If you've lost your pet please go to http://www.onslowcountync.gov/animalservices. Click tab at top of page that says "View adoptable & lost/found pets. Look at the pictures of the animals that have been picked up. Many animals have made their way home through this site! (THIS IS A HIGH KILL SHELTER!!!) There are dogs with their harnesses, tags and/or collars on waiting for you to find them and take them back home! Some are full blooded, some are not! This shelter will not contact you if they pick up your pet and they have their info on their tag! They will sit their waiting for you to show until their time is up, I'm sorry but I know this for a fact! There are many animals that look like the ones that are missing on L.Y.S or match the descriptions provided by you. Please take the time to look, even if you just may be interested in adopting, click on " ADOPT A PET "
(FYI) #1- Craigslist and The Daily News under lost and found are also great resources for finding your lost pet!!!
THE BEST RESULTS ARE THIS SITE: https://www.facebook.com/lostfoundpetsonslow/?fref=ts
(#2) Please know about the #1 killer of puppies, "PARVO". It is a very contagious virus that kills so many puppies daily. Please go to Pumpkin Center Lawn and Garden located at the intersection of Hwy. 17 and Wolf Swamp Rd. if you cannot afford the office visit for they sell the same exact vaccine that the vet gives for so much less and without the office visit cost but you have to administer it yourself. If you don't know how maybe someone there will help you.
The first "PARVO" vaccine is different from the remaining three to be given with the last one being at 1 year of age. Be sure to tell them whether it is it's first vaccine or not!
(#3) Please have your Dogs/Puppies, Cats/Kittens included, on the heartworm prevention medicine for all it takes is that one mosquito, infected, to bite your pets only once and their chances will be slim to none. I'm sorry but I promise :(
(#4) Please Spay/ Neuter your pets to stop the ridiculousness of overwhelming our HIGH-KILL shelter with so many unwanted and abandoned animals! :( Did you know that this procedure will also extend your pets life? :)
(#5) Another fact to think about: All unneutered male cats can be responsible for up to 2500 kittens per year. Over 1/2 of them will be euthanized, as kittens! :(
UPDATE:! There are so many at the pound that are owned by people in J'ville for their wagging tails, collars, some with tags tell me so... Please go there for they won't tell you over the phone for sure whether they are there for some simply don't know or even know the breeds well enough, not to mention the mixed breeds. These animals are waiting for you to come and bring them home. :(
(#6) BOB'S WIFE...SONYA, ( DEVOTED ANIMAL RESCUER)... "What a beautiful world it would be if people had hearts like dogs."
" In a perfect world every dog would have a home and every home would have a dog."
"Saving one dog will surely not change the world but for that one dog it will surely change the world forever."
"Don't breed or buy while homeless die. Spay, neuter and adopt a pet. One by one, until there are none!"
"Don't pity a shelter dog adopt one."
Today is the death day of nobody's dog
Nothing will mark it but a note in the log
I'm faceless and nameless and no tears will fall...
For I know in your world I have no worth at all
To you, my sweet someone, I'm a friend and a dear
We ran the wind daily and you held me so near
But the gate was left open - I chanced a walk on my own
I'd have cowered in fear if only I'd known
I know how you cried on the night that I strayed
I know how you searched, I know how you prayed
But I went to a pound far far from our home
Where I crouched in despair in my kennel alone
I know that you phoned for I heard your dear voice
And I hoped you would hear me so I barked myself hoarse
Although I'm a Lab cross with stockings all white
On their form I'm a Staff cross - the description's not right
So they said I'm not here and I sank to my bed
My kennel cough's worse and I can't raise my head
The rescue came yesterday but they hadn't a place
For an un-neutered cross breed with his mucus-streaked face
If only you'd come to search for me here
You would have known me at once, you would have sensed I was near
You would have sorted my ills, you would have carried me home
And I promise our God no more would I roam
Now my eyes plead for mercy for my seven days are done
And I am waiting with dread for the final vet run
No arms will caress me as they inject me to death
No words will comfort me as I take my last breath
When the body man comes, it is fitting I'm found
In a bin bag in the freezer in the depths of the pound
Thrown away like the rubbish - no respect and no shame
Denied even the time to find you again
