Local business owner recognized for support of animal welfare

May 18. Robin Smith Salzman, co-owner of Lake Norman Chrysler Jeep Dodge, will be honored Friday at a luncheon hosted by the Humane Society of Charlotte. The annual Women for Animal Welfare Luncheon was created to celebrate the work women do to help animals.

Smith Salzman began supporting the Humane Society by making a gift in honor of her mother, an animal lover. Over the past several years, she has supported the HSC through vehicle donations, event sponsorships and gifts to the Have a Heart Medical Fund. She has also included the organization in her estate planning.

Molly Green, a student at Charlotte Latin School, will also be recognized by the HSC for raising more than $12,000 in the last three years through lemonade stands and an annual fundraising dinner.

Two hundred women are expected to attend the luncheon sponsored by Dr. Elizabeth Rostan of Charlotte Skin and Laser. Maureen O’Boyle of WBTV will host the event.

“It is an honor to gather with so many women in the community who are passionate about the mission of our organization,” said Shelly Moore, president and CEO of the HSC.

In 2015, the Humane Society of Charlotte assisted more than 25,000 animals and their families, successfully placed more than 2,900 dogs and cats into new homes, and performed 12,470 surgeries, many of which were targeted to the populations most at risk.
