Our Durham customers will likely be familiar with this next group, Independent Animal Rescue. They often hold adoption events at our Parkway Plaza store and we love having them!
In addition to rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming hundreds of dogs and cats each year, Independent Animal Rescue (IAR) operates an in-house spay/neuter clinic serving cats in the community as well as those in our foster program. Spay/neuter is a key piece of IAR’s mission to reduce the suffering of unwanted animals.
“Our mission is to rescue and care for cats and dogs in need and reduce the suffering of unwanted animals through our adoption, spay/neuter, and community education programs.
At IAR, we believe that the welfare of animals is paramount. We feel that we can alleviate problems associated with dog and cat overpopulation and abandonment using a 3-pronged approach: (1) Rescue and adoption of unwanted and abused animals; (2) funding and providing spay/neuter services; (3) education and outreach on animal welfare to our community.”
Here’s one of their adoptable pets, Usagi. Usagi is the sweetest little hunk of love you will ever meet! This darling four-year-old dog came to IAR as a stray. She is a snuggler through and through, loves to play, and is very smart and eager to please. Usagi adores her people, but is fearful at first of new humans and new dogs. She is searching for a kind, patient forever family who will continue to work with her as she slowly but surely builds confidence and gains trust. This special girl will bring boundless love, affection, and laughs to her forever home, and she deserves an equally special forever family who can help her feel safe and reciprocate that boundless love!
