Become a Friend

We need your support, and every little bit helps. Just $2 a week can help feed an animal desperately needing your assistance.
Monthly Donation
The Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County established Friends to provide a stable funding source to meet the needs of our community’s animal care.  By giving a little each month, you will become a Friend and your support will help provide medical care, food, and shelter for the unwanted and abandoned animals in our community.

Please help the animals in our community by becoming a Friend of the Humane Society and committing to a monthly donation today.

Giving a little can mean a lot and can help us Make Happy Happen for these desperate animals.
