Staff Pick of the Month: Valentina
Meet Valentina!
Playful dogs like me want to enjoy all sorts of games with you. We can play anything you want! I like tug of war, wrestling matches, and chasing after things. It's important for me to be both physically and mentally active. I'm on my best behavior when I receive regular physical and mental activity!
Come meet Valentina at HSC today!

Pet Food Bank Thank You!
A huge THANK YOU to our awesome volunteers for helping out with our first food bank of the new year. This was the second busiest food bank in almost 2 years and we could not serve our community without their help!
Are you interested in supporting our food bank? We are in constant need of dog food, cat food and treats. Consider holding a pet food and supply drive at your school, apartment complex, gym, workplace, place of worship or community center.
If you’re interested in holding a pet food drive please contact slyttle@humanecharlotte.org or call 704-494-7710 for more information on how to get things started.
