Campaign Details

Each year, the Humane Society of Manatee County cares for more than 700 dogs and cats who are neglected, unwanted, unable to stay with their families through no fault of their own, or are in desperate need of veterinary care. With your support, they can have a second chance to have a loving family and steal their hearts, just like your pet has done. 

You can help save dogs like Rosemary, who was abandoned in a medium-size dog crate along with her 5 puppies and two other adult dogs. You can help save cats like Antoinette, whose pink nose is a result of sunburn and other environmental conditions. She was left outside in the hot sun and brought to us by a Good Samaritan.

GivingTuesday falls on November 30th, four days after Black Friday and the day after Cyber Monday. We ask that if at all possible, you try to spend just a tiny bit less on those days so that you can give a tiny bit to us. If we can get enough people to give us a small amount, we can get through the end of the year and hopefully beyond.

We also know that a lot of you are struggling too, so if you're not in the position to donate, you can also help by sharing our campaign with others you think might want to help, or even better, start your own fundraising campaign by clicking the button above that says “Fundraise for this Campaign.” It’s so simple.

Thank you!
