Together We Are Saving Lives
Dear Animal Supporter,
Four decades ago, we came to you about working together to change the face of animal welfare in Clay County. You may remember some of our many success stories over the years, and it is YOU, our supporters that we have to thank for helping make those success stories possible. Many animals have found comfort, relief, sanctuary, and second chances at Clay Humane thanks to your generosity and dedication to our first initiative those 40 years ago.
Clay Humane is one of Clay County's oldest and most proactive animal welfare organizations, motivated by one goal - fostering humane attitudes in our communities and, in turn, ending the needless euthanasia of healthy animals in our shelters. Every day the Society and its veterinary clinic provides low cost or free veterinary care, promotes humane education, performs pet-assisted therapy for the elderly or disabled and works to rehabilitate injured, orphaned and displaced wildlife. In October 2013, we launched our most aggressive spay and neuter initiative to date  FREE cat sterilizations available to anyone, anywhere. Since, we have sterilized nearly 25,000 feral and owned cats, preventing tens of thousands of unwanted births and we have no plans to slow down.
Your support has been instrumental in helping to ensure the future of these and many other valuable programs. Throughout its 40 year history, Clay Humane has been a solid fixture in the community - and we could not have done it without you. As we receive no county or state funding, the income from our ever-hectic clinic and the generous contributions of our dedicated supporters empower us to assist those who have nowhere else to turn when in need. With your help, the Society will continue to serve individuals from around the area - raising consciousness to the importance of responsible, compassionate pet ownership.
Present membership expires soon! If you have not already renewed, please do so now.
We wish you a safe and humane year.

Linda Lake
Board President

Summer Tips For Pets
Keep cool with these important tips
The dog days of summer are upon us -- a time that could threaten the health of your pet. Most animals begin to feel uncomfortable in temperatures above 85 degrees. Use these important tips to make sure your furry four-legged family members stay happy and healthy during the hot weather.
  • Never leave your pet in the car. Though it may seem cool outside, the sun can raise the temperature inside your car to 120 degrees Fahrenheit in a matter of minutes, even with the windows rolled down. If you need to run some errands, leave the furry ones at home.

Clay Humane About Town
We had a blast at our guest speaking engagement for All About Animals 4-H Day Camp in Green Cove Springs. This camp focuses on discovering different careers in the animal world. Campers interact with different animals, enjoy educational field trips, and have the opportunity to meet with and listen to animal related professionals like Clay Humane!
In early July, Clay Humane read books about service dogs to local Clay County children at the Green Cove Springs Library. Dee Talty, along with "Maggie", discussed the role of pet-assisted therapy dogs who are notably different from service dogs but still play a valuable role in our community. Do you know the difference?
Humane hero, Rebekah Harp, discusses the importance of fostering humane attitudes and behavior during her humane education presentation at Sugar N Spice Child Care in Orange Park. Our school presentations are just some of the ways that we educate the public. A big thank you to Sugar N Spice for the donations! Learn how you can help too.
