The Humane Society of Charlotte

The Humane Society of Charlotte was started in 1978 in Charlotte, North Carolina. The life-saving organization believes in working constantly to improve our community by creating new, loving families, and building a world where there are no more homeless and unwanted animals. This is an ongoing process — for every animal they can connect with a new family, another animal in need comes into their shelter.

The Humane Society of Charlotte follows a no-kill philosophy, which is based on saving all animals that come to them. They believe that no healthy, treatable, behaviorally sound animal should have to be euthanized in our community. 

HSC is a private, 501(c)(3) nonprofit and does not receive any support or funding from local or federal government or national groups. They rely on the generous support of animal-loving individuals in our community to fund their work, along with low-cost fees for adoption, spay/neuter, and wellness services.
