We are delighted that you are interested in one of the animals in our care at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Animal Services. Specific animals get adopted quickly:
We are the municipal shelter for the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. This means that we cannot hold animals for interested parties. It also means that many of our adoptable pets are strays and we don’t have any background or personality notes about most of them. Our advice is to come to our adoption center and meet the pet you are interested in asap. This is the best way to know if a pet is the right fit for you and/or your family.If you are looking for specific information about this particular pet and/or looking for the adoption fees, please visit our website at http://animals.cmpd.org.
Our Adoption Center is located at 8315 Byrum Drive Charlotte, NC 28217.
