National Animal Shelter Week

National Animal
Shelter Week

One gift = 3X the impact

Your love can change everything for animals and their people

This week, November 13-19, your gift will be tripled, up to $50,000, thanks to a generous match from the Improving Chances Foundation. That means triple the lifesaving vet care, triple the resources for community pets and the people who love them, and triple the second chances for animals in need.

What is National Animal Shelter Week?

Established in 1996 by the Humane Society of the United States, National Animal Shelter Week is a celebration of animal shelters and the staff who work tirelessly to protect animals and provide support and resources for the people who love them. 

The event is celebrated annually by animal organizations nationwide – including Animal Humane Society. This week-long event plays a crucial role in the work we’re able to do year after year, and that’s in large part thanks to you: our animal-loving community. 

AHS wouldn’t be able to provide the critical services that it does without your support. Thanks to generous donations in previous years’ National Animal Shelter Week, more animals have found loving, safe homes, more pets and their families have had access to high-quality, low-cost vet care, and more resources have been provided to community members in need.

This year, you can triple your impact for animals

Thanks to this year’s generous match, every dollar you donate this week means TRIPLE the impact for animals in need. What does that look like in practice? 

  • $5 becomes $15, providing tasty treats for shelter animals
  • $10 becomes $30, administering critical vaccines to two animals
  • $25 becomes $75, transporting one dog to safety from a partner shelter
  • $100 becomes $300, funding surgery for a local pet to keep them in their home

AHS Vet Center provided lifesaving surgery at a fraction of the cost

Early one morning, Animal Humane Society received an urgent call about a sick dog who needed our immediate help.

But this call wasn’t about a homeless dog or an animal looking for a second chance. This call was about Luna, a local family’s beloved three-year-old black lab. 

Learn how AHS provided lifesaving, low-cost vet care for Luna, saving her pet parents thousands of dollars and keeping their happy family together -- all made possible by generous donations from our animal-loving community.
