There are many options for donating to the Humane Society of South Central Michigan. We’ve put together a list of opportunities for you to consider. Your financial contribution makes it possible for our agency to change the lives of animals in our community. HSSCM does not hold the City or County animal control contracts, nor do we receive any governmental or tax dollar support. Our work is made possible by generous people who seek to make a difference in the lives of companion animals. No donation is too small to make a difference!

To make a credit card payment over the phone, please call our Finance Director, at 269.963.1796 ext. 19 any time of the day or night. Leave your information on her secure voicemail and we will process the payment the next business day.

Memorial Brick Path
Engraved bricks will create a path in our rainbow memorial garden. All donations are tax deductible. Click here to download an order form that can be printed and mailed to the Humane Society. The cost for a memorial brick is $125.
Memorial Wall Tiles
Memorial wall tiles may be purchased for $250. We can use a black and white photo in most cases, as long as it has clearly defined images, handwriting (either supplied or font), or a black and white line drawing. We need a minimum of six tile orders before we can have the tiles fired, so it may take some time to get yours up on the wall. Call 269.963.1796, ext. 19 to purchase a memorial tile.
Yearly Kennel Sponsorships
These high-quality, full-color signs, designed and created by Jerry Ure from Signs N Designs, are adhered to our inside dog kennels, just above the dog’s head-height where everyone who visits the dogs will see. Additionally, HSSCM staff members will send you monthly photos and stories about the dog currently in your kennel, and let you know when that dog has been adopted! For businesses that purchase a kennel sponsorship, we can even arrange to bring a program on the shelter itself, along with a currently-available shelter dog, to your facility to visit with your staff members. Kennels are sponsored annually for $1,000.
Bryan Thomas Memorial Fund
The Bryan Thomas Memorial Fund provides medical and surgical care for sick or wounded animals at the sanctuary. On an average, 50 animals annually are treated for anything from fractures to heartworms. Without this program, the HSSCM would not be able to treat at-risk animals that arrive with medical needs.
