EVENT: Team Talmer
EVENT DATE: Jan 01, 2016
In 1887, a group of concerned individuals joined forces in an effort to ensure humane treatment of animals in St. Clair County.
Today, your Blue Water Area Humane Society, a full service organization, is still a donation supported partnership of people working together to ensure responsible care for and respectful treatment of companion animals in St. Clair County and the surrounding area.
Blue Water Area Humane Society a ‘No Time Limit’ shelter where no animal is euthanized to make room for incoming animals. All animals in adoption stay with us until they are adopted. If we are full, we stop accepting new animals for a few days until some are adopted and we have space available. No animal is refused admittance because of breed or type. While in our care, all animals are vaccinated and wormed. Dogs are tested for heartworm. Cats are tested for FELV & FIV. Cats and dogs are treated for fleas/ear mites if necessary. All known medical and dental problems are cared for and all animals 4 months and up (kittens when they are 3 lbs. and up) are neutered before leaving Blue Water Area Humane Society.
We are active in our community. We are the only organization in St. Clair County to provide an annual, full service Low-Cost Vaccination Clinic for limited income families and we address the pet over-population through our Spay & Neuter Voucher Program for limited income families. In many instances the Vouchers cover the entire cost of the surgery.
We are a ‘companion animal welfare’ organization, not an ‘animal rights’ group. We spend no money ‘lobbying’ for anything. Nor do we take a stand either for or against hunting and fishing, etc.
We are a 501(c)(3) organization and are funded by donations only. We do not receive any monies from governmental agencies or other humane societies.
The mission of your Blue Water Area Humane Society is to care for companion animals whose families can no longer care for them. To adopt them into permanent, loving homes and to end, through spaying and neutering, the horrific pet over-population problem (particularly amongcats) which exists in St. Clair County.
