July Donation - San Diego Humane Society

This month's $20 donation went to the San Diego Humane Society.

The organization served San Diego County since 1880 and provides vital services to animals and people alike through sheltering and adopting animals, providing positive reinforcement behavior training for adoptable animals and for owned animals through public training classes, investigating animal cruelty and neglect, providing adult and youth education programs, sharing animals through Pet-Assisted Therapy and rescuing animals in emergency situations.

A private nonprofit organization that receives no public or government funding, the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA is supported solely by contributions, grants, bequests, investments, proceeds from its retail outlets and some fees for service.
With a blog titled "Shtinkykat", I'm a bit ashamed that it took me this long to donate to the Humane Society. My one and only dealing with the Humane Society was 15 years ago when I rented a "humane trap" to capture a feral kitten at my apartment complex. I was planning to take her to the animal shelter but she stole my heart.

CC "the kitten" (1994-2006), is no longer with me, but the Humane Society allowed me to have a fun-filled 12 years with this lovely kitty. RIP CC and thank you SD Humane Society. =^..^=

Aw, love your kitty picture. I have one that looks like that now with the same 'I'm going to kill you' look on her face most of the time. :) So sorry she's not with you any more.

How is MJ doing? Still hanging in there? Most of my charities are animal charities, local rescues and shelters. I'm sure the Humane Society appreciates your donation, there are too many animals being given up right now.

I admire your philanthropic nature. Not many people think about others so regularly and follow through with financial donations.

By the way, I gave your blog an award. Come on over to see it!
