Sarge’s Animal Rescue

Our mission is to save animals from euthanasia in the Haywood County Animal Shelter. Unfortunately, the number of animals who arrive at HCAS is so great that they can only remain there for a limited time before room must be made for more arrivals. We rescue those healthy and adoptable animals who are in danger of euthanasia.


  1. Our November e-newsletter is available HERE.
  2. Have you ever filled out a Pet Care Questionnaire to enable the people around you to care for your pet as best they can in an emergency? Get one here –  Details about My Pet(s) – to print it out and put it on your fridge. Adding it to your will/estate file can also be useful!
  3. It’s time for that volunteer favorite – working the gift wrap table at Mast General Store on Main Street in Waynesville! You can help Sarge’s save innocent Haywood County cat and dog lives by signing up for one (or more!) 3 hour shifts to wrap gifts at Mast General. All donations collected in exchange for the gift wrap service provide Sarge’s with the opportunity to save lives. Also – it’s just fun! Shifts start December 1st and run through December 24th. Please visit HERE to sign up or you can call 828.400.5713 to sign up.
