A Present to Add to Your Gift List

Making your gift lists and checking them twice? How about an idea that’s big on savings? It saves your time, saves on gift wrap, and—best of all—saves a pet’s life. Honor a special someone by making a donation to pets in need at the Connecticut Humane Society.

The animal enthusiast in your life will love it. That hard-to-buy-for relative will treasure the thought behind it. Your pet-loving coworker will be happy you supported her passion. This present will be one that makes a long-lasting and meaningful impact.

A donation of $36 fills the pets’ food bowls, and $50 buys a test for preventable illnesses (CHS veterinarians test all critters for sickness and provide necessary treatment).

If your loved one always appreciated Bob Barker’s signature spay/neuter sign-off on “The Price is Right,” how about a $100 donation to spay or neuter a CHS pet in need? (All pets are spayed or neutered by the medical team before they look for a family.) Or, if they support teaching compassion to future generations, $25 supports humane education in the local community through CHS’ school programs.

Someone who’s ever nursed a sick pet will especially appreciate you making a $200 donation in their name for medical care for pets like Eve, a terrier mix who will be battling heartworm for the next several months with medical treatments from CHS’ medical team.

With a growing amount of pets needing long-term medical treatment, donations for veterinary care are vital. CHS’ medical department is busy seven days a week, with anything from spays and neuters, to repairs on broken bones, to dental work, x-rays and more.

Make a holiday tribute gift online on the memorial/tribute page, and an e-card will be sent to your recipient, or you can request that a card be mailed. Plus, you’ll benefit come tax time—all donations are tax-deductible.

Want to give a gift that will literally lay the path for future pets needing a helping hand? Buy a memorial brick and engrave it with a message or name (maybe a pet’s name!) for the front walkway of CHS’ Waterford Pet Wellness and Adoption Center. Each brick is $100 and can have 3 lines of 16 characters per line. Visit the brick fundraiser page to get started, or contact Alicia Wright at 860-594-4502, ext. 6309, or awright@cthumane.org  

If Secret Santa is getting old around the office, an “ugly sweater” dress-down day can fundraise for CHS pets and make work feel festive. Visit this link for sample flyers, ideas and more.

When you surprise a friend or loved one with a donation to the pets for the holidays, you’re spreading joy and saving a pet’s life—no wrapping or big red bow needed.

Your gift can make a difference today, and 100% of your donation goes to the pets.
