CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A North Carolina shelter is doing something special to honor now-retired Panthers linebacker, Luke Kuechly.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Animal Control and Care is waiving adoption fees for all adult dogs under 59-pounds, as long as a financial donation is made. Kuechly wore the number 59 during his eight seasons with the Panthers.
The promotion runs through February 14.
The shelter has a goal to find homes for 107 dogs. The number represents the total of some of Kuechly's career stats.
- 2 Touchdowns
- 12.5 Sacks
- 7 Pro Bowl Appearances
- 18 Interceptions
- 67 Pass Deflections
Adopters will be entered in a drawing to win a Luke Kuechly prize pack.
