Second Chance Medical Fund

We receive an average of 60 animals a day through our doors.  Oftentimes, adoptable animals that are sick or injured must be humanely euthanized due to a lack of funds to provide the medical care for them.  This fund is designed to provide additional money specifically for the care of these animals.  A tax-deductible donation earmarked for the Medical Fund will make it possible for the veterinary staff to provide:

  • Treatment for Heartworm disease
  • Further testing or examinations not possible at the shelter
  • Equipment and supplies to enable more treatments to be done at the shelter
  • Additional training of vet staff on new procedures
If you would like to support this effort to save lives, please make sure that your check is made out to the Charlotte/Mecklenburg Animal Care & Control and earmarked for the medical fund.
