Cat sitting and meowing

Together we can change the life of some very lucky animals in your community this year.

Dear Friend of Clay Humane,

Our generous supporters helped so many animals in need - domesticated and wild, owned and feral, well and injured. Your kind gift enabled us to reach more animals… to prevent more suffering and needless deaths. People like you, who value the unconditional love and companionship that only a pet can bring, counted on us to help protect that special bond. Every cent you contributed to CCHS last holiday season went to supporting our many worthwhile programs and the vital services that they provide to our community. Every gift helped spay or neuter a cat, preventing the unwanted birth of hundreds of cats who contribute to overcrowded shelters and high euthanasia rates. Each gift helped sponsor a bird of prey’s medical care and diet while rehabilitating to return to the wild. Each donation made emergency surgery and life-saving measures possible for abused, critically injured animals. Your donation helped equip our disaster response team to assist during fires, floods, and evacuations. Every penny of your kind donation made a difference.

We ask for your continued help.

The overwhelming task of improving the lives of others – both two and four-legged – is not the job of one person, but many. It is through solid cooperative efforts, and compassion for our fellow living beings, that our community will flourish. Clay Humane is proud to lead the way toward a community that shares a vision of better lives for our animals and, in turn, for those who love them. Albert Schweitzer once said “Do something for somebody every day for which you don’t get paid.” Mr. Schweitzer clearly understood the role of community in enriching the lives of those around us.

Once more, we ask for your continued support for the coming year. Reaching our goals for our community will take help from great friends like you. There are many ways you can continue to support Clay Humane as we head into our most exciting and ambitious year ever:


  • Make a tax-deductible online (or mail in!) monetary gift in honor of your loved ones to send birthday cheer and let them know lives have been saved in their honor.
  • Make your mark on our “Building a More Humane Future” plaque! With a minimum donation of $500, you can honor an individual or a beloved pet in our permanent collection engraved with a name.

Mary Fortson
