Dedicated Volunteers Honored

Clay Humane honored some of its most dedicated volunteers and some of our community’s animal advocates at its annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on January 24th at the Pace Island Clubhouse. Over a delicious dinner provided by Nonie’s Catering and with dozens of friends of the Society in company, CCHS recognized individuals for their outstanding contributions in 2019 in advancing the mission of the organization which is “the prevention of cruelty to animals, the relief of suffering among animals, and the extension of humane education”.
