Join Us in Supporting the Humane Society of Charlotte

At Schleich, we’ve been helping children learn about pets for nearly 85 years. We’ve been proud to partner with the Humane Society of Charlotte for multiple promotions in 2020. During Adopt A Shelter Dog Month in October, Schleich donated a portion of proceeds to the Humane Society of Charlotte through our “Schleich Supports Shelter Pets” program. On Giving Tuesday (December 1st), we donated $1 from every sale made on our site AND $1 for every new newsletter signup to the Humane Socaity of Charlotte!

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.
