AMAZON WISH LIST

It takes a village. Without your generous help, we wouldn’t be able to do it.

On an average day at Cherryland Humane Society, we provide care for many dogs and cats at a cost of nearly $1,200. Your dollars pay for food, medical attention, vaccinations — all the things needed to care for these animals until we can unite them with their fur-ever families.
