The human-animal bond is unlike any other. We don’t speak the same language, yet that proves to be no obstacle for the invisible tie that binds us with our pets. It’s a relationship unlike any other. Despite all our differences, animals and humans bring out the best in each other and the Humane Society of Charlotte brings this reality to homes across the city and beyond every day.
The mission of the Humane Society of Charlotte is to deliver effective, innovative services that strengthen the human-animal bond and improve the lives of companion animals and the people who care about them. In other words, the Humane Society exists to see humans and animals become family.
"Until there are none, rescue one." Animal Adoption League's motto gets straight to the heart of their approach as a foster-based rescue organization: they won't give up until they have found loving homes for every animal that comes to them in need.
When a small group of women in York County, South Carolina became concerned over the growing number of homeless animals being destroyed at their local animal shelter in the early 90s, they decided to take action - and the Animal Adoption League was born.
Since becoming a nonprofit in 1992, AAL has paired more than 5,500 animals with loving adoptive families in several Southeastern states.
This December, SHARE Charlotte’s Spotlight Series: #AnimalsofCLT will focus in on our local nonprofit partners who care for the animals of Charlotte that are in need of shelter, food, rehabilitation or maybe even a companion. The nonprofit organizations we are highlighting this month serve the #AnimalsofCLT in a variety of different ways, all equally important to the wellbeing of our furry, feathered, and fanged friends.
SHARE Charlotte’s Spotlight Series: #AnimalsofCLT is presented by Parachute Media. Parachute Media is a forward thinking advertising agency with a heart for animals. Stay tuned this month as we explore the ways in which Parachute Media supports the #AnimalsofCLT as a company and why they wanted to help SHARE Charlotte spread the word about these incredible, local organizations.
We have so much great news to share from our nonprofit partners about their amazing work. But, we'd love to hear from you. Let us know if you have stories you'd like to tell and we'll make you a guest blogger!!
