Outreach - Straw Delivery

  • On Saturday, December 9th, we are teaming up with the HSC Pets for Life team in delivering straw to homes with animals living outdoors. This is a good opportunity to get started if you are interested in future outreach work with APBF. We’re meeting at the Humane Society of Charlotte on Toomey Avenue at 8am and breaking up into teams to deliver straw to outside dogs. Most teams will be finished by 12pm. Wear warm, durable clothing and close-toed shoes. You may be spreading the straw in dog houses, as well. You may be asked to follow a caravan in order to deliver straw – please let us know if you prefer not to drive. Kids 15 and up may participate. Please be punctual! If you have questions ahead of time, please email Neya at

Pack Walk

  • Grab the dog/s and join us at McDowell Nature Preserve for a pack walk on December 17th at 10am! Trainer Chappell will be on site to offer tips on good leash behavior, greeting other dogs/people while on-leash, and to answer questions. Feel free to invite friends and family to bring their dogs as well. Pack walks are a $5 donation per person, (collected day of). The trail is just over a mile. Please be sure your dogs are current on their Rabies vaccination, Distemper Parvo Lepto vaccination, and their Bordetella vaccination. It is recommended that dogs receive a Canine Influenza Vaccine this year as well but is not required yet. Please have one handler per dog. **NO RETRACTABLE LEASHES PLEASE**
