Donations Needed

Spokane Humane Society
Due to its successful spay, neuter and adoption programs over many years, Spokane Humane Society (SHS) is able to rescue pets from “kill” shelters all over the country. To do this more effectively, SHS is purchasing a rescue transport vehicle capable of humanely transporting 24 animals. Thanks to several supporters, your donation will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $45,000. Donate online or mail a check to Spokane Humane Society, PO Box 6247, Spokane, WA, 99217. Please be sure to write “New Hope” in the memo field on your check. 

Project Beauty Share
Project Beauty Share has an urgent need for sanitizing wipes. The wipes are used to clean and sanitize donations of personal hygiene items, cosmetics and beauty products, which Project Beauty Share provides to women and families overcoming abuse, addiction, homelessness and poverty. Wipes can be dropped off at Project Beauty Share at 2718 E. Sprague Ave., Spokane, WA, 99202, or search for their Amazon wish list.
