BENEFITING: HUMANE SOCIETY FOR SEATTLE-KING CO
The Humane Socity relies on the kind financial support of the community to provide programs and services to Seattle and all of King County. They have placed more than 50,000 loving companion animals during the last decade alone.
Founded in 1897, the Seattle Humane Society is a nonprofit organization. They depend on the support of the community to fund their programs. All gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
They receive no United Way or government funding and are entirely privately-funded. They make sure that $0.82 cents out of every dollar we receive goes directly towards caring for and supporting animals through life-saving programs.
Through tax-deductible donations, the Seattle Humane Society is able to save the lives of orphaned or abandoned companion animals, bring the healing touch of animals to the elderly and those who are terminally ill, provide humane education and serve as a community resource for pets when community members are displaced from their homes due to fire, flooding or other disasters.
