Why Furry Friends Make Great Christmas Gifts: Inspired by the Cedar Bend Humane Society

“I wish I may

I wish I might

Find a home

By Christmas Night”

— Your Furry Friends at the CBHS

We took time this holiday season to visit the Cedar Bend Humane Society (CBHS) and donate our services to help such a special organization in our community. There is so much to explore at the CBHS adoption center, and we want to thank the staff for welcoming us in to make a promotional video that makes a difference.

Did you know?

The CBHS is committed to reducing euthanasia which reflects their mission statement to provide humane care for all animals under their protection. The CBHS does not euthanize the animals in the shelter solely because they don’t get adopted. Some of the cats we were able to meet and interact with have been in the shelter from days, months, to as long as a year even. Apart from other alternatives and resources, there are various reasons why a shelter might have to put down animals and they might include reasons because of unsafe aggression, health and illness related reasons, as well as extreme age. The CBHS supports pet owners in the community in order to make these decisions for their dearly loved pets.

There are many ways to get involved at the shelter.  The CBHS facilitates Humane Education that meets the needs of the community. Some of the programs that exist include responsible pet ownership, helping children learn how to interact appropriately with pets, handling behavior issues, preparing for natural disasters, and expert’s advice on pet health. Becoming a volunteer is another way to get involved in the events and help take care of the animals and facility! Another rewarding way to get involved is to foster animals before they enter the shelter’s adoption program.
