Giving Tuesday – November 28, 2023

“GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Join the movement and give – each Tuesday and every day – whether it’s some of your time, a donation, or the power of your voice in your local community.
It’s a simple idea: whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts, and everyone has something to contribute toward building the better world we all want to live in.” – GivingTuesday

If you are interested in giving on November 28th in celebration of Giving Tuesday, Spokane Humane Society would love your support!

Here are a few ways to GIVE:

Donate Pet Items: We take donations of new or used items including pet beds, blankets, towels, pet toys, pet food, and so much more!

View our full wish list HERE.

Donate to SHS STAR Fund: Special Treatment and Recovery (STAR) allows us to provide life-saving medical care to abused, neglected, injured and sick shelter animals. This past summer our clinic team saved the lives of seven kittens who had a severe contagious illness called Panleukopenia Virus “Panleuk,” thanks to the Star Fund. Read the whole story HERE.

Sponsor a shelter animal: Head over to our WEBSITE to view all adoptable animals and decide who you want to sponsor. Then, come into our shelter location to make your donation! The best animals to sponsor are our long-term animals who have been in shelter living for over 400 days. One animal in particular who needs your support is Dr. Pepper who has been searching for his forever family for over 700 days.

Donate to SHS: Donations can be made online on our WEBSITE. Your donations go towards supporting the shelter animals with comfy bedding, yummy food and treats, and lots of toys/enrichment activities; as well as upgrading our shelter to provide the best quality of life for our animals. We recently upgraded our Kennel 2, and the dogs are LOVING it!

Monthly giving: Giving monthly saves lives and provides a consistent impact to our shelter animals, plus you get tax benefits! Head over to our WEBSITE for more information.

Volunteer: We are always looking for more help at the shelter… from laundry or dishes to walking dogs or cuddling with the cats, there is always something that needs to get done. If you are interested in volunteering, click HERE.

Share our posts on social media: Spreading awareness is a great way to support SHS! Sharing our social media posts on your accounts, will bring new animal lovers to SHS, new adopters to our adoption locations, and more donations to help us continue saving lives!

Thank you for considering SHS for your GivingTuesday, and we are so glad to have supporters like you!
