Owner Surrender Update

Humane Society of Catawba County will be taking owner surrender animals from the public into
the Hickory Facility, 3224 20th Ave SE, dependent upon space availability.

All animals received into the care of HSCC will be evaluated, and then provided all appropriate
medical care, including spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, and relevant testing.  These animals
will then be placed into caring homes through our adoption and rescue programs.  This new
owner surrender program will begin July 1, 2020, and will not be restricted to Catawba County
residents, but will be open to all.   Please remember that If you find a stray animal, it should be
taken to the Catawba County Animal Services/Shelter located at
201 Government Services Drive, Newton.

tHE SHELTER PETS HAVE ONE QUESTIONS FOR YOU…

wILL YOU BE MY SPONSOR?

Sponsor a Pet

We all love animals, and want to help, but sometimes adding another pet to the family is just
not an option. What if we told you there was a way to adopt a pet from HSCC without the burden
of responsibility? Our shelter is a home in between homes to almost 800 homeless animals from
Catawba County. Today you can make a difference in their lives by sponsoring a shelter pet
while they wait for their furever home.
