Pet Lodging, Health Care, Adoption Make Rocky Mount Tails Wag

Visitors and future residents of Rocky Mount are given a warm welcome, and that's not just limited to two-legged guests. When in need of pet boarding, in-home pet sitting, training or exercise, Rocky Mount residents know to call Sisters Two Pet Crew Inc. Coats Veterinary Hospital, Riverside Veterinary Hospital and Banfield Pet Hospital treat Rocky Mount pets, including emergency, house call and adoption services. Patrons of Rocky Mount's Motel 6 may have dogs stay in their room free of charge, while Comfort Inn, Candlewood Suites Rocky Mount, Residence Inn and both Best Westerns gladly house dogs, provided they are given advance notice and a small fee. Looking to adopt a furry friend? Many precious pets are available through Rocky Mount Animal Control and the Edgecombe-Nash Humane Society. Cat lovers in particular should take notice of Merlin's Song, a not-for-profit feline rescue organization with a non-euthanasia approach. Pet food and supplies can be bought at PETCO and PetSmart, which also board, groom and train animals.
