Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA is dedicated to the protection, humane treatment, and well being of all animals. This mission will be accomplished by our commitment to community outreach, humane education and prevention of cruelty to animals. We do not euthanize animals for space constraints and do not receive any federal, state, or county funding.
Become a permanent part of this exciting project by purchasing a paving stone, photo tile, or even an exercise area in your name or in the name of a beloved pet. Or make a simple one-time donation in the amount of your choosing.
When you make a contribution to our new shelter, your tax-deductible donation goes into a restricted fund, to be used only for building the new facility, where we will be able to house and assist homeless and abused animals and serve the public. xxx

But when he crossed the deck to leave, he heard a sound in the house. Jim approached the sliding glass door, and to his horror, he saw a dog approach the glass.

Each month, CGHS/SPCA’s Food Bank provides free pet food for hundreds of families who are experiencing financial hardships. “Lately, there has been an increased need for this service, so we are turning to the public for donations,” said Ron Perez, President/CEO of CGHS/SPCA. The shelter’s Food Bank is in need of dry cat and dog food. People who wish to donate may drop off food on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, or Saturday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., or Wednesday or Sunday from 9 a.m. until 12 noon. CGHS/SPCA can also accept gift cards and cash donations to purchase food for the Food Bank. Animal food donations are tax-deductible and deeply appreciated.
