In April, 2013 a group of dedicated, community-minded volunteers formed Randolph County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA). The organization’s mission is to support a pet-friendly, compassionate community committed to ending euthanasia of adoptable dogs and cats by providing:
- Community-based solutions to pet overpopulation, including a low or no-cost spay and neuter program.
- An innovative program in schools, educating students about bite prevention and responsible pet ownership.
- An easily accessible community center.
Asheboro is undergoing a Renaissance, and part of its transformation is into a more dog-friendly city. As a community, we are extremely proud of initiatives such as the Sunset Theater, the Senior Center, and the Randolph Arts Guild. It is now time to focus on the plight of homeless animals and on the RSPCA Adoption/Education/Community Center, a family friendly facility and organization that will eventually have a dog park, hiking trails, and a memorial garden. Our vision is that Asheboro will be a place that attracts retirees with pets, a city where families can include their pets in outings and activities, a community where our furry friends are treated with love, respect and compassion.
