The Coalition for Humane Treatment of Animals, Inc. is a 501(c)3 North Carolina non-profit, all-volunteer, animal welfare organization. Our acronym (CHTA) is pronounced "Cheetah" like the Big Cats on our logo.
 
We were conceived in 2007 as a grassroots organization to turn APATHY into ACTION and COURAGE into STRENGTH. Just like a coalition of cheetahs that stand together to accomplish their task, we are committed in our mission to effect positive, humane changes in Brunswick County for all animals (especially dogs, cats and feral cats) regardless of where they call home.

About Us

Our Mission: What We Do

We...

Our Tenets

(Adopted from the
No-Kill Revolution Philosophy)

BELIEVE IN responsible pet ownership; spaying & neutering; rescue efforts; and finding loving homes for animals who are the "wrong" breed or color, are disabled, have "issues," or any number of other biases which label them as "unadoptable"

SUPPORT caring for "community cats" and Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) for stay and feral cats

PROMOTE "pet intervention" (finding solutions to help KEEP PETS IN THEIR HOMES as opposed to them being tossed out on the "street," or turned over to a shelter or, worse, a kill facility)

INSIST on full prosecution of those who are intentionally cruel to animals and those who contributed in some way to the cruelty or fail to report it

EMBRACE the NO-KILL Revolution in America (see Tenets below)

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE the COURAGE OF ONE and never undervalue the STRENGTH OF MANY!

Population management (spaying/neutering)

Humane education (care and responsibility)

Abandonment, neglect, and cruelty (prevention and prosecution)

Humane euthanasia (euthanasia by injection [EBI] as opposed to the gas chamber in municipal and private facilities)

Humane laws and ordinances (educating the public and working with government)

Yea! The county is now using EBI as it's first choice for euthanasia for cats and most dogs. But...we'll be happier when the Gas Chamber goes out the door! C'mon, Commissioners. You can do this!
