the lifelines for the Animal Adoption League. Through their efforts,
we are able to educate the community and raise public awareness
of our organization and the services we offer. There are many ways
in which you can help! We are always in need of foster homes, people
to help with fundraisers, extra hands to hold dogs at PETsMART,
help with answering the League Hotline, computer proficient folks
to help maintain our website and anyone with a few extra hours who
wouldn't mind transporting animals to vet appointments.

• NASCAR auction – By far, our largest and most profitable
fundraiser, we really depend on this event. Typically held in north
Charlotte or Concord in May, we auction off donated NASCAR-related
• LoveLights – Usually held in December at Freedom Park in
south Charlotte. For small donations, luminaries are placed around
the lake in honor or memory of beloved pets.
• Festival in the Park – This popular annual event is held
at Freedom Park in south Charlotte. We use our booth to provide
information about our organization and available animals (via photos).
We also take this opportunity to educate the public about the importance
This year, Festival in the Park is being held Sept. 19-Sept. 22.
Our group always needs good foster parents. We regularly receive
“pleas for help” and unfortunately, we aren’t always able to help
simply because there are never enough homes, even temporary homes.
Our foster parents help by providing a safe, secure, loving, temporary
home for an animal. Approved vet care and food are provided for
the foster animal. Fostering an animal is one of the most demanding
responsibilities within our group. It is also the most hands-on
and probably the most rewarding. Foster animals are carefully placed
into foster homes most ideally suited to their temperaments/needs.

At least twice a year, Animal Adoption League “joint ventures” with
Charlotte Animal Control and/or other rescue groups to provide low-cost
rabies shots to dogs and cats. We have also sponsored discount spay/neuter
programs in conjunction with these clinics. Our primary goal is
to make it easy for the general population to vaccinate their pets
and/or have their pet altered. We also use this opportunity to educate
the public about the importance of spaying/neutering their pet.
We can always use volunteers to help setting up for the clinics,
registering participants, assisting veterinarians, directing people
to various areas, etc.
Assist in transporting foster animals to vet appointments.
Some of our foster pets are “shown off” at PETsMART in Pineville.
The foster parent typically takes the foster animals in their care
to PETsMART on Saturday mornings. Potential adopters are able to
meet the available pets and fill out an application to adopt if
interested. Please note that we do not offer same-day adoptions.
Applicants are carefully screened to ensure that each pet is placed
in an appropriate home. Even if a volunteer is not a foster parent,
our foster parents can always use help at PETsMART.
