​Butter Bean-
      BB is a wonderful, playful loving senior but will require a home that is patient and understanding. BB came from a hoarding situation last Thanksgiving. He was never shown love and affection so has really attached to his foster mom. BB loves to play with his other small dog fosters and will try to get a rise out of the playful ones. He does have little dog syndrome with the big dogs and will try to show them who is on the top of the totem pole. He loves walks, car rides, and sleeping under the covers. Even with no teeth, BB loves to eat!! He is in great health for a senior but will need to be watched with food so that he doesn't become a butter ball.

 Family Addition Dog Rescue of Charlotte is a group of like minded individuals who dedicate their homes and their hearts to providing refuge to the many abandoned, abused and neglected dogs of our community. FADR typically rescues from small rural kill shelters and often houses 30-45 dogs at any given time. Each dog is fully vetted, micro chipped, altered, fed high quality nutrition and started on monthly flea & heartworm preventative. FADR has placed/re-homed over 400 dogs and a few cats.

Public awareness of our overpopulation problem is another focus of Family Addition. At all of our adoption events we ensure each citizen is educated on the plight of homeless animals in our area and the proper care of any companion animal.

  What a great way to start off the holiday season by HELPING FADR!!!!!!

FADR, in conjunction with Rescue Rowan,  recently purchased a building for rescue kennels to help Rowan County rescue pups.  

     "We are excited to say that our building will be delivered within the next week!! We are grateful for and humbled by the donations that have made this possible. We now need to equip the building with a few basic supplies."

All donations are tax deductible. There will be 3 indoor/outdoor runs, a bathing station, and an inside puppy kennel. There will be both temporary and permanent foster space available.
