How is CHS funded?

CHS relies primarily on the support of donors like you to sustain its mission. Adoptions, program fees and investments supplement CHS, but only your gifts make it possible to offer services to pets in need. Without you, adoption fees and programs like CHS’ Fox Memorial Clinic would cost substantially more to the community.
