Please adopt, don't shop for your next furry family member. Dr. Oliver has rescued several animals from the Guilford County Animal Shelter who were all scheduled to be euthanized due to archaic and inhumane County policies. All pit bulls, rottweilers and chows are automatically euthanized no matter what. 99% of these dogs that are dumped at the shelter are nice dogs, but instead of temperament testing them they are all sentenced to death. Friendly, healthy dogs, even puppies are being killed every day just because of the way they look. If they look like they might be a pit, rottie or chow they are euthanized. The same things happen with cats who are brought into a very stressful environment and handled in stressful ways. If a cat hisses or tries to scratch after it has been traumatized by being taken from it's home or grabbed by a rabies pole and shoved into a loud chaotic environment, it is labeled temperamental and euthanized. The vast majority of these cats if handled with kindness and respect and housed in a less stressful manner would make perfectly good pets. Here are some of the animals we have saved and hope you will consider making them part of your family and giving them a forever home.
If you don't see someone on our web page who fits you then visit the SPCA of the Triad. They are a no-kill shelter and they believe in giving every homeless animal in Guilford County the chance to shelter and heal in their facility until they are ready to be adopted out to their forever homes. Please consider supporting this wonderful non-profit organization by donating dollars, food or your time as a volunteer.
