The NCSPCA had a very successful year in 2013, highlighted by our auspicious move to our beautiful, new, state-of-the art shelter in Elizabethtown. Due to the increased space, we were able to provide refuge to 22 percent more dogs and cats than we were able to house in 2012. Our adoption rate also went up 16 percent and we made room for more than 20 dogs from other shelters, most of them saved from certain death. We would like to thank all of our shelter friends in the community for their donations of time and money to help realize our dream. We look forward to 2014 as being an even better year for our furry friends in our quest to find forever homes for all of the animals in our care.
Our featured pet this week is Tessa, a beautiful grey and white Domestic Shorthair-mix who came in with her five newborn kittens several weeks ago. The kittens are full of energy and play, and they are now ready to move on to homes of their own. Sweet mom Tessa has informed us that she is definitely ready for some quality “me” time! We think Tessa is about two years old and, although a little frightened when she first arrived, she has blossomed into an affectionate girl who seems to like just about everyone. She welcomes the shelter staff in soft little mewls when they arrive in the morning, and has a ready purr for anyone who comes near. Tessa is going to make someone a very loyal and loving companion - she might just be the purrfect cat for you!
