Ways to Give

Every gift, large or small, helps us save a life.
We can’t do it without you.

Without our donors, the animals would be lost. Victoria Humane Society accepts donations in many forms, primarily through individual gifts, estate plans, and corporate giving. Our monthly sustaining donor program is another critical component of our success. Every gift counts. Thank you.

Monthly Giving

Monthly donations sustain our ongoing work to rescue, foster, rehabilitate, and rehome animals. Whether we are funding surgery for an injured dog in our care, or arranging transportation for litters of rescued puppies or kittens from remote communities, the Victoria Humane Society has a major financial load to bear that is not covered by simple adoption fees. If you would like to become a Monthly Donor to Victoria Humane Society, learn more here.

Corporate Gifts

Every year Victoria Humane Society counts on the support of local businesses and corporations for sponsorship of fundraising events and for corporate donations. Becoming a corporate partner of VHS is a great way to show your customers what you stand for and to forge new and strong relationships in your community.

Legacy Gifts

Legacy to Victoria Humane Society is a meaningful way to express your passion for animal welfare. In choosing how to leave your legacy gift, we encourage you to speak to us and a professional advisor to determine which option is best for you and your family.

  • Wills: One of the most popular ways to give, we can show you a variety of ways to make a legacy gift through your will.
  • Publicly Traded Securities: Donate your publicly traded securities and eliminate the taxes payable on any capital gain.
  • Life Insurance: Legacy gifts of life insurance enable donors to make significant gifts at a manageable cost.
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts: A trust legacy gift can generate income and reduce taxes in your lifetime and leave a lasting gift to your community.

Gifts of Property

We welcome other gifts in a variety of forms, including real estate, personal property, or retirement plan accumulations, for example.

You are the lifeblood of our work on behalf of animals.

You are the lifeblood of our work on behalf of animals.

As a non-profit organization, the Victoria Humane Society depends entirely on donations from kind-hearted people like you. Every month, we rescue literally dozens of dogs and cats, and sometimes other small animals, many from horrific circumstances such as neglect, starvation and abuse. The associated costs of rescue are significant, from arranging transportation for the animals out of remote communities and into our care, to emergency medical bills to save animals lives, to spay and neuter costs, vaccinations, hospitalizations, medications and on-going food costs and incidentals. Monthly and one-time donors are literally our most critical form of support. We thank you for donating what you can today.
