  • 1. Awesome Volunteers

    by: katgreg

    This shelter is fabulous! They know the animals and truly care about their well being. I cannot say enough about how caring, considerate and communicative the volunteers are. Their passion to find good homes for these animals is second to none. When one our dogs passed away I received so many kind emails from the volunteers. Their support was astounding and will never be forgotten.

    Pros

    Great staff who really care about the dogs

    Cons

    Hours

  • 2. happy customer

    by: dududucky06

    This is a wonderful shelter. The woman were very patient and helpful. They showed me multiple dogs and gave me plenty of time to play and bond with the dogs. I was not pressured into adopting a dog that would not suit me. The were the sweetest people and really care about the animals at the shelter. The shelter was hard to find at first but once I got there I had a wonderful experience. I ended up getting a puppy who needed another round of shots in 3 days...instead of sending me somewhere else where I would have to pay for them or making me wait to take her home, the allowed me to bring her back for her shots. I am a very happy customer. A year later, I am estatic with my dog and if I ever get another dog again I will return.

    Pros

    wonderful staff, stayed open so I could go to an atm and get money for my adoption, clean, let me bring back my baby to get her second round of shots for free

    Cons

    credit card machine was out of order, hard to find

  • 3. HSCGCC

    by: StefW

    Having adopted from and done volunteer work for the Humane Society of Concord and Greater Cabarrus County in the past - a no-kill facility - I can honestly and emphatically say that the volunteer staff do what they do out of a true love for animals. \r\n\r\nIt can be tiring physically as it's often done after working another full time job and emotionally exhausting because even though these folks can see they're making a difference, there is still a lot of help and education to be given.\r\n\r\nThe sheer number of animals that are still put into live or die situations through no fault of their own takes a toll and breaks hearts on a daily basis, but these people persevere and have my respect and support for all that they do.\r\n\r\nA low cost spay/neuter clinic has been opened, small dogs are fostered by generous volunteers and there is a cage-free home for the cats. This requires so much effort and I endeavor to support them as much as I can.

    Pros

    Staff that cares and works hard for animals

    Cons

    Volume of animals that come in

  • 4. Dedicated Volunteers

    by: cathycr

    Very dedicated volunteers. They truly care about the animals and do a terrific job of taking care them. They could really use a larger facility.

    Pros

    Excellent volunteers

    Cons

    Need a larger shelter

  • 5. Dedicated Volunteers

    by: nancy4289

    I first became acquianted with the Cabarrus Humane Society when I found a stray dog about 2 years ago. I brought him home and would have kept him at my house until I found him a home except that I have a dog who doesn't care for other dogs and two very small children. I was panicked about calling Animal Control because I was afraid he would be put down and that was the last thing I wanted. I spoke to a volunteer at the Concord Humane Society and offered to pay for the dog's care if they would take him from Animal Control. They were very helpful and took the dog and found him a home very quickly. I have hoped to volunteer at the shelter, but am hampered at the moment by family issues. I hope to volunteer in the future!!!

    Pros

    Helpful, Friendly Staff

    Cons

    They need to win the makeover so they have more space!

  • 6. Incredible Volunteers

    by: CurleeQ

    My husband and I are biased, due to the fact that we've donated to this organization for many years, and we adopted a min-pin from them. They are the most giving souls we know when it comes to animals. The kennels are always clean, they make sure that the people who are adopting the animals are a good fit, they want as many successful adoptions as possible!!

    Pros

    They love animals!

    Cons

    They need more space.

  • 7. This Shelter is the best

    by: maryjaco1

    I got my " Joey" a golden retriever from these wonderful volunteers last fall. Truly, this shelter needs a makeover. The space allocated to the humane societity is very limited to certain # of cages. I am so happy with the adoption arrangements they have.The whole process was very hassle free. Just wanted to add a review as a vote of support.\r\n

    Pros

    Very Caring

    Cons

    none-just need more spaces for adoption

  • 8. Excellant Organization

    by: migsyc

    I have never met a more dedicated group of people. They truly donate much of their time and energy for the good of the animals. I would recommend this shelter to anyone looking for an animal.

