How you Can Help
DONATIONS
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:

High Desert Humane Society
