North Carolina has one of the highest euthanasia rates in the country. Because adoption is not the complete answer, AWARE is working hard to reduce the euthanasia rate at Tri-County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center by increasing the spay/neuter rate in our area. Between July 2009 and June 2015, AWARE has contributed to the spay or neuter of 1,169 cats and 369 dogs.