  • 11. Thankful

    by: cgladieu1

    I'm very thankful for the HUMANE SOCIETY OF CONCORD & GREATER CABARRUS COUNTY! I have visited the site a few times in search of a dog to invite into our family and home. I was thankful to see a caring and helpful staff that was sincerely concerned for the animals they cared for there. Cabarrus County is lucky to have such a great staff caring for the lost and homeless...

  • 12. lots of love at this facilitiy

    by: cthompson

    The staff at this shelter are true animal lovers and it shows! They pay close attention not only to the animals but to those contemplating adoption. They truly want to ensure that the animals end up in a forever home and that all who cross the threshold have a good experience. I love reading all the happy adoption stories in the newsletter.

    Pros

    caring, dedicated team of volunteers

    Cons

    need more room to save more animals!

  • 13. Genuine care for the animals

    by: Carter2005

    The love that was shown for the cats and dogs when we visited was outstanding. We could tell by the way the cats acted that the staff had earned their trust in a short time. They demonstrated uncomparable love and affection for all the animals.

    Pros

    staff truly care & are kind

    Cons

    not enough room for all the animals in need

  • 14. Good Luck!

  • 15. princeton's meow

    by: rshotts

    I have not had the opportunity to visit Princeton's Meow but my wife has and she is amazed at what these folks have done at this place. She has told me how spotless the place is and roomy for the cats to play and no cages!!!! We have 5 cats and they love our cat tree. I understand that at Princeton's cat trees rule lol. Thumbs up to this hard working group of people, they need all the volunteer help they can get and all the donations available to be given. Everyone should check out Princeton's.

    Pros

    no cages

    Cons

    none

  • 16. For the Honor

    by: ztT4MP22223505

    You've provided a service to this community to benefit and glorify life. My thanks for honoring it instead of destroying it.

    Pros

    Caring, selfless volunteers

    Cons

    Understaffed

  • 17. An exceptional organization!

    by: buster

    Ok, I may be biased. I personally know many of the people who dedicate their time and efforts to make this organization effective in providing many animals a new lease on life. I have also been blessed by one of their rescued animals which I adopted several years ago. Through hundreds of hours of volunteering to clean and maintain a shelter, to raising money for projects such as the Spay/Neuter Clinic, Princeton's Meow, to investigating neglect and abuse (and on and on), the people of the Humane Society of Concord & Greater Cabarrus County have managed to save many unwanted animals from certain death. Their devotion to the animal world is little known to the general public and their efforts are not fully appreciated. I would like to thank each and every one involved with this group for your efforts.

    Pros

    Dedicated volunteers behind the scenes

    Cons

    Limited space for holding dogs

  • 18. great job with limited resources

    by: mpbaucom

    This all volunteer organization does a great job with its limited resources. If more space was available I am sure more animals could be adopted.

    Pros

    wide variety of animals

    Cons

    needs more space

  • 19. Humane Society Rocks!

    by: lynntak

    This society is run by animal-loving, caring people. I have not rescued an animal from this group but know of many people that have. They have all had wonderful experiences and have found terrific additions to their families. The society also runs a program that allows selected dogs to be trained by chosen inmates in a wonderful community outreach program. It is very hard to tell who benefits more.... the special dogs or the inmates whose lives are brightened by the experience. Kudos to the Humane Society of Concord and Greater Cabarrus County!

    Pros

    Great service run by caring people

    Cons

    None I can think of!!

