It's Adopt A Shelter Dog Month at the Humane Society of Charlotte during October... and across the nation, as a matter of fact. If you've been thinking about "adding" to your family, why not consider adopting a shelter dog?

 

As the Humane Society of Charlotte puts it...   "come meet our adorable canines and you may just have a new walking buddy, couch potato partner or forever friend." Here's your link to meet some of the Humane Society of Charlotte's dogs available for adoption.

 

 

Adopt A Shelter Dog At The Humane Society Of Charlotte

 

Did you know that up to 8 million pets end up in shelters each year and that half of these will never be adopted? That may explain why over 50% of dogs in shelters end up euthanized. And if you're looking for a specific breed, it's worth noting that some 25% of the animals in shelters are actually pure breds. $1 billion annually is spent picking up, sheltering, and euthanizing pets in this country! Homeless pets outnumber homeless people by 5 to 1. Can you think of any reason not to adopt if you are looking for your fur-ever companion?

 

National Dog Adoption Month In October

 

The Humane Society of Charlotte has two adoption locations in town:

  • HSC Main Shelter at 2700 Toomey Avenue | Charlotte, NC 28203. The shelter is open Mondays through Sundays from 11:00 am till 5:00 pm. 704-377-0534. 

  • HSC Petco Adoption Center in the Northcross Shopping Center | 10017 Biddick Lane | Huntersville, NC 28078. Petco is open from 11:00 am till 7:00 pm 7:00 pm daily.  704-895-7643

 

Please take some time to view this terrific video about all the great things the Humane Society of Charlotte does in our community. The staff and volunteers here are truly local heroes.

 

 

 

 

MORE PLACES TO ADOPT  A SHELTER DOG IN CHARLOTTE THIS OCTOBER:

 

  • Greater Charlotte SPCA: click on this link to learn more about adopting a dog from the Greater Charlotte SPCA. 
     
  • Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD): click on this link to see adoptable dogs in Charlotte at the CMPD.

  • Humane Society of York County just over the border in Fort Mill, South Carolina: my personal favorite shelter and from where I've adopted our dogs and cat since we moved to Charlotte 18 years ago. This is where I contribute food and supplies. They run the PAWSibilities Thrift Shop in Fort Mill and that's where I contribute clothing, books, household items, etc. So, if you can't see your way clear to adopting a shelter dog, why not adopt a local shelter and help out with your time, money, supplies? I promise, if you do, you'll feel really good about it!

 

The Shelter Pet Project Organization provides lots of tips and tricks and great information about how to go about adopting a shelter dog, regardless of where you live.

 

This is but a very short list of places to adopt a shelter dog during National Dog Adoption Month. Charlotte metro area also has organizations that focus on specific breeds, such as greyhounds, great danes, etc. If you really want a dog, there's just no way you won't find one to love and provide a fur-ever home to in Charlotte.

Barbara Todaro ~ you make such a great point, Barbara, One thing I've noticed is that the shelters seem to do much more checking of those who want to adopt a dog or cat than they used to. And that's a good thing as far as I'm concerned.

Nina,

We are always happy to donate to no kill shelters, which are the only ones we have in our area.  We both stay away from visiting these, as we would end up with lots of pets.  I am still trying to talk Ron into adopting a dog, so that Quincy could have a pal, as he really likes dogs...A

Being seeing a lot the last week on pet adoption and we attended Paws in the Park in Jupiter Florida this weekend. They had free vet services also for your adoptions even with eye specialists. A lot of happy young ones being adopted.

Hi Nina Hollander, I've always adopted adult dogs, really want a puppy now since Buster(my cat) has no interest in playing with Buddy. Buddy came from a home that couldn't keep him and he was a puppy. Hope many will go to shelters this month and in the coming months to adopt.

We will be adopting a cat in October . . . .  Adopting at pet from a shelter is a great community service.

Good luck and success.

Our Maggie was a shelter dog, Nina Hollander ... and there just wasn't a better dog in the world.  The need to adopt these animals is so great.  I'm sure your post ... and the info contained within it ... will move many to adopt, love, and add to their families.  You do God's work ...

Gene Mundt, IL/WI Mortgage Originator - FHA/VA/Conv/Jumbo/Portfolio/Refi ~ thanks, Gene. Most of the cats and dogs I've had were shelter/rescue pets... and they really are the best. And it seems that we never run out of pets to adopt either.
