The pillar of any relationship is mutual respect and kindness – without it, information can not be shared and doors close. When respect and trust are established, doors open, and for us this means people and their pets receive the help they deserve. It is simple to exhibit these qualities when meeting people who are natural rescuers and are responsible for taking in and caring for thousands of pets in Baltimore City. We find this approach is effective in building relationships and expanding our mission.
Charm City Companions (501c3, non-profit) is a community outreach initiative, modeled after The HSUS Pets for Life community outreach program making an impact in underserved communities across the country. We work with pet owners and the community at large to keep pets off the streets, out of shelters and in their homes with the companions they love. Through our work we help build healthier, safer and stronger communities.
