Technical Difficulties

Oh No! We are experiencing some intermittent technical difficulties with our computer system, which is causing some irregularities on our adoptions webpages. We are working hard to resolve this issue, but as a result, adoption times may be slower than normal over the next few days. We thank all you all in advance for your understanding!

CHS Alum, Cash

Just wanted to give you an update on Cash, who came home with us in September last year. He has settled in nicely at our home. He runs about 5 km everyday and has grown bigger and stronger because of it. He is so smart and everyone who meets him tells us how lucky we are to have him! And we agree and think that Cash likes having us as his people!!
