Opportunities for Giving

Valley Humane Society is a private, non-profit animal welfare organization that receives no government funds, tax dollars, or money from national humane organizations. Our programs and services are made available through the generosity of people like you.

We invite you to help us fulfill our mission by making a donation or participating in the following fundraisers:

United Way

Many individuals and companies participate in the United Way’s annual giving campaign. You may designate your United Way gift for Valley Humane Society by specifying our agency number, #765180. To donate on-line through United Way, please visit www.unitedway.org.

Memorial/Honorarium Donation

Give a gift in memory of any two or four-legged loved one, or in honor of any person, pet or special event in your life. Announcement of your gift will be made to the designated recipient and your message will appear on our special Tributes page. Make a memorial or honorarium donation through Network for Good.

Workplace Giving Campaigns

Does your employer conduct an annual giving campaign to encourage employees in their charitable giving? Valley Humane Society would love to participate! Talk to your employer’s human resources or accounting department and let us know what we can do to become one of your preferred charities.

Employer Gift Matching

Companies all over the Bay Area recognize the value of giving back to their community. Check with your employer’s human resources or accounting department to see if they offer a gift matching program to double your charitable contribution. Most companies provide a form to be sent with your donation and returned by Valley Humane Society.

Building Fund

Our founding volunteers dreamed of a permanent home for Valley Humane Society. In addition to new programs and services designed to fulfill our mission, our future plans include building a new state-of-the-art facility for the people and animals of the Tri-Valley. A bigger building means more room to save neglected and orphaned animals until they find their forever homes. Your support will help make this dream a reality. Make a donation to the Building Fund through Network for Good.

Spare Change Banks

Drop some spare change into our Spare Change Banks located at participating retailers around the Tri-Valley area. Every penny goes towards helping take care of cats and dogs waiting for their forever homes! For a list of retailers or if you know of a retailer who would like a bank at their location, please call us at (925) 426-8656 or come see us at 3670 Nevada Street in Pleasanton.

Ink Cartridge Recycling

Save ’em up and bring ’em in, but don’t throw away your empty ink cartridges! Valley Humane Society earns money for each cartridge recycled through our program. Simply bring your used cartridges to Valley Humane Society any time Tuesday through Saturday, 11:00 am – 5:00 pm. Most brands are accepted.

Vehicle Donation

Used vehicles equal a significant donation to Valley Humane Society. Vehicles do not need to be operational, but they must be complete (i.e. the engine is not missing, etc.). We receive a portion of the resale of all donated vehicles. You may designate your vehicle for Valley Humane Society by visiting www.donateacar.com.Select our charity under “Humane Society, Valley.”
