The Humane Society of Charlotte will offer $25 adoption fees for adult dogs (1 year or older and over 20 lbs) and $25 adoption fees for all adult cats today through Sunday. All interested adopters can request an adoption appointment at adoptcharlotte.org.

The Empty the Shelters event began in 2016 as an effort to encourage more families to adopt a pet into their homes. Since its inception, BISSELL Pet Foundation has expanded its Empty the Shelters reach to organizations across the country, partnering with a total of 414 shelters. The goal for the summer 2021 event is to find forever homes for 4,000 pets. The Humane Society of Charlotte has approximately 40 dogs and 12 cats eligible for the Empty the Shelters $25 adoption fee promotion.

“We are so excited to partner with BISSELL Pet Foundation to help empty our shelter. This event will free up much-needed space so we can continue to help our partner shelters during this critical time,” said Libby Jones, HSC VP of Operations. “The summer months result in a marked increase in shelter populations across our state. Empty the Shelter events are a critical tool to helping our partners achieve sustainability within their communities.”
