Hinsdale Humane Society ~ SAVE OUR SHELTER!

Tax deductible

Hinsdale Humane Society (HHS) is in dire need of financial help and is trying to raise money to keep its doors open and programs running. HHS not only takes in stray animals, medically treats them if needed and gets them ready for adoption, but they also have many excellent community outreach programs that help our community. There are so many outreach programs, including programs for veterans, humane education, pet therapy for those in need, low-cost spay & neuter clinics, low-cost vaccine clinics, and many more. The loss of Hinsdale Humane Society in our community would be devastating.

See below for the message from the Hinsdale Humane Society Board of Directors:

An Urgent Message from Our Board of Directors and Staff:
Because we receive no government funding and have no endowments, we rely overwhelmingly on donations from businesses, supporters and friends like you to keep our doors open. Over the past year, donations to us have substantially diminished, and we are experiencing severe financial difficulty.

We urgently need your help.

Animal welfare is in crisis and HHS is at the epicenter. During COVID, an estimated 3 million spay/neuter surgeries did not occur. Litters of puppies and kittens are showing up on our doorstep daily. We are over capacity and cannot continue to save lives and carry on without your donations.

It’s true, our larger facility allows us to help more than 1600 animals annually (up from 1000 at our old, smaller shelter). It allows us to provide robust community programming and resources that help others. It also enables us to have an incredible veterinarian on staff — Dr. Kristin Tvrdik. She alone performs 3,000 spay/neuters annually for HHS and local shelters in need. But, all of this comes at a high cost.

Adoption fees and our community programming and services revenue don’t come close to covering the expense of caring for all of the animals that need us. We have cut our costs and are running as lean as possible, but are unable to keep up with all that is coming at us.

HHS and the communities we serve need your help now more than ever. Please donate today.

You can make a difference in the lives of the people and pets we support. Any size donation will help.

Be a part of the vital community that contributes to our “S.O.S. Save Our Shelter” campaign. Recognition and naming opportunities are available. Please contact our Executive Director, Jacki Rossi at [email redacted] or at [phone redacted] x12.

With Sincere Appreciation,

The Entire Board of Directors and Staff at Hinsdale Humane Society

“S.O.S. Save Our Shelter”
We are all stronger together and success lies in our shared purpose.
