New website format & categories, including explanations (to view a pet just click on category):
All Animals: This category is a complete list of all animals currently being sheltered by Gaston County Animal Control. (AG) Adoptable Pets (Gold): These animals meet very strict standards to be selected for inclusion in the Gaston County Animal Control Gold adoption program. Animals in this category have been evaluated by Animal Control staff for superior temperament, health and behavior. They have also received an initial set of vaccinations. Health, temperament, and available space permitting, staff will attempt to hold these pets past their posted adopt/rescue/euthanasia date, in the hope of placement in a permanent home. (A) Adoptable Pets: These animals they may be adopted and full veterinary services identified in the adoption-medical contract will be provided under the direction of the participating veterinarian. They do not however, currently meet standards for inclusion in the Gaston County Animal Control Gold adoption program. No direct or implied assurance has been given that these animals are either behaviorally suitable or healthy and a waiver to this effect will have to be signed by the adopter prior to adoption. (RG) Available to Rescue Group: These animals are only available to rescue groups due to presenting specific health or temperament concerns, which require specialized expertise. (OC) Owner Contact: This category includes animals where Animal Control has information relating to ownership. Efforts are being made to satisfy legal requirements to make contact with the owner. Animals in this category may not be claimed or adopted until all legal requirements to contact an owner are satisfied. (ORO) Owner Reclaim: Animals listed under this category can only be reclaimed by their owner due to severe behavioral issues identified by Animal Control staff. Livestock: Livestock or other animals not routinely recognized as companion animals currently sheltered by Animal Control. Contact Animal Control for additional information on any of these animals, as different species fall under various legal regulations pertaining to legal holding periods and placement options for these animals. Adopt/Rescue/Euthanasia Date: This date reflects when the legal holding period is satisfied and an animal can be released. On this date, an animal can be adopted, claimed by a rescue group, or euthanized. Anyone interested in claiming or adopting an animal should contact Animal Control PRIOR to the animal’s adopt/rescue/euthanasia date. Once interest in claiming or adopting is confirmed, the pet will be held through regular business hours on its adopt/rescue/euthanasia date to allow for the claim or adoption. Said animal is subject to be euthanized upon failure to claim or adopt the animal as described. In situations where multiple groups or individuals are interested in adopting a specific animal, the animal will be made available on its adopt/rescue/euthanasia date on a “first come, first served” basis. Gaston County’s Code of Ordinances, Sec. 3-9(e)(2), authorizes the Animal Control Administrator to reduce an animal’s holding period if the animal is “badly wounded, sick or diseased”, for euthanasia purposes. Foster: Some animals listed on the website will reflect “foster”, as the cage holding area. Foster indicates the animal is being housed and cared for by a local representative of a 501-c (3) humane/rescue group, outside of the animal shelter. VTech: Some animals listed on the website will reflect “vtech”, as the cage holding area. Vtech (or Vet Tech) indicates the animal has satisfied the required holding period and is receiving additional medical care and attention through participation in Gaston College’s Veterinarian Technology program. Under federal guidelines, animals under the care and custody of the Vet Tech Program cannot be considered for claim or adoption until returning to Animal Control authority. Animals go to vtech on Monday morning and return to the shelter on Friday morning. Please be mindful of the rescue/adopt/euth dates and consider them accurate. Animals can be picked up late afternoon the working day before but there is required paperwork, etc so make sure you have your information correct. PLAN AHEAD ! Classification means nothing as if an Adopt Gold is there more than 10 days, it can be euth'd if necessary.
