New animal adoption facility to open in Cary

Posted June 8, 2009

— A new animal adoption center is coming to Cary.

Palisades began in 2004 when 13 kittens and two mother cats were rescued from an area shelter. At first, Palisades focused only on cat and kitten adoptions. In 2007, the program expanded to include dog rescue.

Animals are often brought to Palisades from other shelters that use gas as a form of euthanasia.

For more information on the adoption facility, visit the Palisades Web site.

    If we had more room we'd adopt another pet or 2 but with 2 cats and 2 dogs and no fenced yard, it wouldn't be fair to the animal I guess. One of our dogs was adopted out of Columbus CO shelter (very high kill). Both dogs are mutts and we wouldn't take a million dollars for either of them. 1 cat we got from 2nd Chance Pet Adoptions -- he was 7 months old with a rotated cornea (he can look at you and around the corner at the same time I think) and was probably considered unadoptable. We've had him 10 years. If people love their pets, they should be responsible about spaying and neutering....simple as that.

    Come work in the shelter, panthers254. NC kills more animals than most states. As one woman told me...she wanted her cat "to experience the miracle of birth". Truth is that they will "experience the reality of death by injection." How dare she subject these animals to her ignorance and those in shelters who have to do her dirty work. Unfortunately, she is not alone in her insanity. Then, there's those who don't want a "pre-owned" animal, one that is blemished or not pure they buy one from some backyard Bubba. Of course, more reality shows us that 1/4 of shelter animals ARE purebreeds...usually from those same Bubbas.

    So, got any better suggestions to reduce the # of animals killed in our state?

    here and now, way to be openminded and nonjudgemental.

    Hopefully they will be more successful than the PETA run shelters..

    If people just spayed & neutered, NC would not be such a Nation-Wide leader in over 250,000 animal killings per year. It's ridiculouls that people are just so selfish or stupid. Until we evolve, we need lots of shelters.

    And TheOracle, most cities have ordinances that say cats cannot be outside. Are you still in the city/county limits? Or, maybe you wore your "I BBQ anything with fur" t-shirt the day you went? ;-) Have you tried Durham's Shelter? 560.0640 They don't mention anything about "indoors" on their FAQ.

    We live in the country and tried to adopt a barn cat all over the triangle. They all said "indoor cats only". Do they believe it is better to kill a cat than give it a home in the country?
