Spring 2018 Newsletter!

Happy Spring!

This means a few things for North Meck! For starters, April is our busiest month for events, so make sure you mark your calendars and join us for some North Meck fun!

It’s puppy season! The number of puppy litters we get increases greatly and with that the number of fosters we have available dwindle and so do our supplies. Please consider fostering or donating via our amazon wishlist or on our website during this puppy season!


Pet Spotlight

Meet Poppy!

Poppy is a sweet little 11 pound dachshund, who found herself in need of rescuing. At the age of 6 years old, Poppy and her newest litter of puppies found themselves in the welcoming arms of North Meck Animal Rescue. Sweet Poppy has likely never seen a vet, after 6 years we changed that. Sadly due to lack of vet care, Poppy is heartworm positive and will need treatment. Once Poppy is in either a foster or forever home we will treat her for her heartworms, as treating her while she’s at the shelter is too stressful for recovery. Poppy is a little gal who still has a lot of love to give, if someone gives her the chance.

If you’re interested in adding sweet Poppy to your family, please fill out our adoption application! If you’re able to help Poppy and foster her so she can be treated for heartworms, please fill out our foster application!


The Embassy

As most of you know, we are moving this year! Don’t worry we’ll be just down the road from our current location. We are working very hard to get everything together to launch our official capital campaign, so stay tuned for more information on how you can help The Embassy come to life! We hope to move into the Embassy by the end of this summer, however, we will need your help!

We will be hosting workdays open to anyone will to help clean, repair and paint our new facility over the next few Saturdays before beginning the larger projects. Please email us if you’re interested in participating or if you know of someone handy!


Meet our Foster Coordinators!

Meet Carolyn

“Hi, I’m Carolyn! I have been volunteering for NMAR for almost three years now, and I am very excited to be taking on the Adult Dog (or non-puppies!) Foster Coordinator role. My passion for animal rescue has really grown over the last few years, and I am so thrilled to be helping you all with such a life-saving and incredibly rewarding thing like fostering!
Currently, I am an accounting analyst with a local steel manufacturer. When I’m not crunching numbers, you can find me flipping to whatever channel is showing an episode of FRIENDS, attending a wine class, or taking a walk with my husband and pup (Bonnie) in one Charlotte’s many parks.”

Meet Joanne

“Hi! I’m Joanne! I’ve been fostering for NMAR for a little over 2 years and so far I’ve watched over 15 puppies find their forever homes! It honestly has brought me so much happiness and I have loved every second of it. (Minus the few pairs of shoes that I really miss). I am so excited to take on the role of Puppy Foster Coordinator and I can’t wait to start working with you all. (I mean seriously, how awesome is that job title!) “
