Operation Pit-STOP Overpopulation - North Carolina

The Humane Society of Charlotte
2700 Toomey Avenue
Charlotte, NC 28203

February 1, 2011

We are excited to announce our first pit bull spay/neuter promotion called Operation Pit-STOP Overpopulation that the Humane Society of Charlotte is conducting in conjunction with Charlotte Mecklenburg Animal Care & Control, the SPCA Alliance and the American Pit Bull Foundation. Our goal is to spay & neuter over 100 pit bulls that would otherwise go unaltered. We are conducting this campaign in honor of Spay Day, a national annual campaign of The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International, to inspire people to save animal’s lives by spaying or neutering pets and feral cats.

Throughout the month of February, we will be setting appointments for pit bulls to be altered on a first come, first served basis. Each surgery costs the Humane Society of Charlotte an average of $65. We are collecting funds to help us reach our goal to sterilize at least 100 dogs. If you are interested in donating to the project, please contact Donna Canzano at 704-494-7704. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment, please contact Clinic Manager Tammy Cornell at 704-377-0534, ext. 233 or via email at
