- GREAT DOGS need HELP!!!


5/25/16: New animals added, more sponsorships & updates!
5/24/16: More sponsorship & more animals in need!
5/23/16: Updates, sponsorships added & new animals added
5/19/16: New animals added
5/18/16: Original email sent out


These animals are located at Iredell County Animal Services in Statesville, NC!


At this time, Iredell County Animal Services does NOT have transport "connections", so it will be UP TO THE RESCUE wanting to pull the animal to coordinate transport!


**If there is an animal listed that you are interested in pulling or have questions about please email Tina at: rescuepets@co.iredell.nc.us       (at     co.iredell.nc.us), and please provide the animal's name (and/or Animal ID#), your name, and the rescue group you are affiliated with!  


If you have not pulled from ICAS before please fill out Rescue Group Agreement (Breed Placement Package) that is attached.


We now offer health certificates for animals pulled from ICAS by the destination shelter/rescue/home for a $6 fee per animal on the health certificate. If an animal is being pulled by a rescue for another rescue we will not be able to do a health certificate. The final rescue/home must be the one to "pull" the dog. If the pulling rescue is new you MUST submit the Breed Placement Package BEFORE any hold or transport will be planned!


**Once a rescue commits to pulling a dog(s), they have 48 business hours to arrange transport to pick the dog(s) up from the shelter unless otherwise arranged with the rescue coordinator.  The hours for the shelter are Mon-Fri 10:30am-5:00 pm & Saturday 10am-2pm.  If the rescue does not correspond with the rescue coordinator for 48 hours post commitment, the dog(s) will be offered to other rescues.**

Luca (A205175) is a 2 year old, 48 lb, girl that came in as a stray and was never claimed by an owner.  Luca would more than likely do best with a calm dog with a slow introduction as she was scared of the higher energy dog that she was tested with.  Sadly, Luca is heartworm positive, but otherwise she seems to be healthy.  We are reaching out for help.  Heartworms, which now is very treatable, should not be the end of the road for a sweet and young dog!

Mya (A204964) is a 3 year old, Pit Bull that was surrendered to the shelter by her owner because they had sudden medical disabilities, that made them no longer able to care for her.  Owner stated they had owned her for 3 years, but that Mya was 4-5 years old.  Mya has a lot of energy which is not uncommon for the breed, especially when they have lived their lives in a dog pen like Mya has.  Mya was tested with a female dog of smaller size, and was extremely playful, and had lots of energy.  She pulls hard when walking on a leash, but we are sure that has a lot to do with not having an outlet for her energy.  When we went to place Mya up for adoption we discovered this loving girl is heartworm positive, not only did she live outside in a dog pen, but it appears was not given heartworm preventative while she lived outside.  Mya is 60 lbs, and her ears go every which way and is the funniest thing!  Pit Bulls, or breeds that look like them, are hard to place even when young and healthy.  Now we have Mya who is an adult, needs some training, but is super lovable, dog friendly and heartworm positive!  Please don't let this be the end for her, she deserves to know what a great life is like!

Knox (A092349) is a very handsome 9 year old Lab that was surrendered to the shelter by his owner.  His owners health has declined, and is having to move for medical care, and unable to take Knox with him. Knox's owner stated that Knox lived outside in a dog pen.  He did state when he did have Knox inside he never used the bathroom in the house.  His owner also stated that Knox gets along okay with children, but is a little hyper, and that Knox does well with other dogs.  Though Knox is 9 years old, like many Labs, he is still very playful and very friendly.  This guy loves just walking around and enjoys life!  Sadly a life of not being on heartworm preventative and being outside, Knox is heartworm positive.  Our vet also found an approximately 2 inch mass on the left flank that is not attached to deep tissue.  This guy is just as sweet and friendly as they come, and we really don't want him staying in a shelter when he could have many more years in a home like he deserves!  We did test Knox with a female dog of equal size, and he was very playful (he may be a little overwhelming for some dogs that might not be able to handle his energy; typical Lab energy). We are reaching out to rescue groups in hopes someone can take this boy in!

Red (A190399) was surrendered to the shelter by her owner.  They had originally adopted her from the shelter when Red was just a small puppy.  They stated they are unable to keep up with her.  During Red's medical exam our vet discovered that Red has a grade 2-3/6 heart murmur.  The owners stated that Red was an inside dog majority of the time.  They also stated that she is playful with children and other animals, but she does like to jump.  Though many dogs can live a long and healthy life with a heart murmur, it is one of those things that there is no guarantee with either way.  We are hoping with her being an adult, that maybe the murmur will not worsen.  Many vets will monitor the murmur, and if it gets worse will have different options in place for care, but it is hard to say if it will go away, stay the same or worsen.  We are hoping someone sees what a sweet and friendly girl this is that they take on the chance of what could be.  It is very possible Red will live many, many, many years with this condition.  We just hope someone is willing to give Red the life she deserves, whether it's for the next year or the next 10 years!  Red is full grown, and weighs 52 lbs.

