What does my donation help fund? Your donation will be used in the manner you choose.  We have multiple options available on our  Donate  page.  We rely solely on donations from private supporters to care for thousands of needy dogs and cats each year.

Where does HSHC receive its funding? As a private, non-profit organization, HSHC receives no state or federal funding from any entity for Humane Society services and relies upon the support of private individuals, organizations and corporations to continue our mission.  We do have a contract with the City and County specifically for animal control services only.
