SANFORD, N.C. (AP) - Nearly 700 dogs and cats rescued from a Hoke County shelter will be available for adoption for three days at their temporary shelter in Sanford.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is hosting the event, which begins Friday and ends Sunday. The animals were rescued in January from The Haven, an unlicensed shelter in Raeford.

The facility’s owners were charged with animal cruelty and possession of a controlled substance, stemming from an animal medication not authorized on the property. They later surrendered the animals to the ASPCA.

The shelter will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day at 2215 Nash St. in Sanford.

Potential adopters should bring one government-issued photo identification, proof of address and an appropriately sized pet transfer crate, if possible.
