A Heartfelt Tribute

Gifts in Memory or Honor of Your Loved One

Here for all of life's moments

Your pets are there for you through thick and thin. They experience all of life’s big and little moments right alongside you. Whether you are celebrating a happy occasion, or mourning the loss of a loved one, HSHC is here for you. What better way to honor the pet or animal lover in your life than by giving back to the animals that need us the most?

    Share Your Condolences

    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 message to the family of the deceased to notify them of your gift.

    Memorial envelopes are also available for those who have chosen HSHC donations in lieu of funeral flowers. If you have questions, please contact our Director of Development at developmentdirector@hamiltonhumane.com.

    Give the Gift of Love

    Looking for a unique and meaningful gift idea? Show your appreciation or celebrate a special occasion by donating in honor of someone special. Birthdays, holidays and adoption anniversaries are wonderful opportunities to celebrate your honoree’s love of animals by donating to HSHC in their name.

    We will mail a handwritten card to your loved one featuring your personalized message and a polaroid of an adoptable animal.

    Start a Birthday Fundraiser

    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 at communityengagement@hamiltonhumane.com.

Love & Let Live

Every animal deserves a second chance at love — and life. We invite you to be part of the solution and give back to the animals who give us so much.
