Our Furry Friends Need Forever Homes

Faithful Friends Animal Sanctuary is Rowan County’s first no-kill sanctuary for homeless cats and dogs.

Our adoption area has 28 indoor/outdoor dog runs and 23 stainless steel cat cages. Additional animal quarters are located in our Quarantine and Isolation section, which is a separately ventilated area of the building. Our cats have a screened in sun porch and our dogs have a kennel run, play yards and walking paths throughout the property for exercise.

All of our animals are examined thoroughly upon intake, given age-appropriate vaccinations, internal and external parasite treatments, canine heart worm or feline FIV/leukemia testing, and spay/neuter.

Some of our furry friends come in worse for wear – they have had rough lives or rough beginnings. We spend time with these troubled souls, helping them to heal and acclimating them to social interactions with humans and other pets. Our adoption application is thorough so that we can be sure you are paired up with the right furry friend for you and your family.

Adoption Process

Complete and submit an adoption application. Please take the time to thoroughly complete the application so that it can be efficiently processed. This also helps us determine a good match for your family. We have gotten to know the pet’s personalities and this is very helpful in selecting the right pet for your family. Incomplete applications will not be processed.

Application is reviewed by the staff. Average application response time is 1 to 3 days. The more information we have the more quickly we will be able to respond to your application. Please ensure all requested information is accurate and complete! Each application we receive is unique and may require one or more of the following: Vet reference on current or past animals and/or a home visit. All renters must provide written authorization from their landlord allowing the pet.

We will schedule a time for you and all the members of your family or household to meet the new pet. Since this is a new member of your family, we need all individuals in the household to be happy with the choice. This includes a meet & greet with your current pet(s).
