and are unable to intake from the public. 

We are not the county shelter and can not take any strays. Please contact Ashe County Animal Control. 336-982-4060
