The pandemic has caused too many issues to count, but one positive thing to come out of the pandemic, is the number of people adopting pets at local shelters, including Charlotte.

The Humane Society of Charlotte not only met their adoption goal, but exceeded it for 2021. Thanks to 10 last minute adoptions on New Years Eve, the organization ended 2021 with 3,431 adoptions!

According to WBTV, on average, the Humane Society of Charlotte averages around 2,900 adoptions, but that number has gone up since the pandemic started and more people are stuck at home more.

With so much negative surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic, i’m so grateful people who are now spending more and more time at home are choosing to adopt pets to keep them company. There are always so many pets in need of homes, and it’s wonderful to see that adoption rates are up in the Carolinas.

In 2022, that number could be even bigger as the Humane Society of Charlotte is getting ready to move into their new location, complete with state-of-the-art dog and cat kennels. They’ll be able to welcome more animals in the new facility which will hopefully mean more animals will continue to be adopted in 2022.
