About Donations

Our organization exists to provide humane care for the thousands of homeless animals in our community and to support the citizens with our services. Money to operate the Humane Society and care for these animals comes solely from public donations and grants, so any contribution you can make is needed and appreciated.  We have added a few key donation options so that you can better choose how you would like to support the animals of the Humane Society.  Each of these are detailed below, and public income and expense reports will be available for each category.  NO MONEY will be used for animal control services.  We have contracts with the City and County Governments which cover these expenses.  All money donated goes directly to the care of the animals and the operation of the Humane Society of Henderson County.  Daily bookkeeping is conducted by an Accountant and annual financials are audited by an outside Accounting firm for accuracy.  We are also now listed as a GuideStar Exchange Partner in Trust. 

General Funds Donation

Estimated Annual Need: $60,000.  This donation option helps to cover all types of expenses for the Humane Society, including all animal care expense, equipment repair or replacement, building maintenance, administrative, utilities, fundraising expenses, etc.

Animal Welfare

  
Estimated Annual Need: $45,000.  This donation option restricts donated money to be used specifically for the daily care, enrichment, and medical support of the animals in our facility.  These expenses may include: vaccinations, medical supplies, veterinary care, food, cat litter, toys, bedding, and any other direct need of our animals. We cared for nearly 2400 animals in 2010, each staying an average of 11 days.

Spay/Neuter Initiative

  
Estimated Annual Need: $40,000.  Combating the pet overpopulation problem in Henderson County is one of our core missions.  Money donated to this option is used for the direct costs associated with the spay/neuter surgeries of our animals prior to adoption.  This estimate is based on 800-1000 surgeries per year.  We had 724 surgeries in 2010.

Facilities and Program Development

  
Estimated Annual Need: $20,000.  This option is designed to build resources for future capital projects, new equipment, and public services such as community education.

Intake Kennel Addition - $12,000 Budget

We have an average intake of 5 new dogs per day, every day.  We are in desperate need of adding additional kennel runs to the back room of the shelter to help hold them while we can either wait for their stray hold period to expire, or evaluate for possible disease, before moving them up to the adoption area.  We also need a few extra kennel runs to hold dogs while they are treated for medical issues so that can be isolated from other animals and can have a more quiet area to rest.

Computer and Software Upgrades- $5,000 Budget

We currently use 6 computers at the shelter, plus one laptop for our bookkeeper. Each of the shelter computers have been donated and are several years old. We have had continued reliability problems with these computers, as well has problems with the speed of operation to perform the basic daily data entry tasks by the staff and lack of basic business software such as Microsoft Office. We also do not have any way of doing data backups or providing a basic networked office environment. We have people in our organization with expertise in designing, installing, and maintaining office networks and computer systems, but we need equipment to make this work. This budget includes 6 new desktop computers, 2 network-ready laser printers, new software for each computer and a network backup storage device.
