Your pets might be looking forward to some special treats and toys this holiday season. But what about pets in need? Well, you can make sure they get everything on their wish lists too, and you can give a gift to a loved one or friend at the same time: Honor a special someone by making a donation to Connecticut Humane Society pets.
Whether it’s for your friend who lives far away, the relative who’s tough to buy for, an animal lover in your life, or anyone else you remember for the holidays, this gift makes a difference in their life and also for pets in need.
How about a $100 donation in the person’s honor for a pet’s lifesaving care? (Pets receive all the medical care they need with CHS’ medical team before they start looking for a family.) Or, if you’re honoring someone passionate about education, $50 supports a humane education program for local kids. And a $30 gift keeps a pet with the family they already know and love by providing vaccines for preventable illnesses.
Make a holiday tribute gift by mail, phone or online at CThumane.org/tribute. You can even have an e-card or print card mailed to your friend or loved one!
Another great gift is a memorial brick! Engrave it with a message for the front walkway of CHS’ Waterford location. Each brick is $100 and can have three lines of 16 characters per line. Visit CThumane.org/bricks to get started, or contact Alicia Wright at 800-452-0114, ext. 6309, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
An “ugly holiday sweater” dress-down day can fundraise for CHS pets and make work (even work from home) feel festive as well. Visit CThumane.org/getinvolved for sample flyers and more.
When you surprise a friend or loved one with a donation to the pets, you’re spreading joy and saving a pet’s life—no big red bow needed.
