About This Campaign

Not long ago, things were looking pretty dark for one tiny tabby who had fallen down a storm drain. Fortunately, compassionate friends like you put a silver lining on Storm’s cloud. Thanks to you, she received urgently needed care and found her way into a loving forever home.

Campaign to Support Valley Humane Society

Valley Humane Society is a private, nonprofit animal rescue and adoption center working to rescue and adopt homeless dogs and cats. We also provide community resources, children's humane education, and therapeutic pet visitations. We have been working in the community since 1987 and have a strong volunteer network to assist in providing our lifesaving programs and life-enriching services. Valley Humane Society is not a branch of any state or national humane society, and does receive funding from such groups, nor from taxes, state or federal sources, or the United Way.

Not long ago, things were looking pretty dark for a tiny tabby named Storm. While running across a suburban street with her feral mother and siblings, she lost her footing and fell more than eight feet, landing on the hard cement floor of a neighborhood storm drain. Trapped, she cried for two days before a neighbor heard her and set a rescue effort in motion.

When Storm was finally lifted out of the hole and rushed to the vet, they discovered she had broken her bones in eight separate spots from her hips, all down her hind legs. She needed treatment immediately, along with a place to recuperate.

This is where you come in.  You helped write this very special story of rescue and healing. Your support provided the resources for Storm’s damaged body to be repaired. You enabled us to treat her, feed her, and supply her with everything a growing kitten needs. Your support of Valley Humane Society meant she had a place to stay – safe and sound – until someone came along to adopt her and love her forever. 

Will you help us do it again? Every animal we rescue isn’t as broken as Storm, but they all need our help to survive. They all need someone to show them kindness and give them a second chance.

Right now – today– we have the chance to do just that, and in a big way. One of our compassionate supporters has generously offered to match every donation you make on Giving Tuesday up to $10,000. Can you help us meet that match?

Storm’s story has a happy ending – a silver lining that you created. We’re counting on you to help Valley Humane Society write many more such endings this year and throughout 2018.

Please join us November 28, 2017 for #GivingTuesday. Turn this matching gift offer into pure sunshine, and donate now.

4:15 PM UPDATE -  Through this campaign page, other online portals and off-line donations, we have raised just over $8,000 of our $10K goal! Thank you so much to everyone who has donated thus far. Please consider sharing Storm's video or this campaign to help us meet the full amount of our matching gift offer.

    Dedication In Memory of: Shadow
    Mom and Dad: No dog will ever replace your dear Shadow, but please know you provided her with a safe home full of love and laughter. While your hearts have begun mending, I'm sure you will feel her absence during this holiday season. But, we know she is in safe hands watching over you from above--after all, watching over you was her job and she did it well.
