Becoming a Forever Friend is simple and easy! Just pick the amount you would like to be billed to your credit card each month. At the end of the year, we will send you a gift acknowledgement summarizing your donations for the year.
With the monthly support from our Forever Friends, we can make sure the pets in our care receive the medical care, time and attention they need to heal and find their new loving homes. Here are just a few reasons that monthly giving will work for you:
1. It’s affordable! You can spread your contribution out over the year. Monthly giving allows you to give larger annual gifts through smaller monthly payments.
2. It’s convenient! Your gift will be withdrawn and will appear each month on your credit card statement. You avoid the hassle of writing a check and receive a single summary of all of your gifts at the end of the year.
3. It’s flexible! You can choose a donation level that works for you!
Critical medical care for our animals is the largest part of the HSGS budget, totaling more than $230,000 each year. It’s where funding for our shelter is always greatly needed. As Savannah’s only Humane Society, many animals arrive at our facility from an uncertain background, with little or no veterinary care, sometimes after roaming and scavenging for months. Our goal is to end the euthanasia of healthy animals and animals with treatable conditions!
The Tyler Medical Care Fund
Named after Tyler who was taken too soon by cancer, this sweet boy never met a stranger ❤️. He had a constant smile on his face and could brighten anyone’s day. We hope that with his legacy, all animals will be able to receive the medical care they need. This in-house fund provides ongoing medical care for 2,200 shelter animals each year. Treatment ranges from antibiotics and vaccinations to testing, spay and neuter surgery, and more. The health and well-being of animals in our shelter is an important part of our mission. The Tyler Medical Care Fund allows us to begin treating animals the moment they arrive at our shelter.
Your gift today will give a shelter pet a second chance, so that they may never live another day without medical care, shelter and most importantly love!
Organizing an event to benefit the Humane Society for Greater Savannah is a great way to give back to your community while having fun with friends and family. Collecting donations at a birthday party or hosting a fundraiser at your business or school are just a few great ideas to help our city's pets.
In order for us to best assist you as you plan your event, we’d like to learn more about your plans! The more we know (and the earlier we know) the better we can support you.
