2012 Spay A Stray Campaign
Last year, in 2011 thousands of cats were euthanized in the New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick County areas because they could not find a home.
So, this year in 2012 Adopt-An-ANGEL has already spent over $25,0000 spaying and neutering as many cats as possible. Why? To prevent the births of hundreds of unwanted kittens this summer that flood these already overcrowded animal controls.
We spent $17,500 in 2011 because we believe that spaying/neutering is the other half of the answer to animal homelessness.
We must REDUCE THE SUPPLY through spaying and neutering while WE INCREASE DEMAND through aggressive adoptions.
Each Spay/Rabies shot costs the organization $65. For every $65 that comes in we will put out another voucher. Each spay will PREVENT the birth of another 4-6 homeless kittens. Adopt an ANGEL has kicked in the first $5,000 to SPAY as many cats as we can! Won't you help us FIX MORE for an even greater impact? Where There's a Will, There's A Spay! It's very simple! Won't you help us? PLEASE DONATE BELOW! We cannot do this without YOUR help.

When adopting a pet, please consider adopting an adult pet, a black pet or a pet with special needs.These pets are the first to be abandoned and the last to be adopted.
During the summer months, hundreds of kittens and puppies are born that make it almost impossible for homeless adults to get adopted.They are just too cute and too hard to compete with, but before you adopt that cute kitten or puppy, consider this...
Reasons to Adopt an Older Pet (or full grown)
Why are black cats and dogs often overlooked?
Here are Some of Our Special Needs Animals
My name is Summer and I am a sweet little girl. I was adopted from BCAS, but returned to the shelter when I tested positive for heartworms. I am so pretty with my sleek, shiny coat. I weigh around 40 pounds so I am one of those little black labs. I am sponsored by Monica Bennett. Thanks Monica! I am a friendly girl and I love people, but I may be best suited in a home without other dogs. I am a little defensive around them when I am on a leash. I walk really well on a leash though---I hardly pull at all. Adopt an ANGEL is paying for my heartworm treatment so there is no cost to my adopter. However, if you would like to help AAA pay for it you can donate to my cause at www.adoptanangel.net or by sending in a check to Adopt an ANGEL, PO Box 15095, Wilm, NC 28408.
My name is Ben and I was wandering the roads alone in rural Brunswick County when I was rescued by my foster mom. Of course no one claimed me, and to make matters worse, I tested positive for heartworms. My treatment will be around $250, plus the cost of my neuter and my shots will be close to $100. It will not be cheap for AAA so please contribute to my cause by clicking on the paypal donation or by sending in a check to AAA, at PO Box 15095, Wilm, NC 28408.
I really need to be around people, and I do okay with dogs and other cats. I am not real social with them, but I do tolerate them. I may suffer from some hearing loss due to my thyroid problem so an indoor/outdoor (or indoor only) home is better for me. I am middle aged and take thyroid medication twice a day and it's easy for me to take if you slip it in my food. It's cheap too. I am homeless because my owner had to move.
