News & Events
On Saturday, March 8, a group of dedicated Giles County Animal Rescue volunteers brought some cute and furry friends — 8 dogs and a cat — to the grand opening of the Tractor Supply store in Pearisburg. By the end of this day-long adoption event, several dogs had found their forever homes.
Volunteers from GCAR and Luv4Hounds set up tables, made available information about spay/neuter practices, provided face painting for children, and let the adoptable animals visit with the store’s customers.
The event would not have been possible, GCAR President Christine Link-Owens said, without the kindness of Tractor Supply management, who moved their own inventory around to make room for the GCAR tables and animal’s crates. “Three cheers to Tractor Supply for supporting animal rescue groups such as ours,” Link-Owens added.
She also extended her thanks to the numerous volunteers who took shifts throughout the day. “It shows what a great team we have right now,” she said. GCAR was able to connect with many community members during this event, and several rescue groups found homes for some wonderful pets.
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. County employees are there on Sat & Sun 2-4pm. Or make an appt with the Animal Control Officer. Thanks for visiting our website!!
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.
