iBuild – Our Community Fence Building Program
Our iBuild program provides relief to canines that are currently chained up and suffering from stress and depression. Our ultimate goal is to move outside pets indoor through various forms of education, behavior counseling, etc. The kennel fences are built entirely by volunteers from the Humane Society of Charlotte.
We have designed a program to assist low income pet owners in need of a fenced enclosure in their yard in order to unchain their pets. We focus on building in targeted areas in conjunction with grassroots outreach to reduce the number of canine intakes. To make a donation to our HSC iBuild program, click here.
