RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Hundreds of animals rescued from a Hoke County shelter are now being cared for and prepared for adoption.
Animal Control was under the Board of Health at the time and we faced many obstacles and not much support from the County. We had not yet established our name, so we piggybacked on other rescue groups in Raleigh and attended their adoption events at the Petsmart. It was an uphill battle to make a name for ourselves and to get the community to take us seriously. We even created a D/B/D Paws For Life, in hopes to generate more of a feel good vibe for the organization. The current members attended countless Commissioner meetings as well as BOH meetings to get our voices heard on serious issue in Franklin County.
Hilary coordinates the Raleigh/Wake Forest adoption events. She also handles phone calls to HEART, animal intake, medical needs, and organizes events for the Raleigh/Wake Forest area. Most of all, she keeps our money flowing so we can continue to give our animals the best care possible!
The Raleigh County Animal Rescue (RCAR) is a small, nonprofit, no-kill organization. We have been blessed to see our vision to help our furry friends become a reality, but we have many more mountains to climb to become the viable organization we would like to be. We thank our members, volunteers and those who support us, but we are always in need of more. Please consider helping us in anyway you can and by helping us, you will be helping our animal companions.The Raleigh County Animal Rescue (RCAR) whose home base is located in Coal City, WV was active in rescuing our pet companions prior to becoming an organization in March 2003. The RCAR is a small "no-kill" organization and operates only through donations and volunteers. Currently we are dedicated to helping homeless, abandoned, or abused animals. Our efforts are guided toward finding permanent "furever" homes for our foster pets. Along with this, we stress the importance of neutering and spaying all pets in order to maintain their good health and benefit society. RCAR may also be contacted for our Low-Income Spay/Neuter Program.The Raleigh County Animal Rescue (RCAR), is a no-kill, all volunteer, animal rescue, that operates on donations, and we foster in our homes. The Humane Society of Raleigh County (HSRC) a.k.a. Raleigh County Animal Shelter (RCAS), are two totally different organizations. Wayne is our workhorse for all of HEART! He handles phone calls, emails for the Raleigh/Wake Forest area, medical supplies, delivery of supplies to foster homes, transport of animals to and from vet appointments, and helps coordinate the Raleigh/Wake Forest adoption events.
