Welcome! Thank you for visiting our site.

Shelter Guardians, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to help provide for the material and medical needs of animals in the care of our Rowan County Animal Shelter. We will work with people throughout Rowan County, with rescue organizations and with animal shelter staff to ensure that the animals are given the best chance to survive and be adopted. We will do this by obtaining donations for facility improvements and whatever else is necessary to fulfill our mission. We will work together responsibly to support our shelter and be the guardians that our shelter animals deserve.



Caring is a reflection of who we are as people.

Caring is a reflection of who we are as people. Caring for the needs of our county’s homeless animals is not only the humane thing to do, but how we treat animals in need is also a reflection of who we are, to people inside and outside our community.

Shelter Guardians, Inc. wants to be the catalyst for positive change, and the bridge between those people who want to help, and the animals who need that help. Please take the time to explore our website, and become involved – together we will make the difference.
