As a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, the Humane Society of Sarasota County relies solely on donations from individuals, organizations, and corporations. HSSC receives no federal funding, nor are we funded by any national humane organization. Every donation, whether monetary or in-kind, serves a purpose and is used to help HSSC fulfill our mission to engage the hearts, hands, and minds of the community to help animals.
While monetary donations are always needed—and sincerely appreciated—there are lots of other ways to support HSSC that are just as meaningful. Thank you for considering a gift to HSSC.
Dish soap, paper towels, garbage bags, cat litter, and dog shampoo. These are just a few of the most-needed items at HSSC. They’re not glamorous, but they’re essential to keeping our animals cared for and our facility clean. On average, there are 150 animals at HSSC every day. That’s a lot of food, toys, and supplies. Every donated good helps us reduce expenses and put more resources towards program services. View our printable Wish List or shop our Amazon Wish List.
