What We Do

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, behaviorally sound animal should have to be euthanized in our community. We only reserve euthanasia for animals whose prognosis is poor and quality of life is compromised or those that pose a danger to public safety. 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.

Interesting Info

HSC opened the first low cost spay/neuter clinic in the Southeast where we perform over 10,000 surgeries a year and host a weekly low cost wellness clinic.
Each year, we help find forever homes for nearly 3,000 animals each year. In 2018, that includes over 100 animals rescued from the path of Hurricane Florence.
HSC is a certified Service Enterprise! By including volunteers as part of our human capital strategy we are able to better achieve our mission.
