Due to the ongoing Covid Pandemic, you may come to the Resource Center during by appointment only to see the animals that are currently available. We have a questionnaire that must be completed before an adopter making an appointment. If you rent an apartment or your home, we require that you bring a signed document from your landlord stating that pets are allowed. This prevents the return of animals that are not permitted in rentals.
To Potential Adopters:
*Adopters must be 18 years of age or older.
*We reserve the right to contact the landlord for renters
*We will ask permission to contact your veterinarian for a reference.
*Our cats and kittens are adopted out are to be companion pets and live indoors only. The only acception would be if we adopt out a cat designated by us as a barn or community cat.
*We will not adopt out animals to be given as gifts.
*All cats adopted from us are already spayed/neutered or a voucher/compensation will be made for the value of $30 for males and $55 for females for a future spay/neuter. Compensation will require proof of operation in the form of a bill from the veterinarian. Adopter will agree to follow through with getting their kitten fixed once it weighs 4 pounds.
*Other animals in the home must be spayed/neutered and current on vaccinations. All pets over the age of 4 months should have a current rabies vaccination.
*We do not hold animals for adoption on a first come, first-served basis unless we have an approved application and paid adoption fee.
*We reserve the right to decline an adoption application.
We make every effort to find a great home for the animals who are brought to the center. The number of pets will vary from week to week. Our adoption fees are shown below. This fee covers the spay/neuter cost for your new pet. Adopters are responsible for having the pet vet checked and vaccinated.
Adoption Fees is $55
Our adoption fees are non-refundable. The fee is used to pay the cost of the spay/neuter procedure for pets that have not had the surgery. Fees for pets that have already been spayed or neutered are used to offset the cost of our foster program
Our organization is only licensed to house cats and kittens, and cannot have dogs at the facility or on the property.
Our first priority, 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 the only rescue that pulls cats/kittens from Animal Control, we stay at capacity most of the time and are unable to intake from the public.
Please call the Resource Center at (336) 982-4297 for more information.