  • 20. chs

    by: lewisclark

    This organization is full of animal loving, hard-working individuals who truly love what they do. Finding the animals their perfect home is the top priority. They do need their own larger facility so they can save more animals from animal control

    Pros

    nice, hardworking volunteers

    Cons

  • 23. Great shelter!

    by: mec83185

    The volunteers at this shelter were SUPERB. I can't say enough about how wonderful they were with both the people and the animals. We visited another shelter prior to this one and the staff there seemed very patronizing so we were a little unsure about approaching another shelter. However, when we got there, everyone was so friendly and helpful and most importantly really seemed to love and care about the animals there. As I was sitting in the lobby waiting on my mom to finish paperwork, volunteers (and maybe some staff, I'm not sure) passed through and each and every one stopped to talk to me and say hello to the dog we were adopting. They even offered training tips and well-wishes! We were extremely happy with them and love our new dog! \nMy only complaint (which is more of a suggestion) is that the interaction area made it a little more difficult to get to know the dog than if we could have let her run around off-leash a bit. I'm sure this is largely to do with funding and is not a reflection of the shelter as a whole.

    Pros

    volunteers are amazing!

    Cons

    could have better interaction areas

  • 24. Good luck!

    by: shei34

    You are the best! The constant care and love that you give to the animals in your shelter is a testament to the type of community you live in. Your community is behind you, good luck! Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    understanding, caring staff

    Cons

    needs a good makeover.

  • 25. An Excellent Organization

    by: athikerunc

    We adopted our cat at HSOC when he was a kitten. The atmosphere was unhurried, comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. We've been enjoying our cat for two years.

    none

  • 26. Very Impressed!

    by: RottieMomNC

    I've been so impressed with the organization that I decided to become a volunteer for them. They care about the animals they're trying to place, and try to assist with adoptions that are positive for both pet and human alike. They also understand the down side, which is that you can't save every animal, as much as you'd like to. One of their missions is to educate the public, which alot of shelters don't do.

    Pros

    Terrific and caring staff

    Cons

    None

  • 27. My Friend Buddy

    by: ztT4MP98998995

    The facility was very clean,and well organized. The lady took us to see the cats,it was wonderful and I wanted to take all of them home. My wife being a realist said we could only have one, his name is Buddy and he has found a home he is very playful.He is a tabby and weighs about 12 pounds. the staff made the adoption easy, and quick, and i never thought I would hear from the Humane Society again, but I have been contacted twice making sure Buddy was for me. Should I ever want another pet, Cabarrus County is where I will look.

    Pros

    Very Professional Staff

    Cons

    Short Staffed

  • 28. Concord Animal Shelter

    by: REEasu

    We got both of our cats at the Concord Humane Society. When we adopted our first one they were very particular about how we planned to care for the cat and we had to say that we would always keep the cat indoors. They even called twice to check in on the cat once we adopted him. We definitely understood why they were so particular and knew that it was only because they truly care about their animals and animal welfare.

    Pros

    Lots of great animals and a very caring staff

    Cons

    The staff is a little to particular when interviewing potential adopters.

  • 29. I Know This Is A Wonderful And Caring Shelter w/Great Volunteers

    by: lmuzekari

    My parents have gotten a lot of their animals from this Humane Society. Though they have a small space, all the volunteers have big hearts. They really take care of all the animals they possibly can.\r\n\r\nThey push spay and neuter and were strategic in opening a spay and neuter place in the community which is wonderful. If more people would use it, the animal over population would decline.\r\n\r\nI also love how they have a no cage house devoted to kitties looking for homes. It's so wonderful to think that these cats can live each day playing, sleeping and being socialized with no cages. \r\n\r\nSimply put, this shelter and it's no cage kitty place, Princeton's Meow have a lot of heart working through their volunteers.\r\n\r\nThey are excellent at pairing an animal with a family or adult and are very knowledgeable about animals and what they need in life.

