Staff Pick of the Month: Phoebe
Meet Phoebe! Phoebe is a shy lady who really wants a person she can trust and love.
She prefers to spend all of her time with her human and gets lonely if you leave her alone for too long.
Phoebe would prefer a home where her adopter works from home or can otherwise stay with her for a large amount of time. To live her best life, she would also need to be the only dog in the home.
If you would like to meet Phoebe, come by HSC today!

HSC Spotlight: Community CATsnip
Join the Humane Society of Charlotte for our first-ever Community Cat TNR surgery event on Monday, March 18!
TNR, or Trap-Neuter-Return, prevents the reproduction of unowned community cats by getting them to our clinic for spay or neuter. We have spots for 60 cats from Mecklenburg County ONLY and all surgeries are free thanks to a generous grant. TNR surgeries include spay/neuter, rabies vaccine, ear-tip, and microchip.
Cats and kittens must weigh at least 2 lbs to be eligible for surgery. To be eligible day-of, cats must be secured in a trap upon arrival, one cat per trap. Traps can be borrowed from HSC.
BY APPOINTMENT ONLY - SiGN UP ASAP - Spots are limited!
Drop Off: 8 - 8:30 am. Caretakers will pick up their cats 3:30 - 4 pm
Leave Your Legacy
The Humane Society of Charlotte invites you to join other supporters who have already taken the steps necessary to ensure the future of our organization. Planned giving makes every dollar go farther. 
To maximize your charitable giving, as well as fulfill your own financial needs, you can fund the future of the Humane Society of Charlotte through your estate planning. 
"The Humane Society of Charlotte is important to me because of all the great work it does to help create better lives for the helpless animals in the county. From the spay/neuter clinic that helps put the brakes on an exploding population to the foster program that socializes and cares for the youngest and sometimes sickest. From the vet staff to customer service to the animal caretakers...all are important and from what I have seen, very good at what they do! My late wife Vicki and I started out fostering cats and kittens and we both thought the world of the foster program. It is unique and exceptionally well run. It helps lay the groundwork for successful adoptions and was the experience that led to Vicki donating a portion of her estate and why I am planning on doing the same. Hopefully by the time my gift is realized, HSC will be settled into a new animal resource center and the gift will be used to help bring awareness to the good work that they do." - Bruce Pietrangelo
For more information on making a planned gift and becoming a member of our Legacy Society, please contact Donna Canzano Stucker, or call 704-494-7704.
