From Upcoming Events to our HSC Staff Pick of the Month, 
Shelter Happenings  is for YOU!

Sweet Stella is a staff favorite here at the Humane Society of Charlotte. At eight years young, she still has plenty of energy to play and chase toys. Stella loves human affection, cuddles, and will gladly share her fluffy bed with you.

Stella has done well with other dogs here at HSC and would do best in a home that is willing to give her plenty of love and affection. If you're interested in adopting Stella, come visit her at our main shelter!

We need volunteers - no experience or fitness level necessary!
iBuild is designed to build free, fenced-in yards for dogs at no charge to their owners. Help these dogs escape life on a chain!

Many of our volunteers have told us, "it's one of the most rewarding experiences we've have ever had."

Community Cats Project

Have you ever heard the phrase, "kitten season is coming" as it gets warmer outside?

As the temperature rises, outdoor cats become more active as they search for mates and places to give birth to litters of kittens! The potential for a population explosion can be huge and the Humane Society of Charlotte's Community Cats project is helping to get the population under control.

A cat colony of 19 cats was Trapped, Neutered, and Released in February  near Ashley Road. Nearly half of the colony was female and all were un-spayed before they arrived at our clinic. 

I f you're interested in volunteering, have questions, or want to know more about trapping cats in your neighborhood, please contact  our Community Cat Coordinator for more details at  704-494-7717 or
