Kennel Sponsorships

Audio Video Extremes webKennel sponsorships provide a great opportunity for individuals, families, communities, group organizations and companies to publicly show their commitment to helping homeless animals in our community.  Sponsorships directly benefit animals by allowing us to provide shelter, basic exams, vaccines, and other kennel needs for the animals in our care.

There are two kennel sponsor options, both of which display a personalized plaque on a kennel for one year.  Our cat room and small dog/puppy room kennels feature small kennel plaques, and cost $300 per year to sponsor.  Our two kennel rooms for dogs feature large kennel plaques, and cost $500 per year to sponsor.

We triple dog dare you to help us save lives!

Vicki and abbiDear Friends of Animals,

With your help, we’ve been able to make our Humane Society a place that cares for the animals we all love with amazing results.   You help us “fix” them in many ways.  We don’t just neuter or spay them – we fix whatever needs fixing.  That may mean figuring out what’s wrong with several tests or x-rays.  Or we may need to take care of an old injury that didn’t heal properly.  And sometimes, it’s fixing a behavior that would keep them from getting adopted.  We’re extremely grateful to you for giving us the means to fix these wonderful animals.

Right now, our need for your support is greater than ever.

The building where we care for the animals is getting old.  We’re facing major repairs – including a new roof – and we need to raise the funds to do those repairs. The last thing we want is for the building to affect the outstanding care we provide to our furry clients.   I know you don’t want that either.  Together, we have an opportunity to make great things happen for the animals while still keeping the roof from leaking into the kennel rooms.  But we need your help!

Check Out Our New Kitty Portals!

Cat Portal webIf you visit our cat room you will notice a lot more purring and happier kitties these days, thanks to a grant from the ASPCA which allowed us to purchase 13 cat portals.  These portals combine two cages into one, giving our feline friends twice as much space!  With the help of volunteers who installed them, these portals came at no cost to the Tri-County Humane Society, but their value is immeasurable.  Come and see for yourself!
