CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Humane Society of Charlotte and NoDa Brewing Company collaborated for a second year to raise money to support the mission of HSC.

Rescue Brew, which is an online photo competition featuring cats and dogs, will run through May 31 with the winning entries being announced on June 2.

Members of the Charlotte community and beyond are encouraged to submit photos of their dogs or cats to compete for the Top Dog or Queen City Kitty title.
