Our Advisors & Volunteers
Dr Jennie Stewart, Stewart's Mountain View Animal Hospital, vet of record
Dr Stacy Jones, Cane River Veterinary Wellness Clinic, spay/neuter vet
Our local Law Enforcement organizations are an integral part of our operations, and are at the forefront of investigating cases of possible animal cruelty, abuse, and neglect.
Many thanks to the Mitchell County Sheriff’s Department, the Spruce Pine Police Department, and the Bakersville Police Department.
Our advisors are community members and past board members who generously offer their time and expertise to consult and assist with our ongoing efforts.
Volunteers are people who care about animals and want to help. And they are crucial to our work. Yes, we always need cash donations but it doesn't end there. Just as important are the many ways you can help the animals of Mitchell County by offering your time and skills to the shelter.
