Building a safer, happier community for pets and people

The Humane Society of Charlotte believes education and understanding about the interconnectedness between humans and animals are as important to building happy, healthy, pet-friendly communities as it is to build happy, healthy, pet-friendly homes. We are working hard to make an impact here in Charlotte through public education and services that not only save the lives of animals but also improve the quality of life and safety of our community. One of the best ways that we can ensure a positive future for animals in the Charlotte region is to play a part in helping people care for and keep their pets in their homes.

We are making significant progress in this area by providing resources, tools, and education to pet families through programs like HSC’s Critter Care Wellness Clinics, HSC’s Community Outreach Pet Food Bank, behavior support, and partnerships with other non-profits like those listed below.

Help support our Pet Food Bank by hosting your very own pet food drive! Download our Food Bank Toolkit for easy instructions on how to get started.
