Contra Costa Humane Society & these pets need your help

Times are tough right now for many of our neighbors, friends and family. With so much financial unease in our communities, many companion animals are feeling the pinch as well. Many caretakers are not able to provide their animals with the medical care they might so desperately need.

Contra Costa Humane Society (CCHS) has one of the county’s only emergency funding and spay/neuter assistance programs for low-income residents. With a growing need in the community for financial assistance, we’re thankful for each and every dime that is donated to our Emergency Medical Fund (EMF) or our Spay/Neuter Assistance program (SNAP).

I know that your readers are animal lovers, as you and I are. I am hoping that some of them might have a few extra dollars this season that they might consider donating to help our community’s companion animals receive the medical attention that might very likely save their lives or prevent unwanted kittens or puppies.

** Donations can be sent to Contra Costa Humane Society, 609 Gregory lane, Suite 210, Pleasant Hill, CA 94523. Donors should note either EMF or SNAP on the check.

** Donations can also be made via credit card by visiting and following the links to the donation page.

CCHS and the animals of our community thank you for printing this letter and your wonderful readers for caring enough to donate!
Marilyn Fowler, President, CCHS Board of Directors

Dear Marilyn:
Thank YOU and CCHS for the wonderful job you do for helping to care for the pets of the low-income residents of our community. Yes … every little bit DOES help and I know my generous and caring readers will do what they can to help you in your efforts. Thanks for caring everyone, and have a Happy Holiday Season! /Gary

    It’s also important to help protest the Governor’s plan to tax vet care!!! Imagine you are struggling financially and your pet needs medical care, having taxes added to the bill could push you over the edge and you might not be able to take care of your animal! Instead of taxing pets and working people, the Governor needs to raise income taxes on the wealthy. Here’s a link to help you send a letter:

    Dear Gary, Thank you for this article. I went online & made a small donation right away.I only wish that I had seen a way to make the donation in someones name in lieu of a present.
    Happy Holidays,
