Join us for a frightful, furry, fun Halloween-Anniversary celebration!
We can’t believe it…a whole year since Zoom Room opened its doors in Charlotte. We want to thank all of our fabulous clients and partners!
Proceeds Benefit Train to Adopt!
100% of the proceeds will benefit the Train to Adopt program at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Animal Care & Control.
In the words of one Zoom Room Client, “I adopted my dog there because she was so well behaved when they brought her out to meet me!”. That’s no easy accomplishment for dogs living in a shelter. Karen Owens, and her team of Train-to-Adopt volunteers work with shelter dog to teach basic obedience, not only making them more adoptable, but keeping them mentally and emotionally healthy during their shelter stay. See below for more information about the Train to Adopt program.

What is Train to Adopt?
The Train to Adopt program is partially funded by a Petfinder.com Foundation grant. The program brings a focus to the mental, behavioral and emotional health of shelter dogs. By utilizing positive reinforcement training, play time, and environmental enrichment we intend to meet the following goals:
- Increase adoptions
- Decrease stress, stress related behaviors and lower arousal
- Collect data to generate and develop future programs
- Lower the length of stay in a kennel
- Offer guidelines for Humane Care and Quality of Life for shelter dogs
