Last Chance to Make Your Year-End Gift!!


2020 has been a challenging year for all. The Covid pandemic, wildfires and personal hardships
have impacted each of us in so many ways.

And yet, you’ve still shown up for the animals!

We are blown away by your compassion and commitment. This year, thanks to your support of our lifesaving work, we’ve been able to place over 1,370 animals into loving homes.
Our hearts are full of gratitude for what we’ve been able to accomplish together.  

In a year where most of our fundraising events have been cancelled, your support has meant more for the animals than ever before. If you are in a position to give and haven’t yet made your donation, now is the perfect time to take advantage of the CARES act and other opportunities to make a difference for the animals who will need us in 2021.  

Thank you for being a part of the work we do – and for making all these happily-ever-afters possible! 


How You Can Help


It's the Perfect Time to Help the Animals!

The CARES Act makes this the perfect time to help even more animals – and save on your taxes!

The CARES Act was implemented by Congress to help our nation through the COVID crisis. A lesser-known benefit of the CARES Act may be helpful in your tax planning for 2020.

This provision of the CARES Act is set to expire on December 31st. For more information on how the CARES Act might help you help the animals please click the button below!


There are so many ways to help the animals. ❤️

We receive lots of questions about estate planning - including HSSC in your will or trust is a wonderful way to ensure our lifesaving work continues into the future.

Give to our generator fund today and your gift will be matched, dollar for dollar!

David & Mary Love have stepped up (way up!) to help:  They will match every donation up to a total of $25,000!

Thanks to loving, compassionate donors, we've made great headway in our campaign to raise money for an emergency generator that will power our Santa Rosa shelter's life-saving operations during emergencies and disasters.

We don't have far to go! To date we've raised almost $109,000 of the $125,000 we need to pay for our generator - that's just $16,000 short of our goal!

Please help us reach our goal and see the value of your kindness doubled!

First and foremost, we want you all to stay safe and healthy. We will continue to post updates about
our programs and services on our website
here and on our Facebook page as COVID response

Your ongoing support enables us to continue our lifesaving work for the animals during this challenging time.

Together we are providing protection, compassion, love and care. We are so grateful for this
connection which inspires so much hope.
