Do you want to add a new member to your family? Look no further than these Charlotte animal shelters for a pet available for adoption. Pet adoption agencies in Charlotte and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.
About 6.5 million companion animals are surrendered or taken in each year by adoption agencies nationwide, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. However, only around half of all shelter animals are adopted each year, according to ASPCA data. If you’re on a search for a lovable new companion, consider beginning at a local facility like Greater Charlotte Spca, where Cavatelli the dog is waiting patiently. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in permanent homes.
With help from our friends at Petfinder, Patch has compiled this week’s list of animals available for adoption near you. Whether you’re looking for cuddles or companionship, one of these animals could be the perfect fit for your family.
