Nash County Animal Friends’ Notebook
Puppies and kittens plus the adults are dying at the Nash County Animal Control Shelter. It is not the fault of the Nash County Animal Shelter staff. It is the fault of people with pets that aren’t fixed. People without their pets fixed also have to worry about their pets roaming in search of love, plus a whole lot more.

We know it isn’t your intent to kill a puppy or a kitten. You are thinking…I’ll find a home for them. You are thinking…I’ll make sure my pet doesn’t get out. You are thinking…. Well, it doesn’t matter what you are thinking except for one fact. Puppies and kittens are either turned in at the Shelter or found as strays all the time. And although we try very, very hard to find them homes, there is one fact. Most of them die. There are no accidental litters, just people who didn’t try hard enough! The biggest problem is feral cats! If your outdoor cat has kittens, most likely they will be feral and they will die if not caught young enough to be tamed!

Some facts: The reason that many stray adult male dogs end up in the Shelter is because they go looking for love in all the wrong places. Dogs can travel miles when a female is in heat. The reason that the majority of pets killed at the Shelter is cats, is due to people having outdoor pets that are not fixed. If you don’t fix them, please at least keep them inside, safer!
