Be My Furry Valentine!
Chilton County Humane Society is launching it’s first "Be My Furry Valentine" fundraiser for much needed repairs and improvements.
Sponsors can choose their level through February 14, 2015. Levels include "Be Mine” at $100, ”You're Cute” at $25, “Sweetie" at $10, and “Secret Admirer” at any amount.
Sponsorships can be dropped of at the Humane Society at 139 Shade Tree Drive in Clanton or completed online using the donate button on the left.
Specifically, these funds will be used to complete the new cat area, repair existing kennels, and begin work on the Intake and Overflow areas of the shelter that have not been addressed in years. The cat area will provide a space for the cats and kittens to be circulated out of cat towers into a large enclosure inside where they can safely jump, climb, stretch their legs and sun in a window. This will keep the cats and kittens healthier and provide more exercise. Cats not in the large play enclosure will be in cat towers rather than being enclosed in small wall kennels.
A separate area for animal intake is needed to help control the infectious diseases that can sweep through a shelter. Animals coming in as strays are more likely to have a disease than an animal who was surrendered to the shelter by an owner. For the health of all of the animals, it is best to keep these groups separate for a short period.
Animals that have been tagged for rescue or have been adopted and are waiting to leave with their families can go into an overflow kennels that we would like to build on the grounds. This would assure that the public sees the dogs and cats that are available for adoption and alleviate confusion for the public.
