How to Donate
Be a Best Friend: Recurring Donations
Animals are often referred to as our best friends, and now you can reciprocate. One of the ways that you can help support HSoMC is by becoming an HSoMC “Best Friend.” Best Friends are a special group of HSoMC donors who give recurring monthly donations. It doesn’t need to be a lot, but by committing to give the same amount for an extended duration of time, YOU help HSoMC by giving us a predictable revenue, which enables us to budget responsibly so that we can ensure our animals get the care they need.
Our donation levels are as follows:

Sponsor an Animal
Sponsoring helps cover the ongoing cost of care for a pet at HSoMC. The generosity of your sponsorship provides care for an animal of your choice, and you will receive updates on the animal to learn how your contribution made a difference.
To sponsor an animal in our care, select a pet from our adoptable pets list and choose a sponsorship level below.
|Care||$40||General medical expenses, including check-ups and vaccines|
|Care Plus||$60||General medical expenses plus adoption fee|
|Senior||$80||Advanced medical care; senior cat adoptions are free|
|Care||$150||General medical expenses|

If your sponsorship includes an adoption fee, we will send an email notification when that pet is adopted.
