Cabarrus County Animal Shelter Celebrates New Hours, Highlight Their Pet of the Month

Jan 09, 2018 07:42PM ● By Melanie Heisinger
At the beginning of the new year, 2018, the Cabarrus County Animal Shelter changed their hours with the goal of being more accessible. 

The ultimate hope is that updated hours will help provide more adoptions. Managed by the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office, the shelter as of Jan. 2nd offers extended hours for limited services, including public adoptions, reclaiming of lost pets and rescue partner transfers.

The new hours are Monday-Wednesday, Friday Noon - 4:30 p.m., Thursday noon-6:30 p.m., and the first Saturday of each month Noon - 3 p.m.

With these new hours, the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office hopes that people won't have to take off work to come adopt a pet and have a more relaxed time with the animals. 

They also recently launched a Facebook page @CabCoAnimalShelter and welcomed the community with a message, "Hello friends and supporters of the Cabarrus County Animal Shelter! We are very excited for the launch of our official Facebook page! Our hope is that this will help us promote animals for adoption, keep the community informed of happenings and events at the Shelter, and network with our Rescue Partners, all in effort to help as many homeless animals in Cabarrus County as we can. It takes a village, and we love our village!"

In leu of these new hours, we wanted to help them feature a pet for the month. Read on for our first 2018 Pet of the Month! 

Meet Spike!

Hello everyone, my name is "SPYKE"!

I am a 1 year old, brindle/white All American Shelter Dog at approximately 50 pounds. I am a sweet, affectionate boy that just wants to be by your side.

I am dog-social, and really just want to play! Based on staff observations, they think I may do well with kids.

I am gentle with treats and toys! I was returned to the shelter because I was having trouble with crate training. I’m looking for a home with a little patience and can provide me with the consistency I need to get the hang of this crate business. I can repay you with unconditional love and affection if you can just help me through this one little issue. I know I can do it, I just need a little help!

To meet Spike, head to the Cabarrus County Animal Shelter at 244 Betsy Carpenter Place Concord, NC or give them a call at 704-920-3288.
