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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
