Pet Project: Sarge's Animal Rescue Foundation
Haywood County, 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.
One of our partners, the Sarge's Animal Rescue Foundation in Haywood County, has helped save thousands of animals over the years.
Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation’s creation was inspired by a dog at Haywood County Animal Shelter. Sarge was a dog who had been remanded over to the Haywood County Animal Shelter in 2005 by his owner. A breed rescue volunteer identified him as a young, healthy, purebred German Shepherd and marked him for rescue. Despite best efforts, Sarge was euthanized just one hour before rescue transport arrived.
Today, Sarge’s rescues adoptable animals for adoption or transports them to a no-kill shelter or breed-specific rescue group. Animals rescued from the shelter are spayed/neutered and brought up to date on shots and other medical treatments. They are given a safe haven, either in a foster home or at our Adoption Center, while in search of a loving “forever” home.
Sarge's is always looking for volunteers or monetary donations. For more information on how you can help, call (828) 246-9050 or click here.
