Cat Caught Your Heart?

Wellsboro needs some new homes for your feline friends!


by Joe Carreon - January 24, 2014

Today’s story is the last in our current 3-part series of animal adoption features, but there are plenty of potential family members still in need of a home! Sarah Vickery, Jennifer Thomas from KC 101 and a few others from Wellsboro Home Page had the opportunity to meet and greet all the feline friends that the Wellsboro Animal Care Sanctuary is currently housing. Wendy Reber (director of the sanctuary) showed us some of the cats and gave us details on their daily care and all that goes into making sure they have everything they need until they find their forever home. We also were allowed a sneak peek at some puppies that will soon be available for adoption!

The mission and goal of the Animal Care Sanctuary is to promote the humane care and treatment of all animals in need of protection including rescued, abandoned and abused animals. Animal Care Sanctuary is a no-kill, non-profit organization located in East Smithfield & Wellsboro, Pennsylvania. Their primary purpose in adopting animals is not to find them a quick home but a forever home. Their goal is to have all of their animals be adopted into families where they will be cared for and loved for the rest of their lives. To this end, potential adopters are required to complete their adoption application. Behavioral assessments are performed on all dogs and the results are used to make the best possible matches between dog and family. An ACS dog or cat must meet all members of the adoptive family before going home with them. They do dog-to-dog introductions on site at the sanctuary to help to ensure a good match with dogs already in the home.

ACS is a 501(c)3 organization that relies entirely on donations. No local, state, or federal government assistance is received.

For more information on how you can adopt a special pet, please call 570-724-3687. And thanks again to Wendy Reber for being our special guest and granting us access to the wonderful facility she oversees.
