Concern for Animal Welfare Brings the Cables to CHS
Passionate is the best way to describe how Peter Cable and his wife, Jane, feel about animal welfare. For the past four years, Peter, a retired physicist, has volunteered at CHS’ Waterford location. His wife, Jane, a prominent attorney, is committed to preventing animal cruelty.
Peter’s dedication and understanding of animal welfare made him a top candidate when CHS was recruiting new board members in 2015. Given his firsthand experience with the organization, Peter was happy to lend his knowledge and experience to the board.
When asked why people should support the organization, they said that CHS is leading the charge to promote animal welfare in Connecticut.
“Many people don’t realize that CT Humane provides pro bono medical support to pets at municipal animal control facilities and rescue organizations throughout the state,” Peter says. In 2015, more than 200 animal welfare professionals received support from CHS to rehome pets, connect sick pets with critical medical care, and deliver safe, humane animal care.
The couple also expressed appreciation for the work CHS does to help pet owners who lack the resources to care for their pets. They highlighted the organization’s Pet Food Pantry, Special Assistance Fund and public veterinary clinic.
“Just as it is vital for all families to have access to health care, it is essential that their pets have available health care, as well,” Peter says. “The recent initiative to provide free wellness clinics for pets in New London County is just one way the Connecticut Humane Society is changing the landscape of how communities address pet care.”
When making plans for their legacy, the couple said remembering CHS was a logical fit. “We want to do all we can to make a lasting difference,” Jane says.
