Donations help us help the animals! 

We appreciate all donations! We heavily rely on donations to provide care and comfort for all the animals here at the shelter. Donations help us provide veterinary care to the sick, food for the animals, toys and blankets for comfort, and also to help us keep the building up and running. 

  • Amazon Smile! - Do you like to shop online using Amazon? They have this super cool program where if you shop on you can have them donate a portion of your purchase to your local animal shelter! It has all of the same products as Amazon, however, with the donation option. It's an easy way to lend a hand! 
  • In Person - We love to have people visit the shelter whether you're donating or are just stopping in to say "hello". However, if you would like to donate we do accept donations directly. We can also give you a receipt for tax purposes. We super appreciate it! 
  • Online - Donate online using the "Donate to the Animal Rescue" button above. These funds go directly to the animals for their care...thank you!
  • Volunteering - Giving money isn't the only option to help. We love having volunteers out to help out around the place. Walking dogs, playing with cats, cleaning stuff, and much more! It's a free way to help us care for all these rascalls here at the shelter. Get your daily dog or cat fix in by volunteering! No time requirements or strict volunteering schedules here...come in when you can. Volunteers help make this place great! Call or stop in to inquire.


Other Ways to Help

BECOME A MEMBER OF THE BMHA BOARD: We can always benefit from new ideas and new suggestions. We are currently looking for people to help with grant writing, as well as someone to function as the BMHA Treasurer. If you are a dedicated, hard-working person, seriously concerned with improving animal welfare in Union County and the surrounding area, we want to hear from you!

HELP WITH AND PARTICIPATE IN FUNDRAISERS: Fundraising is one of the ways in which we are able to raise awareness and donations for the Animal Rescue. We have several fundraisers during the year, including the Doggie Dash in the Fall and the Santa Paws event in December. Do you have an idea for a great partnership or fundraiser? Share it with us. We LOVE to hear new fundraising ideas.
