Tis’ the time of year to see adorable animals enjoying the holiday season. I am obsessed with these adorable critters.

Charlotte has many shelters with animals that need homes. CMPD Animal Care and Control were so kind enough to share some adorable animals enjoying their holiday best. Look how cute these pups and cats are with Santa! My heart pretty much melted when I saw the kittens under the tree.

There is a need to help our furry friends find loving homes in Charlotte and surrounding areas. Adopt, don’t shop, by making CMPD Animal Care & Control your option for adoption. Visit animals.cmpd.org to view adoptable animals ahead of time. You can learn more about CMPD Animal Care & Control here.
