Pet Palooza REROUTED

Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19 and with the safety of our supporters, staff, and volunteers being of the utmost importance, Pet Palooza 2021 will remain virtual. While we are pupset that we won't see you in person this year, we are looking forward to a week of Pet Palooza fun kicking off on April 19th and ending on April 24th!

What is Pet Palooza? Pet Palooza is a way for the Charlotte community to support the Humane Society of Charlotte by participating in our virtual fundraising walk! Grab your friends, family, neighbors, and pups and sign up to walk one mile the week of April 19. The week will wrap up with virtual festivities on April 24! Please remember to follow CDC guidelines if choosing to walk with others.
