Annual Gifts

Annuals gifts are the cornerstone of Liberty Humane Society. These fits pay for the shelter and medical care of the thousands of abandoned and homeless animals that come through our door each year. Please know that ALL gifts, no matter the amount, enable Liberty Humane Society's staff and volunteers to care for and love the animals that you like to, but perhaps cannot because you already have pets or simply cannot accommodate one at his time. Please consider making an annual gift in one of the below amounts:

$500 will help cover medical costs for sick or injured animals

$250 will help cover the costs to spay/neuter and to care for an animal for one month

$100 will help cover costs for our numerous community outreach programs

$50 will help cover costs to purchase spacious cat crates and bedding

$Other will help cover costs for warm blankets and fuzzy toys!

Leadership Gifts

Leadership gifts enable Liberty Humane Society to enhance our facility and programs and purchase items outside of our annual budget. These items include such things as large outdoor dog runs and spacious exercise pens. Leadership gifts are also critical in keeping up with the increasing number of dogs and cats that come through our door in need of shelter and placement. Please consider making a Leadership Gift in one of the below amounts:

$5,000 will provide for a cat socialization area

$2,500 will provide for a dog run

$1,500 will provide for an indoor dog cage

$500 will provide for a cat cage

By joining the Caregivers Program, you'll receive the satisfaction and good feeling of supporting Liberty Humane Society without having to initiate a contribution each time.

Gift in Kind Program

Consider purchasing extra dog or cat items next time you are at the grocery store and receive a tax write off for your donation. The shelter is always in need of items such as kitty litter, bleach, paper towels, detergent, canned cat food, and toys for our animals during their stay at the shelter.

Or, donate an item or gift certificate that we can raffle off at one of our upcoming events. This is a great program for businesses and corporations to market their products and services to our audience. In return, you will receive a tax receipt letter establishing the full value of the item donated. A gift in kind donation enables you to receive a valuable tax write off while marketing your product or service - all this while supporting our needy animals!

Matching Gifts Program

A large number of corporations will double the value of your donation through their Matching Gift Program. Simply check with your company's (or that of your spouse) human resources department to see if your gift is eligible for a match. If so, they will provide you with a form to complete and send to the shelter. It is a quick and easy way to double your donation!
