Frequently Asked Questions

How do you help the shelter animals?

We provide enrichment and other resources for the animals during their time at the shelter. Enrichment adds to the quality of life of the animals. We help provide enrichment for dogs, cats, guinea pigs, and any other species in need during their time at the shelter.

Why is enrichment important?

Pets at the shelter spend a large portion of their day in their kennels. Providing mental and physical enrichment keeps their brains and bodies happy and healthy while they wait for their forever families to come find them.

Is friends of gcas part of the shelter?

Friends of GCAS is an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and is not a part of the Guilford County government. However, our efforts are dedicated to the animals at the Guilford County Animal Resource Center.
