November 18, 2015 Media Release

Currituck Animal Services & Control successfully transferred 24 kittens to a regional rescue organization in the hope of finding each kitten a permanent home.

Volunteers with Cat Rescue Incorporated of Chesapeake, Virginia, picked up the kittens from the Currituck County Animal Shelter on Wednesday, November 18, 2015. Transferring the animals to the rescue group provides an excellent opportunity for the animals to find a permanent home, and also allows for more space in Currituck County’s animal shelter.

Currituck has several cats and dogs which are available and ready to be adopted.  

Cat Rescue Incorporated is a non-profit, volunteer organization which utilizes a network of foster homes throughout the Hampton Roads area to provide temporary placement for cats while its members attempt to find permanent homes for the animals. According to the organization, it has found homes for more than 5,000 cats since it was founded in 1997.
