100 Women Who Care voted to support the Clay County Humane society during the third quarter of 2015.
The Humane Society houses between 400 and 500 cats and dogs annually and are always at or over capacity. Each animal receives all of the necessary vaccinations, blood testing and is sprayed or neutered. This process ensures that the animals are healthy and are not adding to the issue of animal over population in Clay County. Since they are a no kill shelter, the Humane Society ends up having to turn down animals that are brought to their shelter due to lack of space.
The $9,000 grant from 100 Women Who Care Clay County will be used to expand the agency’s kennel space and exercise/play area for the cats and dogs. This expansion will allow the shelter to house more animals and keep them off the streets of Clay County. “I am thrilled that the members [of 100 Women Who Care Clay County] chose the Clay County Humane Society for this quarter,” exclaimed the Clay County Humane Society Board President, Janice Clark, “The donation will allow us to shelter more animals and make our community safer from vicious dogs and feral cats.”
