The Humane Society is wholly dependent on contributions from the public and our fund-raising activites for income. The Animal Shelter is funded by contracts with the city and county to perform animal-control functions. Therefore, we are grateful to be in the thoughts of so many people who are concerned about animals. Click on the newsletter to see a recent list of our contributors. Although we receive some large single donations, perhaps our more typical contributor is one who sends a few dollars on a regular basis. The Humane Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. To make a cash donation, send a check payable to:

Our work is only possible because of our faithful and devoted volunteers. More than 250 people lend their time, energy, and talents to keep this facility operating. A variety of work is available: You can walk dogs, help with the kennel cleaning, play with cats, pull weeds, pick up trash, bathe a dog, or even help bag aluminum cans for recycling. Call or come out to see the many ways you might help to keep us going.
