Animal Control to make more animals available for adoption

DALLAS – Gaston County’s Animal Control has begun making more animals available for adoption by the public.  While staff will continue to evaluate each impounded animal, those animals that don’t meet the adoption standard due to health or temperament concerns will now be made available for adoption. Previously, these animals were only available to be adopted by non-profit animal rescue groups.

The idea of making nearly every animal available for adoption to the public came up during informal chats with members of a newly formed focus group created by the Gaston County Board of Commissioners to review Animal Control practices.

To view animals for adoption please visit Gaston County Animal Control at 220 Leisure Lane, Dallas during business hours or the web at www.co.gaston.nc.us.

For further information contact R.C. Horton, Gaston County Police Department animal control administrator at 704-922-8677.
