Dog Days of Charlotte focuses primarily on finding and coordinating foster homes for dogs rescued from high kill shelters, so most of the dogs we help save belong to specific no-kill rescue groups in/or around the Greater Charlotte, NC area. Others we help eventually transport up north to no-kill rescue groups to be adopted out there. All rescue groups are different and have their own adoption requirements and procedures, most requiring an extensive adoption application, vet check, home visit and adoption fee. Unless the dog is actually listed with our organization, we have no say in whether a rescue group can or will adopt to you. Dog Days of Charlotte simply works on behalf of these rescue groups as a support network to find and coordinate foster homes, whereas the rescue group that has sponsored the dog ultimately has the right to approve decline any adoption (or foster home).

4) Once you have the dog: We will link you up with the dog’s rescue group who is sponsoring him. In most foster cases, the dog will need to be spayed/neutered while in your foster care. Dog Days of Charlotte (aka Foster Charlotte) and the rescue group will help coordinate the vet appoint based on your schedule and availability. It is extremely helpful to us if you are able to arrange to drop of and pick up for these appointments. If you are unable, we can find volunteers to help. You will kept up to date on transport details (if the dog is going to an out of state rescue) and adoption events being help (if the dog you have belongs to a local rescue). Each situation is different and may require things that other foster placements may not.
