Northeastern NC SPCA Buys Larger Building

The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Northeastern North Carolina is trying to raise $350,000 to move to a new, larger location in Pasquotank County.

The Daily Advance of Elizabeth City reported that the SPCA has paid $300,000 for a warehouse and more than 3 acres of land. It needs the additional money to renovate the 6,000-square-foot building.

The president of the SPCA of Northeastern North Carolina says staff will be able to separate healthy animals from sick ones in new space. President Kim Parrish says the facility also will have rooms for feral cats and pregnant animals.

The SPCA of Northeastern North Carolina is a private, nonprofit organization that provides animal shelter services in Pasquotank through a contract with the county.

    Sorry JTurner, you are mistaken. A life is not a life. You've been watching too much Disney where they assign human characteristics to animals. Animals are souless creatures, when they die, they are no more. You cannot compare an animals' life to a human life, don't degrade our species like that!!

      You're absolutely correct J-Man truly you are wise. My only criticism of your post is youthanize is spelled Euthanize. But other than that you're dead on...get it dead on!

    If they would just youthanize all those animals, they wouldn't need another building. If you get too much junk in your home, you don't build a new house, you get rid of the junk.

      Excuse me J-man, What kind of human being are you that you would compare animals' lives to junk/ clutter in a house. A life is a life weither human or animal. The answer is never to kill but to get these animals fixed and then release them back into the environment in which they came. Shame on you!

    They should spend that money saving animals.
