Humane Society of Charlotte Announces "Adopt-A-Sweetheart"

Throughout the month of February the Humane Society of Charlotte will
feature several "sweetheart" animals available for adoption through
the third annual Adopt-A-Sweetheart Month. Our sweethearts will be
available to approved adopters at a discount off the regular adoption
price throughout February and for free on Sunday, February 14.

Specific animals will have a red heart displayed on their cage cards,
denoting that the animal can be adopted at the discounted price. "This
event allows us to feature some of our wonderful animals at the
shelter and helps encourage those looking to adopt," said Kristi
Perman, Assistant Executive Director.

The regular fee for each featured animal will be reduced by $50, with
the exception of Valentine's Day when the entire fee will be waved.
The discount adoption fee includes all vaccinations, spay/neuter
surgery, 30 days of free pet insurance and a microchip.

"Valentine's Day is February's biggest holiday and we hope many people
looking to adopt will give one of our sweethearts a new forever home,"
Perman said.

Please visit our Web site,, or come
to our shelter to see animals available for adoption.
