Help support the Humane Society. 

General Donation


General donation - this may be a one time donation or monthly. See Paypal for instructions of recurring donations. 

Honor a special pet or a special human

For those that would like to honor or remember a special person or animal in their lives. Keep their memory alive and honor them with a special donation to the shelter.

Memorial Gifts


Frequently people designate the SHS to receive donations in memory of a lost loved one.

When we receive such memorial donations we thank the donor AND notify the family of the
decedent of the donation.  
It is very helpful for us if donors would include the name and address of the family member to whom they wish the acknowledgement to go.  That way we are able to notify the correct person(s). 

Princess Fund


This fund allows us to treat those that have medical bill above the normal expenses. 


Other ways to help

There are so many ways YOU can help!

Sometimes we just don’t have the money to give much to our favorite charities, even though we really do want to help.  So how else can we help?

  • How about donating gently used items to Wag Sales, our indoor tag sale?  All the money raised goes into

the care and feeding of the shelter animals.


  • Did you know you can bring your redeemable bottles and cans to Springfield Redemption Center at 

6 Chester Road in Springfield and ask that the money be donated to us?  They send us a check!  Those nickels really do add up!


  • When you’re doing your shopping, why not pick up an extra roll of paper towels or a bottle of bleach or dish detergent?  We go through a LOT of cleaning supplies every week here!


  • Do you save plastic bags from grocery shopping?  We could really use them for our dog walkers to pick up…well, you know!


  • And speaking of bags – we use empty 50-pound wood pellet bags as trash bags when we clean the rooms!  They’re strong, they hold a lot, and they’re waterproof!


  • Do you like to shop online?  If you shop on Amazon, try using AmazonSmile instead – the same prices, the same everything, but you can choose a charity for Amazon to donate a portion of your sale too!  Hint: Choose your favorite animal shelter with the initials SHS!  


  • You can also shop at where you’ll earn money and points back on your purchases, and we’ll get paid too!  And don’t worry, all your favorite stores are here!


  • And if you shop on check out our wishlist on Chewy Gives Back!  


  • Do you have an extra room in your home, and extra room in your heart too?  Why not consider becoming a foster home!  Short term, or long term, we provide all the food, medical care, and support you need.  


  • Do you like gardening?  We have some beautiful gardens planted by the Springfield Garden Club many years ago that could really use some weeding and overall sprucing up!  Why not bring your green thumb down to the shelter?


  • Do you have a favorite hobby?  Special talent?  Some type of skill?  If so, we can find a way for you to help the animals by doing what you enjoy!  Contact Anne at and let her know you’d like to help!
