We Bring Humane Education to You!

The Humane Society of Charlotte will enhance your classroom with our animal and compassion-based curriculum. HSC offers small and large group lessons and presentations tied to Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the North Carolina Standard Course of Study (NCSCOS) curriculum at local schools. Lessons are designed for your students to help build character, kindness, and animal knowledge.

Attention Teachers: Interested in learning how you can bring Social and Emotional Learning into your classroom virtually? Email to learn more!

To further support our animal life-saving programs, we ask for a commitment of at least $150 or classroom participation in a pet food drive.