    Pros

    This shelter is full of volunteers that truly care for animals

    by: dshotts

Strictly volunteer and raising every penny one at a time for the welfare of animals.\r\n\r\nI have been able to put together a few fundraisers from them myself and am working on a new one now \r\ncalled the FUR BALL BOWL.\r\n\r\nI am calling out to anyone who reads this to come to Frye's Lanes on March 11, 2008 on Poplar Tent Rd in\r\nConcord to bowl a few games for the animals.\r\n\r\n$5.00 per game, Humane society will get $3.00 of the $5.00 and it will be fun for all.\r\n\r\nBring Family and friends and support this group. Do what you can when you can!!!\r\n\r\nFor Details 704-784-1066

  • 32. The best group ever

    by: sMelanie

    This group has done so much with volunteer-only help. They adopt out hundreds of animals a year, care for sick animals until they're well and socialize so many others, they have organized a low-cost spay/neuter clinic, have established a prison program where dogs are obedience trained by the inmates, and have opened a cage-free cat adoption center. This is an amazing group of people that do whatever it takes for their animals. I have nothing but respect for all that they have accomplished and am proud to be a part of this organization. Every animal that goes through the organization is loved and cared for as if it were a personal pet to all the volunteers.

    Pros

    Great group

    Cons

    None

  • 33. A great place to volunteer

  • 34. Excellent Shelter and Volunteers For The Animals

    by: TopRock

    This shelter is run by volunteers who are just unbelievably dedicated to all animals. It's amazing what they accomplish!\r\n\r\nThey also have a house by the name of Princeton's Meow which is a house that houses kittens and cats that are adoptable. No cages, comfy places for the cats to lounge around, cat climbers and it's just a wonderful environment for these abandoned cats.\r\n\r\nThere may be bigger Humane Society shelters but none are better. The dedication is astounding and heart warming.\r\n\r\nThey are educated and are very careful to place animals with the right family. Kudos to these folks!

    Pros

    This Shelter Is Top Notch and Run With Volunteers That Are Dedicated, Educated and Loving

    Cons

    We Need A Bigger Facility

  • 35. The most loveable cats!

  • 36. best place to find your forever pet

    by: shoesineboy

    I just love this place. I have two animals both of who I rescued. Webster, my latest, I have had not for about 2 years. It is hard to believe that it has been that long. The staff at the shelter is AWESOME. After a year I took Webster in for a check up and fould out he had heartworms. He was on a strict heartworm regimen from the time I picked up up from the shelter and he still is. I was worried and I called the staff at the shelter and they were as concerned as I was. They helped me get in touch with the right folks to help out with the treatment. I am glad to say Webster didn't have to go through the treatment. We tested him every 3 months for a year after changing his regimen. I can't say enough about the staff at the Humane Society of Concord & Greater Cabarrus Counth.

    Pros

    operated by all volunteers

    Cons

    only open a limited number of hours

  • 37. Sounds Likes A Good Place For Animals In Need

    by: Switch

    It's great to have a nice shelter for animals who need a safe place to stay where they will be properly cared for untill they can find a permanent home. We need such a place where I live, the animals in my community do not get a fair chance. I feel so bad for them and wish I could do more.

    Pros

    Seems like a nice place

    Cons

    No Complaints

  • 38. it couldn't be better

    by: Megan77

    In Feb. 2005, my husband and I adopted our adorable Lucy from them. Not only did they give us a mini lesson on being new puppy parents, but volunteers gave us their personal phone numbers and e-mails, and actually responded when we had questions. They also seemed genuinely sorry to see our little dog go, even though she'd only been with them for three days. I'm so glad they rescued her so we could find her - they deserve as much love and support as we can all give them, since they give so much to our pets future and past!

    Pros

    caring, helpful, concerned staff, wonderful pets

    Cons

    they need more money!

