Lake Norman Humane has been the Outstanding Non-Profit for the month of August. We have been talking about the organization, volunteer opportunities, pet adoption, and now we’ll share with you some of the little known but essential care we give to our region’s animals.


Medical case highlights

Lake Norman Humane prides ourselves on partnering with and offering the best veterinary care possible to all our animals. While every animal we intake is special, well-cared for, and LOVED; we love to highlight some of our extra special medical cases. Our rescue goal is to take in animals who would otherwise be euthanized. Through our medical funds, grants, generous supporters, and veterinary partnerships we are able to save so many animals in need of medical care. Meet some of our amazing medical saves!


Bambi, Before and After


Meet Bambi

Bambi is an adorable 2-year-old boxer/pit mix. She was confiscated by a local animal control after giving birth to 16 puppies and 13 of the pups passing away. Bambi and her 3 remaining puppies were extremely emaciated, loaded with intestinal parasites and had to be rushed to a local emergency clinic.  They were hospitalized for several days and had to receive numerous blood transfusions. Sadly, one of her puppies, Brooks, wasn’t strong enough to pull through and we lost him after 4 blood transfusions. Her other puppies; Brock and Bailey have thrived and found their forever homes. Bambi, sadly, is heartworm positive and will still need to undergo heartworm treatment. She has gained 15 pounds, loves everyone she meets, and is thriving at our facility. Bambi is looking for that special home to give her the life she was previously denied.



Meet Flip Flop

Flip Flop was found as a stray in Cabarrus County. It appears he had been hit by a car and then left. Flip Flop (shown above) suffered multiple fractures to his left hind leg. Our animal control partner reached out to us to pull Flip Flop into our program and provide much needed medical care for him. He will be in a cast for 6-8 weeks, does amazing in his foster home, and will make the purrfect addition to any home!



Meet Gerald

Tree and Gerald



Gerald is an adorable 10 month old petite Beagle. He was surrendered to a local emergency hospital after being dumped on the side of the road. Gerald had undergone extreme abuse prior to surrender which left him with multiple fractures to his top and bottom jaw. Through our generous supports and an emergency grant from the Ian Somerholder Foundation; we were able to save Gerald, provide much needed medical care, and get him established in a loving foster home. Gerald has both top and bottom jaws wired, will have permanent malformation; but eats well and loves everyone he meets! He is on his road to recovery and will be looking for an amazing family to help him heal and learn to love!
