In years past, our local animal shelter euthanized between 2,000 and 3,000 dogs and cats each year. Now, that number is reduced by several hundred per year. Since 2011, Healing Springs Animal hospital has participated strongly in a Twin County Humane Society effort to rescue as many of these dogs and cats as possible. With the noteworthy cooperation of the City of Galax, Twin County Volunteers select dogs and cats otherwise destined for euthanasia and bring them to Healing Springs. We provide free housing, free services, and at-cost supplies so a larger number of these pets can be rescued. They receive the medical services necessary so they will be eligible for transportation to no-kill adoption services in larger cities that routinely import pets for adoption. Through this effort, Healing Springs directly contributes to the rescue of several hundred pets each year.
- Adopt, Spay, Neuter
- Buy treats, food, and other items from the Humane Society section of the Healing Springs lobby. Healing Springs dedicates a portion of its retail space to fund raising for the Twin County Humane Society. 100% of the price of items sold from that space is donated to the Twin County Humane Society. These funds help pay for transportation of the pets, the cost of vaccines, etc.
