The Humane Society of Charlotte is working with you to create a world where there are no more homeless and unwanted animals. We are proud to be an “adoption guarantee” shelter. This means saving all cats and dogs that are rehabilitatable and manageable. Euthanasia is reserved only for those cases where an animal is suffering or poses a public safety concern.
They are committed to treating all animals that enter their shelter with love, kindness, and dignity.
With a grant from Grey Muzzle, Humane Society of Charlotte will supplement their existing medical voucher program with a new program that focuses on helping senior dogs. Currently, medical vouchers are given to adopters of heartworm positive dogs, and dogs with dental conditions as an incentive to adopt animals with pre-existing medical conditions. Animals with pre-existing medical concerns such as heartworm disease or dental disease have extended stays in shelters, longer than other animals. Being able to incentivize their adoption by deferring the cost of treatment for heartworm and dental disease in senior dogs increases their adoptability.
One of the main concerns in senior dog adoption is the additional medical cost most seniors require. This new program will provide medical vouchers for senior dogs to help place more seniors in loving homes. This means those dogs will be in a new home with a loving family instead of alone in a shelter during the last years of their lives and will allow HSC to transfer in more senior dogs from local municipal shelters.
