Holiday Giving

The animals are always on the nice list

Make a Gift to the Animals

Making a cash gift for the holidays supports our lifesaving programs and makes a difference for every pet who needs our help. Your donation provides medical care, behavior support, shelter from abuse and neglect, helps pets find loving homes, and ensures we will be here for animals in their time of need. Whether it's a one-time donation or a recurring monthly gift, your contribution makes our work possible. 


Shelter Beds

Give the gift of comfort to dogs staying at HSSW. High-quality, durable beds help us provide a comfortable spot for naps while dogs wait to be adopted. Click the link below to purchase a dog bed directly from our wish list. Your purchase will be shipped directly to HSSW.

Honorary Gifts

Not sure what to get the animal lover on your list? We’ve got just the thing: an honorary gift that makes a difference for the animals. You don't need to stress about shipping or worry that the size won't be right - this is the easiest shopping you'll do this season.

An honorary gift is more than just a warm, fuzzy feeling for the holidays. It ensures animals at HSSW find new homes and provides critical funding for our lifesaving work.

Food and Supplies

If a cash donation doesn't work for you, gifts of food and supplies are a great way to make the holidays merry and bright for the animals. You can shop locally, supporting any number of pet stores in our community and drop off your donation, or purchase from our Amazon Wish List and have your donation shipped directly to HSSW. Click below to find a list of our most-needed items and more information.

Gifts of Stock

A gift of stock could be right for you if you own publicly-traded securities that you have owned for at least one year. These securities may sometimes provide you with little or no income, but provide a great benefit to the animals of HSSW. Gifting stock avoids federal capital gains tax and most donors can also claim an income tax deduction for the stock's full market value.
