2017 Friends for Life

Update, 9/7/17: We apologize for the inconvenience, but our recent e-blast's Donate Now button misdirected you to this page. Please visit the following to contribute to CT Humane's Texas relief efforts:

Philip's military career was behind him and something was missing. No longer around lots of people in the Army, he was lonely. So he visited the Connecticut Humane Society where he took one look at the 2-month-old black lab mix and the bond was instant. Summer was his, and he was hers, for life.

Now, Summer comforts him through tough days and the emotions that come along with being a veteran. "With her, I know I'm always going to have a friend," Philip says.

Your gift of $72 will give 2 pets shelter for one day and make it possible for them to experience the transformative power of love.

Is CT Humane a member of any national organization like the HSUS or ASPCA?


No, we are not affiliated with any national organizations. The Connecticut Humane Society is a local non-profit that provides immediate and critical services to pets in our community. There is no national organization which provides direct care and financial support to Connecticut shelters on an ongoing basis.  Supporting your local shelter supports your community.
