      Application Information and Instructions
    2. Iredell County’s Animal Services Department (ICAS) process more than 4,000 lost and unwanted animals each year. Unfortunately, not all the animals will be eligible for immediate adoption. Those arriving with serious medical conditions or displaying fractious or aggressive behavior may have a better chance of being adopted if released to a qualified rescue partner who can improve the animal’s condition. In order to keep the shelter population at a minimum, some very adoptable animals may be offered to qualified rescue partners as well.
    3. Qualified rescue organizations having a current 501(c)3 status that have the ability and knowledge to participate as a rescue partner whose purpose and goal is to help rescue animals from the shelter, must first complete this application and return it to:
