Every spring in eastern North Carolina is tough on homeless and stray cats and dogs. Unaltered animals are having litters of kittens and puppies without proper care or nutrition.
This spring, 2020 is especially hard as the people are fighting the battle with novel Coronavirus pandemic. The usual volunteer army can't hold adoption events due to social distancing measures. Fosters are holding adoptable animals longer while searching for good homes. Community volunteers that would catch and transport cats to be fixed, are not able to do their work. Dogs are waiting in shelters, hoping to be saved. Clinic appointments are hard to get. Transport volunteers are worried about contracting Coronavirus so transport has slowed dramatically. Life is tougher in the world of rescue. Help us maintain a foothold in the vetting and foster care for needy animals during this pandemic upheaval.
