Tributes

Making a gift in honor or in memory of a loved one or a beloved pet is a meaningful way to pay tribute to someone special in your life. Your gift also helps the Humane Society of Sarasota County continue its lifesaving mission. 

You Can Make a Tribute Gift:

  • In memory of a pet or loved one
  • To celebrate birthdays (both pet and human!)
  • In lieu of holiday gifts
  • To commemorate graduations, weddings, and anniversaries 
  • Or just because…

Please provide the name of the honoree, a short message, and the name and address of the person who should receive a special card notifying them of the tribute. All honorariums and memorials are listed in our semi-annual print newsletters as well. As the donor, you will receive a tax acknowledgment letter for your donation.

Memorial Bricks

You may also purchase a memorial brick as a lasting tribute to a beloved person or pet. These bricks make lovely additions to a garden or walkway. Each brick is $75 and includes a customized inscription. For an additional $5, you can add a paw print.

The finished brick is yours to pick up, or it will be added to a wall in HSSC’s beautiful Memorial Garden. Please specify your preference when you place your order. 

Brick Guidelines

  • There is a limit of three lines and 13 characters per line. Spaces, punctuation, and symbols are considered characters.
  • Each line will be automatically centered.
  • If this brick is a gift, please specify the name and address of the person who should receive the notification. 
  • As the donor, you will receive a separate acknowledgment letter for the tax-deductible portion of your gift.

Please note that bricks take several weeks to be engraved. If your brick is to become a permanent part of HSSC, it may take several months before we accumulate enough bricks to add a layer to our wall.
