Why give to Humane Society Silicon Valley? 

#1: We have a $16,000 MATCH, just for SV Gives Day today!

#2: Equally important, because connecting an animal with a person has a transformative and profound impact on both lives. And yet, of the $358 billion given to charities in the U.S. in 2014, less than 1% was given to animal-related causes. At Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV), we want to change the national conversation from “people OR animals” to “people AND animals.” Because when you connect millions of animals with millions of people, you help build a foundation that enriches your entire community.

HSSV is the safety net for animals in Santa Clara County. We rescue from local shelters when they are full, or take in animals when their owners can no longer care for them.  We find homes for nearly 4,700 animals a year, and ~76% of them require extended medical or behavioral care when they come through our doors. Our animals available for adoption are here until they find a home, no matter how long it takes; we never euthanize based on space or time. THANK YOU FOR YOUR LIFESAVING GIFT!

Local humane societies are not chapters of the The Humane Society of the United States. To save the lives of homeless animals in your own community, please support the animal shelters, rescue groups, and humane societies in your local area.
