Looking for cats and kittens for sale in Charlotte? Why not adopt?
The Humane Society of Charlotte is a limited admission shelter, which means we can only take in what we have room to house and that we do not euthanize for time or space. Please understand that the Humane Society of Charlotte is committed to each of our dogs or cats for life! Because of the quality of care administered to all of our homeless pets, we require a $50 surrender fee if your pet is accepted into our adoption program. This nominal fee does not come close to covering the significant cost of medically caring for, sheltering, and adopting out your pet. Please complete the surrender form and contact your veterinarian to obtain all updated medical information.
The Humane Society of Charlotte’s Community Cat Program is aimed at addressing the needs of the thousands of community cats living in our community and of the people who co-exist with them. Our main focus is to humanely reduce the population of community cats through and through the socialization of young kittens so that they may be adopted into indoor homes.
Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in Charlotte – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.You may be looking at the options, and wondering what the difference is between buying a cat or kitten you see advertised for sale in the Charlotte newspaper, for instance, and adopting a cat or kitten from a shelter. One main difference is the feeling you get from knowing your choice is actually saving a life. When you adopt a cat or kitten from a Charlotte-area shelter or rescue group, you’ll not only save the life of the cat you’ll call your new best friend, but you’ll be helping another cat by creating an open space at the shelter. And your new cat will show you vast amounts of gratitude every day!You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a Charlotte pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in Charlotte is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a Charlotte animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.Charlotte started out life as a barn cat, then was quickly adopted by a nice family. Unfortunately, they already had 2 other cats she did not care for. Shy at first, she will quickly warm up once comfortable in her surroundings. Charlotte would thrive in a calm environment with plenty of one on one attention. In return, you can count on her to be a friendly and loyal companion, who enjoys sleeping in a warm bed. Her former owner provides this description - Charlotte is a very kind loving cat. She loves to be scratched on her belly and underneath her mouth. If you have a child or children, and they have a toy kitchen she loves to sit on it if it is close to a window and she will just sit in the sun. Sometimes she will lay on your bed and lay on her back. We had a friend who had cancer and stayed at our house for the summer while we were away but the cats stayed in Houston. Charlotte got up on his chest where the cancer was and rubbed it with her paws and it made him feel better. If your sitting in your living room she might hop up and snuggle with you. She likes having another cat to play with but you don’t have to have another cat.. She loves laser lights. If you just put it in one direction and when she’s almost there you move it another way. She always slept on my bed at nighttime. Sometimes she would curl up right next to you then slowly make you half to move all the way to the other side of the bed. When you are sick she is always right by your side. I love Charlotte very much and I still do. I hope the next person she goes to will love her as much as I did.
