Visited the Humane Society with intention of adopting a dog, which my wife and I have done twice previously (in another state). I walked in the front door and felt like I was intruding. Finally acknowledged by a young lady sitting behind

As a volunteer for the Humane Society of Charlotte. It upsets me that people are so misconceived about where the money goes, and the well being of each and every animal that resides there.

Understaffed? Yes, maybe. It is far too

We went as a family, with a particular animal in mind that we wanted to interact with. In the pet profile it says this animal may do better with older children rather than younger children(babies/toddlers). Well we have a toddler and went in and interacted with this animal and the animal was great towards our baby! He played and followed the baby around and even chased after toys we all tossed around. We went in intending to adopt this animal just to be told it would be a 'shot in the dark' and 'slim to none' that we would be accepted to adopt, all because we have a small child. This animal showed no aggresiveness even when the volunteer tugged on his ears slightly and tail to see if the animal would react. (this is typical 2yr old behavior, we weren't trying to be mean!) There was no reaction. The dog just acted as if he didn't notice. Don't get your hopes up if you go here. Plus the application approval takes like 3 days, and as much as we really wanted that dog, we live nearly 2hrs away! Have you gotten stuck in that Charlotte traffic? Its horrific, we don't want to waste our gas to keep coming up there to get sent home empty handed. Sorry CHS, I will not be suggesting you to any friends or family, and most likely you will not recieve my business in the future. We have a huge yard, live outside the city limits and have ideal environment for this dog, but I suppose that doesn't matter just because I have a child. I would totally understand if the dog was aggressive or had a bad attitude, but this dog was a teddy bear. So what if he jumps up on the kids, thats something you have to TRAIN them NOT to do! If he jumps up then he gets corrected, its not like he is trying to hurt children he just wants to play. If people don't have the patience to teach him not to jump up on people then they don't need a dog right now anyway. Animals are like having an addtional child in the house. You have to teach them right from wrong. If your kid ran up and jumped on someone that was sitting on the couch or you going to send him/her off to be adopted by someone else? No. You're most likely going to tell them 'No, that's not acceptable' or ' No, thats not nice, we dont jump on people.'

Cons: HAHA- They don't play fair.

I am a fan of all animals. Let me tell you that from the beginning. If anyone loves animals and wants to be an advocate for them, it is me. I came to Charlotte and was eager to work with the Humane Society. After interacting with their staff, I was shocked. These people are so greedy and take so much money off the top just for the running of this organization. They are more concerned about their staff having matching shirts then if the dogs and cats have enough food to eat or enough shelter from the rain. I know that the humane society has had problems in the past, and I thought that with the new administration things would be better but it doesn't seem like that is the case. I hope that in the future things do get better there because with a city as large as Charlotte, there should be a relevant humane society. If you want to give to an organization, give to the animal control. Those animals in animal control need your help just as bad if not worse. PLEASE stop breeding dogs. Make sure that you get your next dog from a rescue society or animal control and pray that the humane society wakes up before it is too late. Also always spay or neuter your dogs. I hope that the Board sees what is going on before it really is too late.

Cons: Bad People with Agendas of Their Own...

Take a moment and really think about the "would be" pets that the humane society has to offer you. These "throw aways" are loving and need good homes and good families in most cases. Adopt a pet here and give them a great home.
