From ANIMAL PEOPLE, May 1997:

The Connecticut Humane Society in
late March announced it will replace the 50-
year-old animal health clinic at its Newington
headquarters with a new $1 million facility to be
built on the site of the CHS pet cemetery, also
about 50 years old, not used in 10 years according
to CHS president Richard Johnston, and
occupying the only buildable space left on the
CHS grounds. About 3,000 pet graves will be
moved to two new plots. Remains of animals
whose owners can’t be located––at least a third
of the total, Johnston indicated––may be placed
in a mass grave. The CHS filing of IRS Form
990 for fiscal year 1995 reportedly showed
assets of $20.7 million, income of $3.2 million,
program costs of $2 million, management costs
of $534,346, and two salaries over $50,000:
Johnston, at $87,834, and executive director
Gus Helberg, $56,276.
