We are dedicated to finding permanent and loving families for the homeless dogs and cats of North Carolina. Uptown Day Shelter began rescuing homeless animals from across N.C. in April 2003, and we have placed countless animals in wonderful homes across the country. Uptown Day Shelter is dedicated to providing the best service possible to the animals in our care and the families who adopt from us. We take pride in adopting healthy animals and go to great lengths to pair each pet with the perfect family.
Uptown Day Shelter is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, volunteer organization that operates on individual and corporate donations and fundraising proceeds. We do not receive any funding from government agencies or national animal welfare agencies. We are very fortunate to have a caring and dedicated team of volunteers, board members, and supporters.
