Monthly Giving

Become a Love & Let Live Donor

We can't do it without you

It costs approximately $672 per month, per animal, to provide basic care and shelter to more than 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 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.  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.

Every Dollar Counts
