Monthly Giving

Become a Love & Let Live Donor

It costs approximately $657 per month, per animal, to provide basic care and shelter to nearly 4,000 animals each year. The best way to help us cover the growing cost of daily care is by becoming a Love & Let Live monthly donor. 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.

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. We believe they equally deserve to live, love and be loved. Your monthly gift ensures they’ll never run out of time.

From Adopter to Monthly Donor

Read Lucy's Story

Lucy adopted Mrs. Nala, a senior in desperate need of a loving home, from HSHC in July of 2023. Now she helps other animals find their forever homes by contributing to their care as a Love & Let Live monthly donor.

While not every shelter would’ve taken a chance on an 11-year-old Pit Bull like Mrs. Nala, the support of our monthly donors made it possible for us to care for her until she found Lucy.

  • “I love the animals, they have always been near and dear to my heart! I’m not able to volunteer, but I wanted to do something.”

  • “She is so sweet. We loved celebrating her birthday, taking her out for walks, taking her to pet stores. We love how she tries to talk to us when she’s excited! We couldn’t have asked for a better dog."

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.
