We all need a home for the holidays. 

Need gift ideas?  We can help:


·         Holiday Squares

Come to HSSW or ReTails Thrift Store and make a donation of $5, $10, $25, $50 and $100 and a square with your name will be hung on our holiday tree and in our windows to create a tapestry of giving at the two organizations.  If you can’t come in, when you give in these denominations online, write “Holiday Square” in the notes section and we will fill out a square and add it to our tree.

·         Financial Contribution

Just want to make a donation to help with our general operations including adoptions, medical services, food and programs?  

Donate now


·         Give a gift to honor a friend or family member

As a holiday gift, make a donation in honor of someone special and we will mail them a card to put under their tree. Go online and make a gift in honor of your friend and write, click “This is a Gift” and HSSW staff will handle the rest! If you would like to write a personal note on your card, just call us or stop in to pick up your cards.


·         Dog and cat food

Dogs and cats never stop eating.  Last year, we fed more than 80,000 pounds of dry dog and cat food.  Drop off your donation of food to HSSW or ReTails Thrift Store. 


·         Donate a vehicle

 It’s easy.  Simply contact Julie Gaskell at jgaskell@southwesthumane.org or call her at (360) 213-2619 to make arrangements for someone to pick up your car, truck, boat or RV.  Make your donation on or before December 31 for a 2014 tax deduction.


·         Amazon Smile and Fred Meyer Rewards

Simply go on line and register with both companies and a portion of your purchase will be given to HSSW!

·        Shop.  Donate.  ReTails.

When you donate and shop ReTails Thrift Store, all of the revenue goes to support the dogs and cats.

·         Adopt an animal this holiday season

It’s always a great idea to choose a shelter animal for your next family member.  From now through December 31 when you adopt a cat or a dog, you get to draw from a holiday stocking for discounts on adoption fees.

Animals available for adoption


·         Volunteer

We are grateful for all the volunteers who assist at the Adoption Center-Shelter and at ReTails Thrift Store.  We have a volunteer spot for you on our team.  Contact Shonda Feather at sfeather@southwesthumane.org if you are interested in contributing some of your time. 


More than anything, we are grateful. 

Thank you for choosing  HSSW for the holiday season.  The dogs and cats thank you, too!
