2017 Give Them a Hand

At 11 years old, Ivy was starting over. Her owner was moving, and she had to say goodbye to everything she’d ever known since she was a pup. She needed someone to give her a hand.

The medical treatment and TLC she soon received got her through the hardest days of her life. She’s now found a home for her golden years. Ivy’s new mom loves that she’s a mellow senior who still enjoys gentle playtime and evening strolls.

Your gift of $72 provides the transitional care for pets like Ivy.

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.