Flounder (A205084) who is about 2 years old, came in with Opossum (A205085).  Flounder was originally nervous, but not aggressive.  He was tested with a female dog of a slightly smaller size and was passive towards her.  Originally Flounder, who was on a chain, was extremely territorial on his property, but has done well at the shelter.  Now that Flounder has been at the shelter for 2 weeks, we have noticed that he may be becoming barrier protective (but it has not been really bad, but we feel if he stays here much longer he will).  Flounder is heartworm positive, and weighs 62 lbs.

Opossum (A205085) is a 1 year old.  He was brought in after his chain collar became embedded about a 1/2 an inch deep, and 7 inches long around his neck.  The chain had to be surgically removed.  At 1st when the Officers went out to the home Opossum was territorial (not uncommon for a chained, intact male, large bred dog).  He was very friendly once here at the shelter.  We have noticed that he is a little territorial over his kennel run (but not really bad, but we do fear if here much longer he could become that way).  Neutering him would benefit him greatly.  Sadly life outside on a chain and no preventative, Opossum is also heartworm positive.  Opossums neck is healing fantastically, and he dog tested well with a female dog of slightly smaller size.  Opossum weighs 58 lbs.

Jasmine (A205209) and her brother, Johnathan (A205207), were brought to the shelter after someone "rescued" them.  They stated the puppies had been living under a porch for about 2 weeks.  They were unable to handle pups and had no luck at re-homing them.  These dogs are what we would call "feral", born outside and surviving on their own without people.  You can clearly tell they have not been socialized.  We also noticed that Jasmine had thinning fur and skin scraped her, which was positive for demodex (non-contagious mange).  Thus far Jonathan seems to have no thinning fur, but it is possible he could also "break" with it if stressed.  Due to their fearful behavior we are unable to place them for general adoption. These puppies will need a lot of work.  We have not been able to really handle them much and their fearfulness has not improved, but it has not worsened either.  We are reaching out to see if anyone has experience with feral dogs that might be able to help!  We have aged these pups at 4 months old and they will more than likely be large when full grown.

$10 ADOPTION/RESCUE PULL!  ALL CATS & KITTENS AT ICAS ARE $10 ONLY (INCLUDES ALL MEDICAL WORK)!!!
Sebastian (A201660) was surrendered to the shelter and then adopted from us, but sadly was returned.  The adopter stated that Sebastian was too bossy towards the other cats and wouldn't let them eat, and that he "squalls real loud first thing in the mornings".  We have had Sebastian around other cats, and not had any issues.  The adopters did have Sebastian in the home all the time (the previous owners stated that Sebastian was also in the home majority of the time), so he is used to being an inside cat.  The adopter also stated that Sebastian does well with children.  While here, Sebastian did come down with an URI.  We started treatment and he is almost finishes with his treatments.  He seems to be doing very well and have not noticed any sneezing. We are offering Sebastian at a discounted rate of $35!  He has been at the shelter over a month and been treated for a URI, it is time this boy makes it out of the shelter and finds a GERAT home!  Sebastian is 8 months old and looking for the love he deserves!

Intake (return) date: 4/20/16

This girl escaped being put down twice!  Don't let it be for nothing!
Mabe (A205108) was found in the middle of the highway.  No owner ever came forward for her while she was at the shelter.  Mabe was sweet, but nervous when she was brought in. She became more nervous once in a kennel run and was scheduled twice to be put down, but for one reason or another got skipped.  The next time we got Mabe out of her kennel and walked her around some.  Mabe became much friendlier (she would lean back, go to back of kennel, lower head and give a low growl and "whale eyes").  Mabe truly opens up when outside of her kennel run.  Mabe is still a timid girl, but she is not aggressive, and we have a hunch that once in a home Mabe will not have nowhere near these issues.  A lot of times, the shelter brings out the worse in a dog.  Our vet has aged Mabe at 2 years old, heartworm NEGATIVE, and she is 53 lbs.

Heather (A205161), Hanna (A205164) & Pete (A205163) are 9 week old kittens in need to be pulled!  Kittens had an URI (sneezing), and started treatment on 5/16/16!
Primm (A205025) is a very sweet, 7 month old, short haired cat.  She too came down with a cold, and started treatment on 5/17/16.
So far kittens are doing great, but we are running out of space, and cannot continue to treat cats and hold them while they are coming in by the dozens (sometimes up to 30 a day)!
