CHARLOTTE — If you’re not ready to commit to adopting a furry friend, CMPD’s Animal Care and Control unit offers some options to get a best friend for a day.
“Staycation” and “Daycation” programs are the Animal Care units efforts to socialize dogs in it’s care
“It gives it a nice day out, interaction it really needs, lots of fun and it gives it a nice day out,” said Melissa Knicely with CMPD’s Animal Care and Control.
The “Daycation” is even less of a commitment, when someone can care for the dog just for a few hours.
A “Staycation” allows you to bring home a pup for a week, giving them relief from the shelter.
People interested can drop by the shelters from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. on the weekend and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays.
