CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
A zoning issue threatens to shut down a temporary home for dozens of dogs. The rescue group Hope For All Dogs operates out of a home in the Steele Creek area.
The city calls it a commercial business. The area is zoned residential.
Founder of the organization, Lisa Roney, has lived at the home with multiple dogs since 2006. She says she was shocked when she received a letter in the mail from the city telling her to cease and desist the operation of the business.
Roney says an anonymous phone call led to the letter.
Among the pooches, most are seniors. Some have special needs. A 17-year-old lab mix named Buckley and his brother Harley, were taken in after they were surrendered by an elderly owner whose spouse had died of cancer. A dog named Pumpkin came from a high kill shelter in Kentucky. She takes medication for seizures. Roney says she has a special place in her heart for these kind of dogs - ones that are often overlooked.
"Commercial states that we are for profit..trying to make money by breeding animals or boarding as well as being a grooming facility," Roney said. She says they are a private kennel with a pending non-profit status.
Roney has recent paper work from the State Department of Agriculture that lists the rescue as a private kennel. Now Roney has to reaffirm that with the city. She has until January 4 to appeal.
If she isn't able, to she fears hundreds of dollars a day in fines or being forced to move. More pressing she says is trying to find all the dogs good homes.
Adoption events for Hope For All Dogs are held several times a month. The next one will be at the Blakeney Shopping Center January 5.
