4th Annual Cruising For Canines "Country Style!"
A fun event aboard the Dutch Apple Cruises
5:00pm - 8:00pm
(boarding is promptly at 4:30 PM)

Join us once again on the Dutch Apple Cruise ship for a 3 hour cruise (yes, we said it) on the beautiful Hudson River, complete with yummy food, cash bar, mingling and most of all, getting together to help raise funds and awareness for Capital District Humane Association, a 100% volunteer 503C, no kill rescue group all working hard to save pets lives and give them lots of love.

100% of your donation will be used to help
the Capital District Humane Association’s dog program. Thank you.


A Note From Our Founder & President:

Each year we work hard as an organization that is 100% volunteer, and 100% no kill, to save as many pets lives as we possibly can, and that still is not enough. Yet, we continue, and with the help of many great friends, foster homes, media partners, and fundraising efforts, we are able to heal, feed, house, and place thousands of dogs, cats, and a few exotics, in loving homes. Many of these animals are medically challenged, old, hungry, lonely and in some sad cases, abused. Some of them have to be carried, some whisked away for an emergency vet check up or surgery, and a few to a kennel, and although there are a few tragic stories each year, we remain optimistic and are happy to share that most are placed in loving homes. We can’t do it without all of your love and support and we thank you for it. Join us as volunteers, follow us on facebook, help spread the word. It all counts. Remember, there is no payroll at CDHA, it ALL goes to the animals.

Jennifer Politis,
Pack Leader Capital District Humane Association
A 100% Volunteer No Kill Rescue for over 25 years
