CCHS RECEIVED ASPCA GRANT
An ASPCA grant makes the “Tag in Time, Saves your Canine” program possible.
The CCHS has announced that they are the proud recipients of a $3,000 grant from The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).
The grant money will fund the “Tag in Time, Saves Your Canine” program aimed at encouraging pet owners to ensure that their animals have proper identification tags.
“Having a tag on your pet helps ensure a quick and safe return in the unfortunate event that it is lost. CCHS wanted to ensure that there is a local and affordable option for pet identification tags. We are so proud to have received assistance from the ASPCA for this project,” said Deb Wesselman of CCHS.
The grant funds allowed CCHS to purchase a tag engraving machine.
Tags will be available for newly adopted pets and pets in the community.
Tags come in different sizes, shapes and colors and cost $6 for one engraved side and $7 for engraving on both sides.
PET TAGS MAY BRING YOUR LOST PET HOME QUICKLY
Pets sometimes wander off unexpectedly or run during a storm.
If your pet is wearing a tag with his name and your phone number, all it will take to get him home is a phone call.
Cheap and easy! Remember “A tag in time saves your canine” or feline for that matter.
Another good way to improve your pet’s chances of getting home is to microchip him.
A collar and tag could be lost, but a microchip is actually inserted under your pet’s skin.
This tiny implant carries a number to identify your pet.
The company where the chip is registered will contact you if your pet turns up at a vet, shelter or the police.
Micro-chipping costs a little more, but chances are it will never be lost and will last for the life of your pet.
BE SURE to have your pet checked for heartworm and make sure he is on heartworm preventative and flea and tick control!!
SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR PETS! It will help control overpopulation of unwanted pets and will make your pet healthier and happier.
WARM WEATHER IS FINALLY HERE!
Don’t forget to make sure your pet has protection from the sun, fresh water and plenty of food on hot days.
Never leave a pet untended in a car which will heat up like an oven in a very short time.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!
CCHS is entirely run by volunteers. We hope you will find a little time each month to volunteer at CCHS and make it possible for us to keep our building open and to care for our cats that live there or our dogs that visit. Be a part of the process!
Check your calendars and contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 526-4500 if you find a little time available, especially evenings from 5:30 until 7:30 pm.
If someone is already listed for a time you are available, feel free to join them. The work is easier if you share it.
Feel free to stop by anytime and ask what you can do to help.
VOLUNTEERS ALSO NEEDED…
CCHS needs volunteers for other services besides the building.
Extra handlers and helpers are always welcome at Meet and Greets, parades and other CCHS events.
Fostering is a big commitment, but worth the effort. The more fosters we have, the more dogs we can help.
Fosters house and care for pets, take them to vet appointments, and bring them to CCHS events and Meet and Greets. Whenever possible, fosters help with basic training, including housebreaking, crate-training, leash walking.
If you have room in your home and your heart, volunteer to foster and see how good it feels to help a homeless animal get a second chance.
