Adopt A Pet




Becoming a Donor

Donating is an immediate way to automatically participate in helping homeless animals in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. Your financial support is what keeps our doors open to thousands of animals each year. You can either mail or drop off your your tax-deductible donation, or donate on-line here.


Make a Memorial or Honorarium Gift

The best gift is one that gives back and is a great way to remember loved ones and celebrate special occasions while supporting pets in our care. Mail your honorarium gift for a friend, or memorial donation (in remembrance of a pet or person), or click here. Your gift will be recognized in our semi-annual newsletter to our 5,000+ readers.


Planned Giving/Estate Gifts

Many people leave funds to their favorite charities upon their death. The HSH can be a recipient of a long lasting legacy. The impact of planned gifts cannot be overstated. Estate gifts, large and small, have a tremendous impact on private shelters such as HSH. They allow us to expand existing services, improve facilities and launch new programs. We invite you to help us keep our vision alive by making a lasting contribution for the future benefit of pets in need. For more information about planned giving to HSH, please contact us at email: .
