News & Events

Shelter is Open on Weekends or Make an Appointment

Please visit the shelter to see all the pets available! We try to get as many photos as possible of the shelter pets posted. However, due to the constant revolving door of pets in and out, our volunteers have a difficult time keeping up sometimes.  Please remember, we are volunteers and we do as much as we can as soon as we can, but can't be at the shelter every day. Please visit the shelter to see all the pets available. Volunteers are there on Sat & Sun 2-4pm. Or make an appt with the Animal Control Officer. Thanks for visiting our website!!

Pembroke Heritage Festival

Thanks to everyone who came out to support our rescue efforts by donating and purchasing items at our booth at the 2012 Pembroke Heritage Festival. We also appreciate the turn-out for the pet show. It's always nice to see happy pets with their forever families.

Save Your Ink Cartridges!

Save those empty ink & toner cartridges. Recycle and save a life! Giles Co. Animal Rescue wants your empty cartridges. The money earned with this recylcing program is used for our Feral Cat Program. We trap/neuter/release feral cats to control the over population. Think of all those cartridges being thrown away and they can now be put to use. Businesses, individuals, students please take the time to save them and save a life! Contact Christine at for more info.
