2017 Paws for the Arts

Thank you from the Suffolk Humane Society

This past year proved to be a challenging yet productive year for Suffolk Humane Society. Our board members brought constructive energy and concepts to the table at our monthly meetings and I am thankful to work with such a passionate group. Growth is our focus in 2017. Our adoptions rose in 2016 and now we are focused to increase our membership numbers! Our organization relies on members to support our cause in all aspects: fundraising, fostering, educating, and adoptions. A few of our major goals for this year include hiring an executive director, expanding our foster programs and community outreach events and as always seeking out and retaining members. We continue to invite all of you in our community to join us in our cause to decrease overpopulation, place homeless animals in their forever homes, and educate the community on healthy pet care. As I begin the second half of my presidency term I am grateful for this opportunity and will continue to strive in making a difference.

With your generous help, we can continue to work towards our goal of providing education to the community on humane treatment of animals and providing low-cost spay & neuter services to help control pet overpopulation. The Suffolk Humane Society depends on donations in order to conduct its operations.  Thank you so much for helping the Suffolk Humane Society help those that cannot speak for themselves.
