BENEFITING: FAITHFUL FRIENDS ANIMAL SANCTUARY
EVENT DATE: Apr 03, 2016
According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), approximately 5 million to 7 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. Five out of ten dogs in shelters and seven out of ten cats in shelters are destroyed simply because there is no one to adopt them. In Rowan County alone, nearly 400 animals are euthanized per month.
These staggering statistics have been the motivation for a local grassroots organization to take a stand: Faithful Friends Animal Sanctuary (FFAS). Tthe founding members of FFAS thought that there must be a better way to care for the animals in our community, and the vision of an animal sanctuary was born.
FFAS is a no-kill shelter for abused and abandoned dogs and cats that provides health care, spaying/neutering, protection, warmth, care, and love while awaiting adoption.
