Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation’s mission is to save animals from euthanasia in the Haywood County Animal Control facility (HCAC). Unfortunately, the number of animals who arrive at HCAC is so great that they can only remain there for a limited time before room must be made for more arrivals. They rescue those healthy and adoptable animals that are in danger of euthanasia.

You can support Sarge’s by becoming a member, donating items for resale, becoming a volunteer in the foster care program, youth program or adoption program, host fundraisers, or work as a shelter assistant. For more information, visit
