The prevention of cruelty to animals. The relief of suffering among animals, and the extension of humane education.
Clay Humane is a private non-profit animal welfare organization located in Orange Park, Florida, which was established in 1978. Initially our service to the community was the operation of a small shelter for abandoned dogs and cats which provided veterinary care, sterilization, and adoption into suitable homes. During the time we operated the shelter, the proliferation of unwanted dogs and cats ultimately resulted in a euthanasia rate at the county's animal control facility of approximately 10,000 animals per year. It became obvious that while our shelter work was worthwhile, a more aggressive approach to the pet overpopulation problem was needed.
Clay County Humane Society responded by opening the area's first non-profit animal clinic where spay/neuter surgery and other basic veterinary care was offered at substantially reduced rates.
Our low-cost, full service, veterinary clinic, provides affordable veterinary treatment so that no animal need go without vital care when in need. See our clinic veterinary services →
