With sweet eyes that draw you in, and a temperament that has people falling in love left and right, how is it that our precious Elsie is still waiting for her forever home? We know her perfect home is out there! Someone she can cuddle up with every night and give her all the belly rubs! We may call a lot of animals sweet, but if you look up the definition of “sweet” in the dictionary, we’re pretty sure Elsie’s picture will be the first thing you see. Elsie is constantly seen cuddled up with staff and volunteers every time we see her. Whether it be in the kennel or out in the yard, she loves nothing more than to be our own HSCC emotional support dog and cuddle up to everyone – even complete strangers! The longer Elsie has been with us, the more selective she’s been with her dog friends. She sometimes likes other dogs, but other times isn’t fond of them. It just depends on their temperament! We think she can be adopted with a friend, as long as you can commit to slow introductions. Otherwise, Elsie would love to be your only dog. She seems to be unfazed by cats. Elsie would do fantastic with kids, but honestly due to her medium energy, she’d be a great companion with any age – young or old! When you meet her in person, we know that you’ll love her just as much as we do! Submit your application today at catawbahumane.org. If Elsie can find her furever family by close of business on Saturday her adoption fee will be waived, thanks to our sponsor The Natural Dog (Hickory).

Staff favorite, Greyson, is searching for his forever home – could that be you? Greyson gets along with everyone, but appreciates people who give him head rubs the most. He’s a chill, calm, and collected cat that would fit in well with any home. He’s lived with other cats before, and gets along with most once he acclimates. Greyson is a great companion, and will even talk back sometimes, especially when he’s telling you he wants something! He’s a quirky, affectionate cat that is low maintenance and would love nothing more than a bed to lay on or a window to perch in. A way to win this guy’s heart is through canned food or squeeze snacks. After his dental/extractions, he has gotten spoiled on canned food and requests that his new home provide him with a treat every once in a while! Even though he came in needing a few teeth pulled, Greyson has improved so much after he was comfortable again and is finally ready for his forever home to find him. Submit your application today at catawbahumane.org. If Greyson can find his furever family by close of business on Saturday his adoption fee will be waived, thanks to our sponsor The Natural Dog (Hickory).
