Donations make our work possible:

Donations from folks like you--along with fundraising events and grants--fund our programs. Feel free to tag a specific program with your cash donation, or simply allow us to spend it where we have the most need (see our major sources of income and our major expense areas below)


You can give us a tax-deductible donation in several ways:
•   Send a check to Chama Valley Humane Society, PO Box 131, Chama, NM 87520

•   Make a one-time donation through PayPal (you specify the amount)
•   Make a recurring monthly donation through PayPal ($5, $10, $20, or $30 a month)



•   Make a donation through donor-advised fund account such as the Schwab Charitable Fund


•   Donate artwork, jewelry, or other goods (new or with intrinsic value, please) that we can auction at one of our events-
    Send us an email if you have items to donate.

•   Donate food or a gift card that allows us to buy food or drink for one of our events or supplies for our foster animals-
     Send us an email if you have items to donate.


During March and April we also welcome donations of used items (clean and in working condition, please) for our annual yard sale  -  Send us an email if you have items to donate.



And we always welcome clean, used blankets, dog beds, crates, leashes, collars and other items that helps us keep our foster kittens, puppies, and dogs comfortable and safe. Send us an email if you have items to donate.



How we get our money and where it goes:

In 2014 our annual events brought in the lion’s share of our income, with near sub-equal amounts coming from Humane Place sales and from cash donations not linked to a specific event.  We also received two memorial donations that helped us fund our shot clinics.
Our two largest programs are rescue-foster and spay-neuter, both of which are focused on our mission of reducing the number of homeless cats and dogs in our area. We also had expenditures associated with fundraising (advertising, food, etc.), Humane Place expenses (rent, supplies, etc), cost of sales for pet food and t-shirts, and community education efforts.  General operations (website, phone, office supplies) is well below 10% of our expenditures.
