A donation in memory or in honor of a person or pet is a wonderful way to show you care while making a difference in the lives of animals. Your gift will go directly toward helping the homeless pets in our community. The families of people or pets remembered or honored are happy to know a gift has been made on behalf of their loved one. A letter will be sent to the recipient notifying them of your contribution and your gift will be noted in the next HSTT newsletter issue.

Making a memorial/honorary donation is simple. Click here or call Dale Lawrence at (530) 582-2468 to make a donation and discuss notification arrangements.

Charitable IRA rollovers are a great option for people 70 and a half years of age and older. That’s because it allows you to make a gift from $100 to $100,000 to help homeless pets and the distribution won’t count as taxable income. An IRA rollover is also a great option if you don’t normally itemize your charitable deductions. Learn more.
