The Humane Society of Charlotte believes in working 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 we can connect with a new family, another animal in need comes to HSC’s shelter.
The Humane Society of Charlotte follows a no-kill philosophy which is based on saving all animals that come to us. We believe that no healthy, treatable animal should have to be euthanized in our community. We are working towards this goal by supporting our local municipal shelter and those in the greater Charlotte community. Our commitment to this philosophy is evident in our live release rate of 99.9% for the animals that come into our care. We are able to have this excellent outcome by having programming and activities centered on our four pillars of focus which are prevention, retention, placement, and education.
That’s why, as a private 501(c)(3) nonprofit, the HSC relies on the generous support of animal-loving individuals in our community to fund our work, along with low-cost fees for adoption, spay/neuter, and wellness services.
The mission of the Humane Society of Charlotte is to be a community resource committed to improving the lives of companion animals through adoption, spay/neuter, and education.
