Donors play an extremely important role in regards to Humane Pennsylvania’s success. Their kindness supports our unique and highly effective approach to helping animals. Without them, Humane Pennsylvania (HPA) would not be able to rescue or adopt out thousands of homeless pets, stray or surrendered, each year and provide other cutting-edge programs such as Spike’s Pet Pantry, Safe Haven, and our Healthy Pets Initiative.
HPA is a private, non-profit, charitable organization (501c3). All of our funding comes from direct charitable gifts. HPA does not receive funding from the federal, state, or local government, or from national interest groups like the HSUS or ASPCA. Since many of us are experiencing the emotional and financial stresses associated with COVID-19, our hearts are truly touched by the continued support shown by our community members.
Even though our buildings are partially shut down, our staff is still very dedicated to HPA’s mission, whether it be through day to day care of the shelter animals, scheduling appointments for animals in need of veterinary care, or assisting community members with accessing pet food. These services are able to continue because of the donations received. Items such as food, litter, cleaning supplies, or monetary donations all make a very big difference. Every donation means an animal can be cared for or a service can be continued.
At this time, Humane Pennsylvania wants to say thank you for the outpouring of love and support. We are here to support you and the animals of Berks and Lancaster counties during this national crisis.
