Special Emergency Giving Tuesday Donation Drive and Adoption Event

Tuesday, May 5, 2020 - 10:00am to 6:00pm

 

 

****** All adoptions will take place online. Our shelter is closed to the public. ******

 

Adoption questionnaires will be accepted starting Tues., May 5th at 10:00 am PST with the application window closing Tues., May 5th at 6:00 pm PST or when we've received 40 adoption questionnaire submissions, whichever comes first. We apologize in advance that everyone seeking a puppy will not be able to adopt as we have a limited number of puppies.

 

Here’s how you can get involved in HSTT’s Special Giving Tuesday Campaign, helping homeless pets in our community and beyond...

ADOPT!
HSTT has two litters of adorable puppies available for adoption on Tuesday, May 5th. Because our adoption process has been impacted by social distancing recommendations, our Giving Tuesday puppy adoptions will be completed entirely online. From submission of Adoption Questionnaire, to phone meeting with potential adopters, through to curbside pickup of pups on May 7th at our animal shelter, HSTT is taking our animal-loving community's safety into careful consideration every step of the way.

ADOPTION PROCESS*:

  • Adoption questionnaires will be accepted starting Tuesday, May 5th at 10:00 am PST with the application window closing Tuesday, May 5th at 6:00 pm PST or when we've received 40 adoption questionnaire submissions, whichever comes first.
  • Questionnaires will be processed during that window in the order they are received. If you have previously submitted an adoption questionnaire you will need to submit a new questionnaire during the submittal window. Questionnaires submitted outside of the window will not be considered. If you are interested in a specific puppy you will have the option to indicate that on your questionnaire.
  • Once you submit your questionnaire, you will get an email confirmation that your questionnaire was received.
  • After the initial confirmation email you will be contacted by an Adoption Specialist by phone/email to inform you of the next steps.

The links below will link to the live adoption applications starting at 10:00 am PST on Tuesday, May 5th

As an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19, the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe has banned together with nonprofits around the world for #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving and unity, taking place on May 5, 2020.

DOUBLE YOUR DONATION HERE!

Because HSTT has and will continue to suffer financial hardship due to a steep decline in donations, program and event income, we need your support more than ever before. To help us raise much-needed funding, one of our very generous donors has offered $30,000 in matching funds for all donations made on Giving Tuesday, May 5. That's right! Every  dollar will be matched dollar-for-dollar, having TWICE the lifesaving impact. AND... make a one-time donation of $150 or more OR sign up to donate $15 or more per month and you’ll be entered to win a $500.00 VISA Gift Card!**

FEEL THE LOVE!

The Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe’s intention on Giving Tuesday, and every other day of the year, is to make the world a better place for pets and for people. The only way we’re able to accomplish this lofty goal is through the generosity of our donors, the kindness of our adopters and volunteers and the support of our animal-loving community.

Adoption questionnaires will be accepted starting Tuesday, May 5th at 10:00 am PST with the application window closing Tuesday, May 5th at 6:00 pm PST or when we've received 40 adoption questionnaire submissions, whichever comes first. Please note that submitting your questionnaire does not guarantee the adoption of any puppy. 

* Under the new CARES Act, taxpayers can now take a deduction for up to $300 in charitable contributions even if they don’t itemize on their 2020 tax form. A generous supporter donated the $500 VISA gift card featured in our drawing for the specific purpose of raising more life-savings funds.

HSTT generally does not speculate on a pet’s breed and/or use breed labels for our animals. We have not received information on what breed the parents are, so your guess on what these pups are a mix of is as good as ours. The "Rays of Sunshine" pup's mom is about 50lbs and based on the puppies current size, we anticipate they’ll be medium or large sized dogs, but we never really know for sure. So let’s look past the breed label and call these little rays of Sunshine fluffy, sweet goofballs! Below, we've included a photo of the mother of the Rays of Sunshine Litter whose photos will be posted along with her's.
