There are many ways you can help the orphaned animals of the Humane Society during their stay at the shelter.

​Your donation of dog and cat food (any brand) will help animals in our community through our food pantry. Individuals having economic difficulties can receive food for their animals so they can keep them at home rather than having to surrender them to the shelter.


Click here to purchase from our Amazon Wish List.

The Second Chance Adoption Center Wish List is the perfect way to ensure that you are making needed donations that specifically help our shelter animals.  All items on this list are essential to helping our shelter animals receive the highest quality of care during their stay at our shelter.  By using our Wish List as your guide you can know that your donation is both needed and will directly support our shelter animals.  You can print out the HSMC Wish List here.
