of their well-known affiliate, the Clarke County Animal Shelter. In 2000, the Commonwealth of Virginia mandated certain standards for all county animal shelters. The Board of Supervisors at the time suggested that Supervisor Barbara Byrd put together a committee to study the feasibility of upgrading the shelter to

formed the Board of Clarke County Humane Foundation. Very quickly it became obvious that “upgrading” the existing shelter was impractical from both a construction and economic point of view; and they decided that they would try to raise funds to build a shelter that the CCHF would own, to be operated and staffed by the county. Becky, Nancy, and Peggy were friends of Mrs. Betty Casey and they were successful when they asked her to donate ten acres of land to the Foundation. The land was a great starting point to get the Foundation up and running; it is close to the Clarke County Park. People walking the two-mile trail that wraps around the park often stop by to visit. CCHF is open seven days a week.
