What is Pet Palooza?

Pet Palooza is the Humane Society of Charlotte’s annual fundraising walk and pet festival. Being a part of Pet Palooza is a fun way to make a difference in the lives of thousands of animals in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg region. 

Last year, thanks to our amazing sponsors, vendors and walkers, we were able to raise more than $100,000 to help further our mission of delivering effective, innovative services that strengthen the human-animal bond and improve the lives of companion animals and the people who care about them, and we hope to raise even more on April 27th!

Thank you to our Amazing Sponsors!
