Meet Our Partners

Building a better community for animals together

The goal of the Partnership for Pets campaign is unite agencies, beginning with the Humane Society of Charlotte and Charlotte Mecklenburg Animal Care & Control, to work together to raise awareness for animal issues in Charlotte, North Carolina and educate citizens on how they too can get involved to help their communities animals.

Our partnership has been strengthened over the years by the Foundation For The Carolinas, one of the largest community foundations in the Southeast and among the top 10 in the United States. They exist to help individuals, families, nonprofits and corporations make a positive impact on their communities. One such family was the Patterson family. George D. Patterson & his daughter Sally were avid animal lovers. They believed in the work of our two agencies, supporting collaborative campaigns between the two agencies for many years. This fund that still remains in their honor provided the much-needed funding to create the Partnership for Pets campaign.
