    The time has finally arrived. By court order, the North Carolina
    Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (NCDA&CS) has the
    authority to direct the removal of at least 350 animals from the All
    Creatures Great and Small (ACGS) site in Hendersonville, North
    Carolina. I respectfully ask that ANY group that has space please
    make arrangements to accept as many animals from ACGS as quickly as
    possible.

    The current on-site animal count today is as follows: 284 dogs, 220
    cats, 6 rabbits, 2 guinea pigs.

    The procedure for adopting from ACGS as a rescue/humane group at no
    cost to your group is as follows, and must be adhered to:

    Go to our website http://www.agr. state.nc. us/vet/welfare. htm , click
    on the ACGS button, download and complete the Request for Adoption
    form and fax it to our Animal Welfare Section.
    We will verify that you are a legitimate rescue or humane
    organization, provide your entity's name to ACGS so they will know
    you will be coming soon, and respond to your contact within 3 days
    (probably much quicker than that).
    You will sign a brief MOA that releases NCDA&CS from any liability,
    as required by our attentive legal support.
    You can then go to ACGS and request to adopt however many animals
    your facility can properly manage. Please do not go before you
    finish steps 1-3.
    Upon completion of the adoption, you then will fill out the Notice of
    Adoption form and fax it to our office, so we can maintain an
    accurate count of animals removed under the Consent Order.
    You will be thanked profusely by all animal lovers, including us in
    NCDA&CS, for helping get these animals into appropriate situations!


    Please feel free to contact me directly with questions or concerns –
    and thank you for helping us help these animals.
