Donate to C.H.A.I.N.
The fact remains that we cannot do what we do without your help. Every bit of energy, time, and financial support you give us allows us to make life better for one more animal, allows one more animal to get the medical treatment it needs, fills one more hungry tummy, and brings one more to safety. Thank you from all of us at Ledyard C.H.A.I.N, Ledyard Animal Control, and the many animals who now have a better tomorrow.

EVERY PENNY MAKES
Donate to One of Our Projects
1. The Oliver Project
A fundraising effort by Ledyard C.H.A.I.N. to raise funds for the Ledyard Animal Control to go towards the spay and neuter of feral cats within our community. All monies donated to this project will be used solely to cover the costs to spay/neuter, to buy humane traps, and to get needed materials for build shelters and feeding stations to protect the cats from inclement weather. It won’t happen overnight and It will be expensive. But the positive effect it will have on our community will be priceless.
2. Fixed 4 Life Fund
Contributions to this fund are used spay and neuter
pets at the Ledyard Animal Control to help them be more appealing to prospective adopters so they can find their forever home quickly and to also prevent the chance of unwanted litters.
3. Emergency Medical Fund
Sometimes pets arrive at the shelter sick or injured. To help these pets get well so they can find their forever homes faster, we will help with medical costs that might be more than the shelter can bear.
