🐾 PayPal Donations - We understand this is an uncertain time but if you are able to donate monetarily, please use the PayPal link.
🐾 Amazon Wishlist - Our Amazon wishlist is updated frequently to reflect the items we need most. We are ALWAYS in need of non-clumping cat litter; we are also still in need of sensitive food for dogs (see wishlist). As a precaution, we will not be accepting in-person donations until further notice.
🐾 Amazon Smile - The shelter will receive 0.5% when you select San Gabriel Valley Humane Society as the charity of your choice through Amazon Smile. All products, prices, and shopping features remain the same at no extra cost to you. Every bit counts!
🐾 WoofTrax Walk For A Dog App - This is a FREE app for your phone that can be used to raise funds for the shelter just by walking your dog. The app counts your steps similar to a Fit Bit. Download in the App Store.
🐾 Ralph’s - Sign up for Ralphs Community Giving Program, and designate SGVHS (NPO 94102) as your donor organization. The shelter will receive a percentage of eligible purchases every time you use your Ralph’s card!
🐾Social Media - Please share, share, share! We are relying on social media now more than ever to bring our adoptable animals to the attention of their future furever families. Follow us on Instagram @sgvhumanesociety and please subscribe to our YouTube channel, SGV Humane Society.
🐾Donate a Vehicle - Donating your car, truck, van, SUV, boat, motorcycle, ATV, RV, trailer or airplane has never been easier! Simply visit https://careasy.org/nonprofit/San-Gabriel-Valley-Humane-Society to donate, or call CARS (Charitable Adult Rides and Services) at 877-721-7387 and specify your donation for San Gabriel Valley Humane Society.
Found a Healthy Cat or Kittens that Live outside?
Please don't kitten-nap: Watch and wait!
🐾 In order to comply with the #SaferAtHome directives, we have temporarily suspended elective surgeries, which includes spay and neuter and TNR. Due to this situation, we will not be accepting cats/kittens that live outside, unless they are SICK or INJURED.
🐾 FIND A LITTER: BE A SITTER! Mother cats often leave kittens for hours at a time, and will likely return soon. The only time to interfere is when you are sure the kittens are ORPHANED (left alone for over 8 hours), INJURED or ILL, and in that case, please give us a call at (626) 286-1159.
🐾 If you think kittens have been abandoned, you can help support us by raising them in your home!
For more information on caring for kittens, visit the Kitten Lady web site at: https://www.kittenlady.org/webinar
All events are postponed until further notice, we thank you for your support!
