Sanford, N.C. – The North Carolina ASPCA held a very successful adoption event Friday.

All dogs at the event found their “fur-ever” homes! Only 100 cats remain available for adoption.

Nearly 600 animals rescued from The Haven found loving homes.

The event wasn’t limited to cats and dogs–farm animals were placed with rescue partners as well.

However, many indoor and barn cats still need homes. The ASPCA is taking the remaining animals to its network of animal welfare agencies and rescues across the country to be made available for adoption.

Another event will be held on Saturday, March 19 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on 2215 Nash Street in Sanford, N.C. (Across from the National Guard Armory).

If you’d like to adopt a pet, be sure to bring one government issued ID (i.e. drivers license, passport, military ID, etc.) proof of address and a pet transfer crate.

All adoptions fees will be waived. The ASPCA is providing the means for each animal to be spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and vaccinated free of charge.
