PawPrints Magazine is dedicated to saving the lives of homeless animals by promoting pet adoptions. We provide an up-to-date pictorial directory of shelters, humane societies and rescue organizations in the Cape Fear area. Deadline for submissions is on or before the 15th of each month. PawPrints Magazine is published on a monthly basis by Zappareta Publications, Inc. All non-profit organizations and individuals who are not in the business of selling animals are welcome to participate in the magazine. PawPrints Magazine cannot guarantee the health or temperament of any animal offered for adoption through this publication. We try to keep information as current and accurate as possible; however, we cannot guarantee the availability of a specific animal. Prospective pet parents must contact the shelter directly to make certain a particular pet is still available or to inquire about the adoption process.
