Become a Donor. Save a Life

The Women’s Humane Society bears a great honor, but even greater responsibility as America’s First Animal Shelter. Since 1869, we have remained steadfast in our commitment to protecting the interests of all animals, and to ensuring their humane and ethical treatment within and beyond our shelter walls.

The Women’s Humane Society receives no federal, state or local government funding. The safe shelter and compassionate care we have provided to countless numbers of unwanted, abused and homeless animals over the past 150 years has been possible only through the generosity of donors like you.

Your gift makes possible second chances. Your gift provides happy homes and forever families. Your gift saves lives.

Gifts made to the Women’s Humane Society are fully tax-deductible. Supporters have the option of making a one-time donation, or contributing through monthly installments.

Donate now safely and securely through our website, or by printing, completing and returning the attached Form with your gift. Donations can also be made by phone through our Development Office at 215.942.6825.

Remember that you can double or even triple the impact of your gift by taking advantage of your company’s Matching Gifts Program. Through matching gifts, participating companies match their current and retired employees’ charitable contributions dollar for dollar. The appropriate guidelines and forms can be obtained through your employer.

The Women’s Humane Society also accepts Gifts of Stock. Donations of securities not only benefit nonprofit recipients, but prove economically practical for the donor. By donating stock that has increased in value since its purchase, you can claim a charitable deduction for its appreciated value, while at the same time avoiding capital gains taxes. If you are interested in making a gift of stock, please contact us at 215.942.6823 or, and we’ll help you take care of the details.
