Work Place Giving
Many businesses, corporations, and government agencies have workplace campaigns through which an employee may contribute to the charity of their choice. The Society has been included as a recipient in many of these plans. Please consider designating your gift to the AHS through your workplace program. If the AHS is not already a designated charity, please inquire if we may be added.


Matching Gift
The organization you work for may have a matching gift program. In this manner any gift you give in support of the animals and the AHS can be matched with a like or greater gift to the AHS by your company. You can find out more about matching gifts by speaking with the appropriate person at your place of employment.



At the Humane Society, we work to adopt every animal in the shelter quickly. In a perfect world, every animal would find a home, however, this is not the case.  While our animals wait for their forever home, we rely on local rescue groups to provide a temporary home. Currently, we have over 450 rescue groups on file and we work with over 100 on a regular basis. Without their aid, more and more animals would go without a home. They are true friends to our shelter, and many
others like ours.

If you have a moment, please take the time to visit their website by clicking on the logos below. If you are a rescue group, and would like to join us in our quest to save every adoptable animal, please fill out our rescue application and return it to rescue@clarkhumane.org. Please include a copy of the application, contract, and any professional references. Thank you again for all you do for the animals and for partnering with our shelter in our endeavors!
