It has been an exciting year for the “Bring Us Home” Capital Campaign! We have raised over $1.3 million as of June 1st! Thank you for all of your generous support! Our goal is to start construction by the end of 2017!

Danielle Howard is our spotlight volunteer! Danielle has been volunteering for us for almost 4 years! She is an animal lover but she has a special place in her heart for our cats! She loves to socialize the cats and give them extra attention! She even teaches our new volunteers how to socialize the cats and get them to feel more comfortable around new people which increases their chances of adoption. We truly appreciate Danielle’s dedication to our shelter and we are so grateful to have her as part of the CVHS family! Thank you Danielle!
