Become a Hero

Join our Heroes Now & Forever

Joining our Heroes Now and Forever campaign is one of the best ways you can help save the lives of homeless pets. As a Hero, you will join a group of compassionate people who have each contributed $1,000 or more to help our community’s homeless pets.


Your $1,000 donation can be made all at once or can be divided into two installments of $500 or four installments of $250.

Hero and Super Hero gifts range anywhere from $1,000-$10,000. Super Hero gifts will receive more prominent placement on our donor recognition wall. If you would like to set up a payment plan for a gift larger than $1,000, please contact Dale Lawrence at 530-582-2462 or Stephanie Nistler at 530-582-2462.

Very Special Opportunity Offered to Heroes

Those becoming “hero” contributors between July 1 and the fall deadline in late October will have an opportunity to win “Aspens,” an original oil painting by local artist Andrew Bolam, valued at $4,000. Annie Hooker will be contributing two monochromatic vintage paintings, celebrating Truckee’s early ski beginnings, "Learning to Ski" and "Truckee, CA 1929" which will be awarded to a second contributor.


The Campaign: The Heroes campaign was initially designed to help fund a portion of the construction of our beautiful new shelter. It has evolved into a campaign that will help us continue to provide critical sheltering services to the homeless pets in and around our community.

A Unique and Special Gift: Giving a gift in honor or memory of a person or pet is an incredibly generous way to show your admiration and love for them. There are two simple ways to do this:

In Honor: Honoring someone who loves animals by giving a gift that will help save them is a wonderful choice. This donation could be given in honor of a recent graduate, a birthday, and anniversary, etc. Their name will forever be placed on our recognition piece in the main lobby of our beautiful shelter.

In Memory: You can make a Hero donation in memory of an important person or pet that has touched your life in some way. Their name will be listed on our donor recognition piece in the lobby of our shelter for many years to come.

How to Join: It’s easy to join the campaign by following one of the three simple steps:

  • Click on one of the “donate now” buttons on this page to pay with a credit card via our secured PayPal page. Visa, MasterCard and American Express are accepted
  • Call either Dale or Stephanie (numbers listed below) to use a credit card over the phone
  • Send a check made out to the Humane Society of Truckee Tahoe to PO Box 9041, Truckee, CA 96162
  • Come by our new shelter located at 10961 Stevens Lane, Truckee, CA 96161.

Who Can Be Listed on the Donor Recognition Wall?

It’s up to you! You can list your own name, your family name, a business name or it can be a name(s) in honor or memory of a beloved pet or person who has touched your life in a special way.

Time is of The Essence!

This is your last chance to join the campaign and have your name (or the name of a loved one) listed on the Heroes Now and Forever donor recognition piece in the lobby of our new shelter. We will be adding our final installment of names to the wall in October 2014.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of Truckee History!
