The Columbus County Animal Shelter invites the public to fall in love with their new best friend at its first Christmas Adoption Fair on Saturday, December 5th. New director Joey Prince offered positive changes and lots of exciting events to promote the dogs and cats at the Whiteville, North Carolina shelter when he took the lead in September. The Christmas event promises not to disappoint.
Tractor Supply Company, in Whiteville at 26 White Crossing Plaza off Highway 701 is the place to be between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Cute cats, kittens, dogs, nd puppies will be available on site for adoption. Your new best friend will be ready for you to take home as soon as you fall in love. Pictures of the animals available for adoption can be found on the Columbus County Animal Control Facebook page.
During the period between Thanksgiving and December, the shelter usually receives a larger number of animals than in an average month, and so far this year this has remained the case. The staff at Columbus County Animal Control are working tirelessly to find these animals a new home. Please come out and help us clear the shelter, and give these wonderful, “pawsome” animals a loving family.
The mission of the Columbus County Animal Shelter is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for the lost, abandoned, and homeless animals of Columbus County and increase the number of these animals being placed in appropriate, “fur-ever” homes through adoptions, and foster care. The shelter and its staff strive to set a standard of excellence and leadership in shelter animal care, humane education, and progressive animal welfare programs.
In case you can’t attend the Christmas adoption event, the Columbus County Animal Shelter is located at 288 Legion Drive in Whiteville and is open Monday through Friday from 12 p.m.til 4 p.m. If you have questions, the shelter can be reached by phone at 910-641-3945.
