Monthly Giving

Giving them a chance to love and let live

Save Lives Every Day

Taylor arrived as a very sick puppy. After months of diagnostics, a national shelter medicine specialist discovered she has a chronic respiratory disease similar to cystic fibrosis in humans. Because of the life-long care she needs that requires daily breathing treatments, it took us over a year to find her a forever home. Taylor is now thriving and loving life.

It costs approximately $636 per month, per animal, to provide basic care and shelter to more than 3,000 animals each year. The best way to help us cover the growing cost of daily care is by becoming a  Love & Let Live Supporter.

As one of the only open admission, truly no-kill shelters in the country, HSHC takes in the hardest to save, and often place, animals imaginable.  And in addition to Hamilton County’s animals, HSHC also rescues hundreds more each year at risk for euthanasia in other Indiana shelters.

Super seniors over the age of 10 years old,  bonded pairs who can’t bear to be separated, and animals with special medical needs or disabilities may wait several months for the right home.  And we believe they equally deserve to live, love, and be loved.

As the animals patiently wait for homes, we’ll make sure they get all the love and care they need.  Your monthly support makes sure they’ll never run out of time.

Please consider signing up today with an automatic, monthly donation.  Animals like Taylor are counting on it.

Love & Let Live FAQs

Why give monthly?

With your monthly gift, you provide reliable and steady funding. HSHC would not be able to operate as one of the only open admission, truly no-kill shelters in the country without your consistent and continued support.

What are the benefits of monthly giving?

Monthly donations come out of your bank account or credit card automatically, making giving hassle-free. Your gift is not only life saving, but also tax-deductible. No matter what you give, every dollar counts.

How will I receive information for tax purposes?

You will receive an initial email confirming your gift when you sign up as a Love & Let Live Supporter. We will only send you one acknowledgement letter at the beginning of the year summarizing the previous year’s automatic monthly donations for tax purposes.

What will I receive when I become a Love & Let Live supporter?

Supporters receive monthly newsletters showcasing shelter happenings and real examples of  lives you’ve helped save.  Love & Let Live supporters will also get breaking information before the public and other special perks throughout the year.

What if I need to discontinue my giving?

Once you set up your automatic gift, that monthly contribution will continue until you decide to stop the gift.

You may change or suspend your giving at any time by contacting your bank or credit card company through which you set up your online giving.

Love & Let Live

Every animal deserves a second chance. The chance to live, love and be loved is our promise to them…and to you. We invite you to be part of the solution and give back to the animals who give us so much.  After all, one of them may be your soulmate.
