Pet Project: Blue Ridge Humane Society Shelter
Edneyville, N.C. (WLOS) —
The first ever News 13 Pet Project is scheduled for Friday, November 10, from 4:30-7pm at Camp Bow Wow at 5 Airport Road.
News 13 is partnering with several local humane societies and rescue groups to help animals in our area find a forever home.
At the Blue Ridge Humane Society shelter in Edneyville, there are many pets in need of homes. The organization is also in great need of volunteers to help all the animals find new homes.
One big focus has been on their loving feline friends. Blue Ridge says many times, adult cats end up in shelters after their owners die. Other times, families move and surrender their cats.
The organization, formed in 1950 is the oldest animal welfare organization in Western North Carolina.
The shelter is a 5,000 square foot building with a capacity of approximately 88 animals.
The shelter makes sure, prior to adoption, each animal is provided with all the appropriate vaccinations, a microchip, dewormed, and are spayed or neutered. In addition, each pet goes home with a 30-day free health insurance plan.
