Catering To Cats & Dogs (C2CND) began its journey as a Rescue in October 2008 with ten cats and no dogs. We knew at that time, one day we would incorporate dogs and, therefore, named the business appropriately as Catering To Cats & Dogs. Our Rescue became a 501(c)3 charitable Non Profit in September 2009 with four fosters and approximately 30 felines.
Current animals in foster care with C2CND can fluctuate from 70 to 80 cats and 90 to 100 dogs, but can rise to over 100 cats and over 130 dogs during kitten/puppy season. All animals reside with fosters.
C2CND is run entirely by volunteers who dedicate their time and energy saving, transporting and caring for animals in the Lake Norman and surrounding areas from certain euthanization by pulling them from local Animal Control facilities prior to their PTS (Put-To-Sleep) date. We believe these animals are the most critical and focus our efforts on them, providing medical necessities and ensuring ALL are spayed/neutered. By requiring all animals to be altered, our rescue continues to battle the exploding pet over-population in the Greater Charlotte area, which covers multiple towns and counties.
Our Rescue is willing to work in conjunction with multiple Animal Control facilities such as: Cabarrus, Catawba, Gaston, Iredell, Lee, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Rowan & York. As many of our volunteers reside in a vast array of towns and counties, we do not limit our rescue intakes from one particular area.
C2CND believes in working in a unified front with other rescues, Animal Control facilities and the public by assisting with funding for spay/neuter, pulling & transporting animals, providing food, donations and medical supplies when our budget permits.
Catering To Cats & Dogs’ future goal is to fund a facility that will comfortably house multiple cats and dogs, have a quarantine area and an onsite Vet or Vet Tech. Obviously, this goal would require necessary funding and the assistance of all our volunteers to provide the essential care these animals deserve.
Catering to Cats & Dogs is a feline and canine nurture center concerned for the wellbeing of homeless animals in need of food, shelter, medical care and love. C2CND takes abandoned and surrendered animals (most are cats and dogs with the highest risk of euthanasia), ensures they have proper medical care, places them into foster homes, and adopts them to safe, permanent, loving homes.
In an effort to prevent pet overpopulation, C2CND ensures ALL animals adopted through our program are spayed/neutered. If not altered prior to adoption due to size or age, we make certain those animals are fixed at the appropriate time.
Furthermore, should an animal be in an unhealthy or sickly state to the point of suffering or has an incurable disease which is highly contagious to other animals, C2CND considers euthanasia the best option to end further suffering of that animal and prevent the spread of disease to other healthy animals.
Catering to Cats & Dogs believes in working in conjunction with other rescues and is willing to assist as needed and when able.
