OF ONSLOW COUNTY, INC

WHILE THE MISSION OF CAPS is to focus on saving cats and dogs and making them healthy and happy, its work is not complete until these precious animals are placed in loving homes.

Kittens and puppies require extra attention much in the same way infants do until they learn what is appropriate behavior in the home. Kittens and puppies tend to be easily frightened and may become skittish around young children. Like teenagers, young cats and dogs also go through awkward developmental stages. By the time these animals reach adulthood, they have already grown into their personalities and are fully house-broken.

If you have small children in the home, an adult cat or dog is a more suitable choice. If you already have a cat or dog and are looking for a companion, it is best to select one that is close in age. Cats and dogs are great company for each other, and you become the recipient of double the love!
