Honorary Gifts

The perfect gift for the animal lover in your life

Honorary Gifts

Looking for a gift for the animal lover on your list? Something special that always fits and never goes out of style? We’ve got just the thing: an honorary gift that makes a difference for the animals. Your gift in honor of a loved one is more than just a warm, fuzzy feeling, it helps ensure the animals at HSSW find new homes and provides critical funding for our lifesaving work.

Looking for a permanent representation of your gift? A brick or paver could be a great way to honor that special someone.

Memorial Gifts

Memorial gifts are a meaningful way to pay tribute to those we have lost. If you would like to establish memorial gifts in honor of a loved one, please direct individuals to make a gift online at hssw.org/dedication or via check payable to:

Humane Society for Southwest Washington
1100 NE 192nd Ave
Vancouver, WA 98684

If you would like to notify the family of these donations, our team is happy to assist. To ensure notification, please email us at [email protected]. and include the name of the individual who has passed and their family's contact information

Bricks and Pavers

The walk leading up to our front door is paved with dedications. Bricks and pavers line the walk with messages in honor of animal lovers and beloved pets - it's like the HSSW walk of fame. And every day, adopted pets cross the bricks on their way to their happy new homes.

A brick or paver is a lasting tribute in honor of someone special, and the proceeds support our lifesaving work with the animals. Many engraving options are available to ensure your special message makes an impact.
