The animals need you

Food and medical care cost money, and the animals’ lives depend on it. Whether you’re an individual fundraising on Facebook, or a business sponsoring an HSHV event, we really appreciate your help!

Individual Fundraising

  • -Create a Facebook Fundraiser to honor your birthday, anniversary, or everyday desire to help animals! Get creative: send homemade thank-you cards for a donation of $15+, share the story of the animal who inspires you to fundraise, make a donation yourself and ask friends to match it, etc.! You can also post this dog video or this cat video to show your friends the importance of donating.
  • Participate in Walk & Wag and Run, our annual event held each May.
  • Are you a gamer? Host a livestream fundraiser on Twitch! Contact for a custom donation link to give your followers.
  • Hold a garage sale and donate the proceeds to HSHV.

Start your own fundraiser

Whether it’s your birthday, anniversary of a special happening, or just your everyday desire to help animals, you can create an online fundraising page! It’s easy; we’ll even start you off with a template that you can customize with your goal and share with your friends and family so that they can conveniently donate online.

In lieu of Favors

Do you have a wedding or party coming up? Instead of giving your guests almonds, how about donating to HSHV? We’re happy to create your wedding favor cards!

We ask that the donation amount be what you would have spent on favors for your guest. We have a minimum donation amount of $150.

Though you can have any message you like, our standard message is:

Dear Friends:

Thank you for sharing in our joyous day! In lieu of favors, we have made a donation to the Humane Society of Huron Valley in your name so that homeless pets will be cared for until they find their new homes.
