The Humane Society of Charlotte is working with you to create a world where there are no more homeless and unwanted animals. We are proud to be an “adoption guarantee” shelter. This means saving all cats and dogs that are rehabilitatable and manageable. Euthanasia is reserved only for those cases where an animal is suffering or poses a public safety concern.
We are committed to treating all animals that enter our shelter with love, kindness, and dignity.
The Humane Society of Charlotte is a private, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization supported by the generosity of many animal lovers, grants, bequests and fees for services.
• The Humane Society of Charlotte was founded in 1978.
• The first shelter was located on Commonwealth Avenue (1979-1980).
• The second shelter was located off Old Pineville Road (1981-1993)
.• The third and present shelter is located at 2700 Toomey Avenue, the former Charlotte/Mecklenburg Animal Shelter.
• The Humane Society of Charlotte Spay/Neuter Clinic opened in 1982 and was the first low-cost spay/neuterclinic in the Southeast.
The mission of the Humane Society of Charlotte is to bring love and hope to all animals by ensuring the humane treatment of companion animals through adoption, spay/neuter and education.
Our vision is all animals in safe and loving homes. This vision will be accomplished by providing care and compassion for all animals, physically and emotionally; education and information on the humane and responsible treatment of all animals; respect for animals and people; integrity in word and deed; collaboration with the community; and being fiscally responsible and accountable to the community.
