"There has never been a time in my life that I was not involved in animal rescue. There was never a day that I doubted my purpose on this earth. I have never turned away a homeless animal and I never will. However, everything about my purpose changed when I found Rhudy, a Chocolate Lab, on my back porch in 2008, starved and suffering, a chain grown into his scrawny neck. 

 As I treated the gaping wounds, I realized that all my tears and all my heartache would not stop the cruelty; my anger would not punish his abuser. It was Rhudy who changed the direction of my efforts for animal rights. 

 Nothing I’ve ever done before prepared me for “Laws and Ordinances”, certainly not hairdressing and raising a family. However, it seems that I was led by an unseen hand to the right people at the right time to help me stop the cruel and dangerous practice of chaining dogs. Cumberland County now has the best anti-tethering ordinance in the state of NC, which allows no chaining whatsoever. 

It has been an amazing journey and it’s just begun. The best is yet to come… "

Don't forget to ask about the $50 spay and neuter program for dogs and cats! (Dogs 75 pounds or more will be $100)


Spay & Neuter Program - New Price List

Due to changes in the NC spay & neuter program, increasing number of requests for our help, and the high cost of veterinary services, we are no longer able to offer a $25 spay and neuter program.

Spay or Neuter (dog or cat) - $50.00

Spay or neuter dog 75 lbs. or more - $100.00

Rabies Vaccination - $10

If your pet is pregnant or in heat at time of surgery, our local veterinarians will charge you an additional $20.00.

There is no extra charge at the Vass clinic.
