Humane Society Calumet Area Launches Alumni Association for Adopted Pets

Humane-Society-Calumet-AreaDid you adopt a pet from Humane Society Calumet Area (HSCA)? In honor of the organization’s 75th anniversary, adopters are invited to register their pet as a member of the animal shelter’s new alumni association.

Modeled after university alumni associations, HSCA’s Alumni Association will keep members up-to-date on the latest news from their alma mater and members will receive specially branded keepsakes. This year’s membership premium will be a bandana and adopters will have the option to purchase a t-shirt as well.

“We have many adopters who send in stories about how their adopted pet has made such a difference in their lives,” HSCA Marketing Director Ashley Boyer said, “and we thought that an alumni association would be a great way to bring together the thousands of pets and adopters whose lives have been positively impacted through the organization.”

Membership fees begin at $25 and all members receive a membership card, a subscription to HSCA's "Speak!" magazine, access to a private alumni Facebook group, a discount coupon on the pet's birthday and more.

Funds raised from the alumni association will help provide food, shelter, and medical care for the animals of HSCA. Many of the animals who find shelter at HSCA have had no prior medical care and need extensive treatment before they can find forever homes.
