Other Ways to Give

Because Giving is Doggone Good

Limitless Giving

The ways to help HSHC are limited only by your imagination. Memorial and honorarium tributes, a commemorative brick in the Memorial Plaza of our new facility, birthday fundraisers and donations drives are all wonderful ways to make a direct and immediate impact.

    A Meaningful Tribute

    Making a donation in memory of a loved one is both a meaningful tribute and a thoughtful gift to the shelter. When a memorial gift is made, we send a heartfelt acknowledgment to the family of the deceased to ensure they’re aware of your gift.

    Memorial envelopes are also available for those who have chosen HSHC donations in lieu of funeral flowers.  Please contact our Director of Development at developmentdirector@hamiltonhumane.com memorial envelopes.

    Honor Someone Special

    Make a donation in honor of a birthday, an anniversary, a graduation, or simply a BIG THANK YOU… and we will send an acknowledgment to your honoree to let them know how special you think they are.

    Commemorative Bricks

    Our Memorial Plaza at our new facility offers a beautiful canvas for you to honor the life of someone special with an engraved brick.

    We will continue adding bricks to our Memorial Plaza on a biannual basis. If you have questions, please email the Marketing Support Coordinator at marketingcoordinator@hamiltonhumane.com.

    Plaques for Cat Condos & Kennels

    Quality-engraved, naming plaques may also be purchased for individual cat condos, multiple cat condos, and dog kennels throughout our brand new, state-of-of-the-art facility.  These life-long naming opportunities will make your legacy a part of the brighter future we’ve built for the animals.

    Leave a Legacy

    Honor the life of someone special with a custom bench on HSHC’s property. For more information, contact Stacy Zehringer at marketingcoordinator@hamiltonhumane.com.

    Birthday Fundraisers

    Whether it’s a birthday fundraising campaign you set up on Facebook, or simply requesting donations for the shelter in lieu of birthday gifts, we are always honored when anyone chooses to support HSHC in celebration of their birthday.

    And when you do…you better believe we’ll be celebrating over here too!

    For help setting up a birthday fundraiser, or to arrange a photo op with the animals when you drop off your donation, please contact our Community Engagement Manager.

    Giving Through Community Partners

    We’re lucky to have several community organizations that allow you to designate HSHC as your preferred charity. Every time you shop, we receive a portion of sales from the partner… and the dollars really add up!

    If you would like to organize a donation drive with your co-workers to help the animals, please check out our Amazon Wish List!

Help Us Stay Well-Supplied

We rely on your donations to get through the day — every day. With your help, we can make the animals’ stay at the shelter cleaner, healthier, and happier. Please think of the animals the next time you go to the store.
