Membership Makes A Difference
Dear Animal Friend:
There has been nothing normal about the past year. Our usual way of working and pursuing goals completely changed. The pandemic created the largest single year pet adoption rate, but also, ironically, created the greatest obstacles to providing veterinary care. We endured setbacks and restrictions that significantly impacted our ability to fully carry out our spay and neuter initiatives and, like everyone, we fought to keep our staff safe and our clients healthy. Yet, we all kept going in the face of all this—an undeniable accomplishment in itself.
We see you! You are appreciated!
While it has been a difficult and trying year, your understanding, compassion, and good hearts have shown through. Most of our wonderful clients and supporters have been beacons of positivity and purpose in a time where many are uncertain. It is said that it is in the most difficult times that the truth of a person’s soul is seen.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting Clay Humane as best as possible given these circumstances. We know it has not been easy adapting to all of these changes, managing changes in your own personal lives, and still continuing to be exceptional advocates for our community’s animals.
Clay Humane is one of our area’s oldest and most proactive animal welfare organizations, motivated by one goal – fostering humane attitudes in our communities and, in turn, ending the needless euthanasia of healthy animals in our shelters. Every day the Society and its veterinary clinic provides low-cost or free veterinary care, promotes humane education, perform pet-assisted therapy for the elderly or disabled, and works to rehabilitate injured, orphaned, and displaced wildlife. We have sterilized over 25,000 feral and owned cats for free and over 100,000 at significantly reduced costs, preventing tens of thousands of unwanted births. And we have no plans to slow down. In fact, in July of 2018, we introduced our new after-hours urgent care program. We are now open even more hours to ensure quality, affordable care is available for your pets!
Your support has been instrumental in helping to ensure the future of these and many other valuable programs. Throughout its 43 year history, Clay Humane has been a solid fixture in the community – and we could not have done it without your help. As we receive no county or state funding, the income from our ever-hectic clinic and the generous contributions of our dedicated supporters empower us to help those who have nowhere else to turn when in need. With your help, the Society will continue to serve individuals from around the area - raising consciousness to the importance of responsible, compassionate pet ownership.
