How it Works

Make a donation through our Animal Advocate program and give a second chance to animals that come through the doors of our shelter, our wildlife rehabilitation center or our farm facility.

We will send you a custom card with a photograph of your chosen animal, including specific information about that species and their special story.

You will also receive ongoing information about the Whatcom Humane Society and how your support helps so many homeless, unwanted, abused and orphaned animals in our community.

Wild animals need your support too!
