Gaston County NC Animal Control Center is not what they say they are. The Animal Control center has claimed to be a rescue center, but by using gas chambers, they kill off way more animals than they actually save.

Do it for survivors like Daniel, the Miracle Beagle, who helped beat the odds of surviving a gas chamber and all those who didn't make it. SAVE Animals, don't kill them.

As of Friday, November 16, 2012, Gaston County NC Animal Control center killed a 15-month-old Collie Mix, even after someone posted (via Facebook) they had a foster for the pup. The Animal Control center has terrible communication skills (never get back! always waste time) and they are a Kill Shelter, Not a Rescue Shelter.

They pride themselves on helping animals, but what really needs to be done, is for Non-Kill Rescues in the area and all those who can help, to rescue out all the dogs and cats of Gaston County NC Animal Control & Shut Them Down for Good!

      It’s astonishing that in 2014 people still haven’t faced the fact that we don’t treat animals the way they deserve and we should be ashamed of ourselves. The animal control center is nothing more than a building people drop of unwanted animals to be killed. NC should pass legislation to ban puppy mills and the sale of puppies in pet stores. I think NC would be better off encouraging stores to allow animal rescues to come into these stores to sell their available pets.

      Because we tried to rescue a dog from here, and the lack of response and communication solely on their part was appalling. It became obvious that they did not care. And when this dog became lost in the system and we could not pick her up on the day they advised us to, they told us to just come get another dog as if they had no individual worth.

      This is horrible! Do they get pleasure from gassing defenseless animals? This is animal cruelty. Shut this place down NOW. Stop the killing!
