2020 Humane Society Calendar

Every calendar has a three digit number assigned to it.

If your number is picked straight during the evening Pennsylvania Daily Number, the shelter will automatically send you a check in the amount of money shown for that day ($30 daily – more on weekends and holidays.).

When you or your gift recipient receives the calendar, they/you will register it with us by returning the included registration information. The calendars begin on January 1, 2020 and are good through December 31, 2020.

This is our most significant fund raising event all year.

Winston was surrendered to us by a gentleman who found him wandering. He arrived with a very deep and intense gash on top of his head.

Waynesburg Animal Hospital and tender loving care saved Winston. He was a staff and volunteer favorite.

This fortunate dog turned into a gentle giant with a new home where the family has hearts as big as Texas. He is loved! Winston’s story exemplifies our mission

We never tire of watching animals heal at the Humane Society. We never tire of happy adopters. Rescuing, recovery, and rehoming is our mission.

It is because of you that we are able to reach out to these animals in need when all hope seems lost.

What can $10/month do?

MONTHLY DONATIONS VIA Electronic Fund Transfer

If you choose, you can have a monthly deduction made from your checking or savings account account. This is called an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). Here is a form, in Adobe PDF format, that you can complete and send to us at the Shelter, to set up an EFT. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to download and print this form.

Electronic Fund Transfer Form

If you are interested in having your name or business name presented to the animal-loving public at our shelter, check the Buy a Brick program page.

For these animals and so many others, please consider joining the

Power of 10 Club

and make a tax deductible, automatic, donation every month via PayPal or electronic fund transfers.

Buy A Brick

Each brick is engraved with the name of a person, family, or institution who has given us support

Some of our supporters participate in our Buy a Brick program. There is a brick wall at the shelter, and for $100 you can add a brick to it. The brick will have an inscription of your choosing. This is a good way to present your family to other animal lovers, memorialize someone who loved animals, or put the name of your business in front of the public. Go to the Buy a Brick page to find out more about this way to support the Humane Society of Greene County.

The Humane Society, in conjunction with Greene County Community Service, is building houses or boxes for needy dogs and cats. The Humane Society is accepting donations of used or new 2 x 4 boards, sheet lumber, and wooden doors for this project. Should you have questions, call the Humane Society at 724-627-9988. This is a way for our supporters to clear out their garages, barns, and basements while helping both their neighbors and their neighbors’ pets. This is a project that costs little but will deliver a lot for some of the animals in our county.

Our facility could not exist without support from YOU, our donors.  We strive to provide the best care and service to our furry friends and adhere to a very strict budget.  We are a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization and our annual financial report is available for review, by appointment, during regular business hours

Without ongoing donations, the Humane Society cannot stay open. It is the only place of refuge for the abandoned and abused animals in a rural county with a large animal population. You can help the shelter continue to work on behalf of the animals that have nothing.

Making tax-deductible donations is convenient and easy. Our Power of Ten program gives supporters ways to help us now and in the future.

Consider this:

For Less than the cost of a pizza once a month, you can save lives and break the chains of abuse!

Join the Power of Ten Club to make this kind of miracle happen again for an abused animal. Click on this Power of Ten link to sign up for a repeating donation, to join the Power of Ten Club.

We use PayPal to handle credit donations, but you do not have to be a PayPal member or regular user to participate. Just go to the The Power of Ten page or click a button above, and select your level of participation–PayPal will guide you from there.

Please consider being a regular donor and we thank you on behalf of the homeless animals who have no voice.

There’s no need to be in the doghouse. If you have one lying around, bring it to us. We can use it. Here is a flyer to tell you about our new program in which we adopt a doghouse. Or you can call the shelter about it.

Donate Your Dog House

Donate Your Dog House

We are always in need of good quality dog food, and now, cat food as well. Many of the animals that come to us are badly undernourished. The quality of food is important in their recovery. There is a drop box outside our facility where donations can be left during hours that the shelter is not open. Please consider feeding an animal in need. Just look at the results we are getting!

The Humane Society is happy to take used dog boxes or dog houses. You can drop them off near our front gate, even if the shelter is not open. Humane Police Officers use dog houses for needy dogs in their care. If you had more dogs at one time than you now have, we are happy to reduce the clutter around your home by recycling your used dog house, box, or cage.

We now need a used or new garbage disposal.

Thank You !

Your used ink jet or laser printer cartridges can help the Humane Society. Turn them in to us at the shelter, or at the Humane Society bin at the Waynesburg Giant Eagle, and we can get money for them to use for animal care. We can accept all but Epson cartridges. You can clear out your home or office, recycle to reduce waste, and help the Society, all in one simple act. Contact the shelter for more information.
