chs values

CHS Humane Values defined as:

Ethical care

An emphatic ethic of care:

We consider and accommodate, as much as possible, the physical, emotional, behavioral, and social well-being of each animal from that individual animal’s perspective.

A helping ethic:

We support people in making good adoption choices that meet their specific circumstances as well as helping people keep their companion animals by giving them the tools and resources to correct the issues that are driving their desire to relinquish their animal.

A community ethic:

The well being of people and animals by fostering greater awareness and focus upon the role of various community institutions in creating solutions to the root causes of companion animal homelessness, neglect, cruelty and violence.
