PLEASE SUPPORT CLAYTON COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY. ALL DONATIONS ARE APPRECIATED. THANK YOU!
CAN YOU HELP?
It’s never pleasant to plead for money, but when you’re a Humane Society, it’s always necessary. Our increasing numbers of animals, along with the fact that so many of them are ill or injured when we get them, and most them ARE NOT YET STERILIZED, means that our medical costs always far exceed our funds. We try very hard not to repeatedly ask our supporters, over and over throughout the year, for money. We try to limit our requests to a couple of times a year. We know everyone is struggling in these difficult economic times! So we’re hoping that any of you who can help us out with a donation, would consider doing so today. All donations to CCHS are tax deductible. Checks should be made payable to: Clayton County Humane Society, and mailed to: P.O. Box 2116, Jonesboro, Ga. 30237.
PLEASE NOTE WE ARE CURRENTLY WORKING ON UPDATING OUR WEBSITE. PLEASE KNOW THAT THIS IS A MASSIVE TASK, AND MAY BE A "WORK IN PROGRESS" FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD. WE HAVE UPDATED OUR SITE SO THAT THE "ADOPT" BUTTON TAKES YOU DIRECTLY TO OUR ADOPTION PAGES ON PETFINDER!

JENKINS HEATING AND AIR....SAVES THE DAY AT CLAYTON COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY!!When the old, outdated air-conditioning unit at the shelter recently went out, temperatures inside the building soared to over 90 degrees, and our animals were in real trouble! With no idea how to pay for repairs or replacement of the unit, CCHS management didn't know where to turn for help. We called on David Jenkins, owner of Jenkins Heating and Air, located in McDonough, Ga., someone who had done work for CCHS in the past. David was asked to evaluate the situation and give us an estimate of what the cost would be. Much to our surprise and delight, David DONATED AND INSTALLED A BRAND NEW SYSTEM!!! CCHS proudly recommends Jenkins Heating and Air to anyone in need of heating/air service. We think they're the greatest! Jenkins Heating and Air can be reached by calling 770/957-3091, and be sure to tell them that the CCHS gang sent you!
