Time and again, wonderful folks tell us, “I donate to the humane society!” Often, what they actually mean is that they donate to the Humane Society of the United States, which is NOT affiliated with local humane societies like us.
HSUS is primarily focused on legislation, and does not “kick down” the donations they get to local organizations like ours. In fact, even though 85% of their fundraising materials and commercials feature shelter animals, they do not operate a single pet shelter.
The Calaveras Humane Society urges you to donate locally if you want to help pets in need in your community. ♥️🐾
Only 1% of the budget of The Humane Society of the United States helps shelter animals.
Your Calaveras Humane Society is focused on helping pets and pet owners right here in Calaveras County.
