Tri-County Animal Clinic, Murphy NC.


  

It is our goal to support the local rescues in their efforts to promote spay\neuter programs, find homes for these dear little ones and to generally educate the public.  We intend to prove that rescue animals are not "broken" and can provide invaluable service, great and small, to their potential new companions. Rescue animals have gone on to be ESA (emotional support animals), search and rescue, service animals, therapy animals, and even movie stars (Benji, Spike of Old Yellar the movie, Morris the cat, just to name a few).  Our "furry angels" teach us everyday about laughter, fun, love, and compassion. It is our deepest desire to inspire and share those same values at the Hayesville Pet Celebration.
