Training increases successful adoptions

Allison and HunterWhen Hunter arrived at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Animal Care & Control in Charlotte, NC, as a stray, his prospects for adoption seemed slim. Although the staff nursed him back to health from mange, injuries, and kennel cough, his manners made him difficult to place.

The big dog was boisterous and hyperactive, an overwhelming proposition for many looking to adopt their first dog.

However, a Train to Adopt grant from the Petfinder Foundation helped ease Hunter from the shelter to a perfect home.

After trainer Karen Owens worked with Hunter for a month, he was adopted by Allison Brown.

"Having never had a dog before at all, the training done by Karen made adopting Hunter so much easier for me," Allison said. "He is absolutely the best dog! I am so grateful to Animal Control for nursing him back to health and training him." funds Foundation's Train To Adopt grants through the Gifts That Give More program at The Animal Rescue Site. 100% of the donations made through Gifts That Give More go to the nonprofits and specific programs selected by visitors to the GreaterGood Network.
