Coulee Region Humane Society actively promotes the humane treatment of animals and positive human-animal relationships.
A Crazy Little Thing Called Hope
Staff at the shelter work to find ways to place animals that at one time may have been found to be “unadoptable”. One successful adoption for a senior pet or animal with health problems is one step forward in redefining what it means to be “adoptable”.
Consider KitKat, a 16 year old cat who at one point in time may have been considered too old to place up for adoption but, when given the chance, found someone who embraced his age and welcomed him into a loving home. Or Bear, a German Shepherd who faced a number of allergy related medical problems but was given a chance by a kind gentleman who could look past the numerous prescriptions to see this dog's handsome face and gentle disposition. Or, finally, Penny, a 20lb cat who faces a long road of diet and exercise, who may have been “too much work” in a different time but now found a family dedicated to bringing her to good health while loving her sweet self.
As we begin 2014, we use our hope to fuel our work as we strive to place as many animals as possible into loving homes. We strive to use your support to create new possibilities. Whether you volunteer, donate or adopt, we are grateful for the hope you bring to the animals at our shelter.
CRHS is a member of the No More Homeless Pets Partnership.
We recently received a grant from Best Friends Animal Society to reduce the adoption fee for select animals who might be harder to place because of a medical condition, breed or personality trait such as shyness. For these animals there is a $40 reduction in the adoption fee, $20 from the grant matched by $20 from CRHS.
