   Family Addition Dog Rescue

of Charlotte

 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.

It is with a very heavy heart that I have to share with everyone that we

had to let Christins pass over the rainbow bridge tonight. Despite the

vets and staff's best efforts this sweet girl was just too depleted to push

on. We are deeply saddened by her loss. RIP sweet Christina.

Weasel came from a hoarding case of 41 animals out of Randolph County. He is one of 8 Family Addition Dog Rescue was able to save on Thanksgiving day 2014. Weasel came to us with a broken jaw and pelvis. Weasel's pelvis has since healed, however, he will have to take a stool softener for the rest of his life. Weasels jaw was set and fixed with acrylic. The acrylic now needs to be removed and we need help. We have paid about $2000 in medical expensise and have an outstanding balance of $800. Would you please help us?

Poor little Cody can not catch a break. Cody came into CMACC as a stray, was adopted out to a family, then returned and relinquished to Family Addition Dog Rescue. Cody is approx 10-12 yrs old. He likes to talk to you and snuggle in your lap. He loves blankets and will burrow in them to get comfortable and warm for his naps. Cody just received a grim prognosis. He is in congestive heart failure. We had hoped to find Cody a forever loving home but he will now need to be a sanctuary dog. We are not sure how long Cody has, however, we will make what life he has left the best quality life he can have. Please help us help Cody!!