  • 39. Went for Christmas visit

    by: bnnyfoofoo

    Having lost a beloved dog this past Fall, I went on a whim to see if I could bring home a new little friend for Christmas. I did not find my special pal that day, probably because there were only a very few adoptees and they were all larger dogs. I needed a smaller one, as that is what I have always had, and my pets usually spend a lot of time on my lap!\r\n\r\nI was so pleased to be greeted by the nicest man, a volunteer, who eagerly took me into the adoption area in hopes he could find a forever home for one of his charges. When I stopped in at the desk on my way out to give my modest donation, I was warmly thanked and encouraged to come again soon.\r\n\r\nThere is a happy ending to this tale.. I found my new little girl a few days later, not from this shelter, but through the network of rescue shelters they linked me to. My lap is no longer empty, and once she is settled, I just may look for a new brother or sister for her to play with. This shelter will be first on my list!\r\n

    Pros

    Happy friendly staff, thankfully not many dogs waiting to be adopted

    Cons

    didn't find my pet that day

  • 40. GREAT place to find a pet!

    by: joanb99

    I have never met a more friendly, helpful bunch of people as the volunteers at the Humane Society of Concord. The veterinary services they provided are invaluable. If you want a pet, this is the place to go.\r\n\r\nI had to put my beloved pet to sleep and wanted a new dog....the staff were sorry to hear of my recent loss and more then helpful in finding me a great dog.\r\n\r\nWhat they really need is more space for all the animals, a modern easy to clean facility as well as more area for walking the dogs. We live in an area where the population is growing rapidly, that means there will be more and more pets that need homes.\r\n\r\nI would HIGHLY recommend the Humane Society of Concord to anyone looking for a new pet. \r\n\r\nI think it's a tragedy that there are so many animals ready for adoption all over America, one look into any of these animal's eyes tells the story....\r\n\r\n

    Pros

    Friendly staff, well kept animals

    Cons

  • 41. Princeton's is great

    by: ladyspeech

    I love Princeton's Meow. It is a wonderful place ran by true cat lovers. The cats are well taken care of and receive lots of love from the volunteers. The cat are not caged, but allowed to live and play in rooms with other cats. If you visit you will want to bring one home with you - or two or three.

    Pros

    Cage free cats, wonderful loving care

    Cons

    filling up fast

  • 42. Excellent Humane Society To Find Your Forever Pets

    by: bblakley07

    My husband and I have used The Humane Society to adopt several of our wonderful pets. The volunteers here work very hard for the animals and to pair animals together with prospective owners. They are knowledgeable and try to pick as many animals as they can hold for adoption. They have a wonderful foster care program and The Prison Dog program for dogs who need training is exceptional.\r\n\r\nAlso, The Humane Society has opened Princeton's Meow which provides an actual home for kitties until they are adopted. It provides comfy places for them to sleep, climbing toys and really helps to socialize them to being with other cats. Prospective adopters can spend time with the cats to find their special pets. The cats are warm and happy and it's good to see when visiting.\r\n\r\nOur community is very lucky to have such caring volunteers working for the animals.\r\n\r\nKudos to all volunteers!\r\n\r\nbblakley

    Pros

    Volunteers give 100% to help the animals

    Cons

    We need more space at the shelter to house animals...

  • 43. The best

    by: berlin

    There's never enough any of us can say to thank the volunteers for the heart, soul and dedication that they contribute to help the animals in Cabarrus County. Every individual gives as much as they can to keep the shelter and Princeton's Meow clean and to comfort and care for the animals until a home can be found for each.\r\n\r\nBut we'll say it again - Thank YOU!

  • 56. a volunteers wish

    by: neelyjud

    To have a facility that could take more animals in than we are able to take in now and to have bigger and better kennels. That is my wish. I am a volunteer at the Humane Society in Concord and it is such a privilege to be involved with such a wonderful organization. I have met so many caring people and so many beautiful animals have touched my heart.

    Pros

    compassion

    Cons

    none

    Cons

    no cons

  • 58. Nice Place

    by: ricknbev

    This is a great shelter. The people who volunteer there give so much of their time-there are no paid employees. They are always loving to the animals and trying to find them good homes. If they had more space less dogs would be killed by the pound.

