Ways to Give


Every day, we work tirelessly to save the most vulnerable animals and enrich the lives of pets and people. But without the public’s support, we couldn’t offer our animals an opportunity for a second chance at life.

Their second chances are made possible through generous gifts to our organization, and your gifts support the innovative programs and services dedicated to homeless animals. Supporters like you can be confident that their gifts are put to great use and that they have made a difference in the life of a homeless animal.

Shelter Wish List

Every day we are inspired by animals who provide unconditional love regardless of the hardships they face. The least we can do is offer them all of the comforts of home by providing them with a few of their favorite things that will help keep them healthy, happy and having fun!

Vehicle Donations

Have a vehicle you no longer need? Your four wheels could provide one of our four-legged friends with a much-needed tune-up and a second chance at life. When you donate your vehicle, proceeds from the sale of that vehicle go directly towards medical treatment, rescue services, food and shelter for our animals until they find a loving home.

Donate Your Vehicle

Stock Donations

When you transfer stock to the Arizona Humane Society, you are helping to provide toys, supplies and medication to care for our pets.

Transfer Stock

IRA Rollover

As you may know, Individuals over the age of 72 are required to take an annual minimum distribution from their traditional IRA accounts. You can reduce your income tax liability on your required minimum distribution by making a tax-free charitable IRA distribution (also called an IRA charitable rollover or qualified charitable distribution) to the Arizona Humane Society.

Donor-Advised Fund

If you have a donor-advised fund through Fidelity® Charitable, Schwab® Charitable, or BNY Mellon, you can recommend grants to the Arizona Humane Society through the widget below. More sponsoring charities may be added in the future, so please check back if your fund isn’t currently listed.

Workplace Giving

Check with your employer about workplace giving campaigns!

A very small percentage of your paycheck can make a major difference in the life of a homeless, injured, abused or abandoned animal. Many companies, such as American Express, Intel, Wells Fargo, and Casino Arizona, have payroll deduction programs available to their employees. Ask your human resources representative how to participate and obtain the required form.

If your employer uses the United Way as their vehicle for giving, just write in
“Arizona Humane Society, 1521 W. Dobbins Road, Phoenix, AZ 85041”
under Agency Name (Option C for Valley of the Sun United Way).

For Arizona Combined Federal Campaign, the Arizona Humane Society is #32220.

Many employers also match, fully or in part, all donations made by their employees to the Arizona Humane Society. Search to see if your company provides a matching gift.

Circle of Friends

In 2007, Arizona Humane Society supporters Heather Greenbaum and Julie Belgrad organized a dedicated group of donors to raise funds specifically for spay/neuter initiatives. Coined The Nifty Fifty in 2007 and later Circle of Friends, these passionate donors have made possible the spay/neuter surgeries of tens of thousands of animals and have undoubtedly reduced pet overpopulation in our community. The Circle of Friends is celebrated each year at Compassion with Fashion.

Interested in joining the Circle of Friends or supporting the Arizona Humane Society’s spay and neuter initiatives? Email giving@azhumane.org.
