SANFORD, N.C. (WNCN) — At least 600 animals were adopted Friday, according to ASPCA officials. The cats and dogs were taken from a Hoke County animal shelter, the Haven, in January where authorities say they found deplorable conditions inside.
Saturday, officials tell CBS North Carolina only 100 cats remain and are up for adoption from 10 AM to 6PM on Saturday at 2215 Nash Street, across from the National Guard Armory.
Through various rescue partners and over the last two months, the ASPCA has been able to nurse the animals back to health for their adoption.
Hundreds lined Nash Street in Sanford to bring home a new furry friend.
All adoption fees were waived and all the animals will be spayed or neutered as well as micro-chipped. They will also have their rabies vaccinations.