    Pros

    workers always happy love the animals

    Cons

    not much space for dogs

  • 59. Dedicated volunteers run this place

    by: bbjohnson51

    The people who run this place are dedicated and take good care of the animals. This site needs more space so it can take in more animals. It's wonderful to see animals find their forever home, and they do a good job screening the adoptors.

    Pros

    No kill facility, and true animal lovers

    Cons

    not enough space

  • 60. HSOC

    by: ljasonb

    Excellent group. Well organized and really changing the lives of pets and citizens in Cabarrus County.

    Pros

    Volunteers!!!

    Cons

    Like most shelters, they need more community support.

  • 61. The Animals are Their #1 Priority

    by: furls

    The volunteers are always looking for ways to help the animals as well as improve the organization so that more animals can be helped. They are very caring towards the animals that they try to find homes for. Rather than just shipping the animals out, they prefer to find the best homes possible for those that they care for.

    Pros

    Volunteers and Princeton's Meow facility

    Cons

    If I had to give one, the lack of space available for the dogs.

  • 62. God sent Angels

    by: forrest

    I am a volunteer at this shelter and can tell you that this is the greatest volunteer staff at any shelter anywhere. There aren't words to describe the compassion that we all have for every animal that comes to our shelter. Each one being very special to everyone. This shelter goes above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to the care of our animals.

    Pros

    no kill shelter

    Cons

    none!

  • 63. A forward-moving organization

    by: kira55

    The volunteers MAKE this group - they are going to pitch in whenever and wherever needed to help the animals of Cabarrus County especially - though most of them do their own individual rescue work on a daily basis - reporting abuse, spreading the word about the low-cost spay/neuter clinic, taking in strays and abandoned animals and opening their homes to foster...if not adopt.\r\n\r\nThey're the best group anywhere

    Pros

    Great volunteers, saves many animals

    Cons

    None

  • 64. Great organization

    by: LouAnne

    This organization is wonderful. The shelter and Princeton's Meow are so clean. The animals are well taken care of. Cabarrus County is fortunate to have such a compassionate organization that truly cares for animals. This organization was instrumental in getting a low cost spay/neuter clinic in the county as well. The organization is making a difference one animal at a time!

    Pros

    Princeton's Meow - no cages!

    Cons

    None - except more money is always needed

  • 65. Volunteers of Concord humane society

    by: luvingthesun

    The people who regularly volunteer give so much of their time and hearts to the animals there. I volunteer when the time allows me BUT THEM? They are there day in and day out. I really take off my hats to them. They donate so much time and effort. They dont get paid for this. They do this because their hearts lead them to.

    Pros

    Lots of people who give their time day in and day out for the greater good of the animals. They not only have full time jobs and families they also give to the shelter full time to make sure the animals have someone to care for them.

    Cons

    Absolutly none

  • 66. Okay, so I'm biased

    by: PRINCETON

    As a volunteer of this Humane Society, my opinion may be biased, but I've also visited other "shelters" and know other organizations who don't even HAVE a facility to save animals.\r\n\r\nPrinceton's Meow is the cage-free cat adoption facility at 29 Brookwood NE in Concord, NC 28025. Dogs and puppies and some additional cats and kittens are housed in runs and cages provided at the Cabarrus Animal Control facility off Hwy 49, just south of Hwy 601. \r\n\r\nThe volunteers work hard to keep the animals clean and happy. The Humane Society was able to establish a low-cost spay/neuter facility and all animals are health-checked, vaccinated and spayed or neutered as part of the adoption process.\r\n\r\nThere also is a New Leash on Life "cell dog" adoption program - 3 dogs spend 8 weeks with dog-trainer inmates where they are groomed to be obedient companion animals.\r\n\r\nAll in all, for a small town in North Carolina, this organization has been pro-active in bringing many new and innovative ideas to the community in relationship to animal welfare

    Pros

    No-Kill shelter and cage-free cat adoption site

    Cons

    Never enough money or volunteers
