HOPE Fundraisers & Ways to Give!

Help us give the animals a second chance at life! Here are some ways you can donate for orphaned animals in Saratoga County:

Donations

Donations of any kind are always needed; monetary as well as pet food, treats, toys, and supplies. All donations are tax-deductible. Make a donation via the paypal button below or via HOPE’s online donation form >

Check to see if your company or business will match your contribution.

Dog and Cat Food

We are actively holding regular pet food drives with the goal of assisting lower-income pet guardians keep their dogs and/or cats. Please see our calendar for specific dates and times. On a volunteer-available basis, we may be able to meet you on other dates/times.

Volunteer

If you think you would like to actively volunteer in any capacity, please send us your email address, and we will add you to the volunteer email list. Become a volunteer >

Animal Sponsorship

$30 Sponsors a cat. $50 sponsors a dog. You will receive a photo of your Sponsored Pet, brief history and thank you note. A great gift package for any animal lover! (If you’ve sponsored a H.O.P.E. animal already, please remind us who you sponsored, so we can be sure you sponsor a new pet!).

Educational Programs

H.O.P.E. reaches out to the next generation by visiting students, places of worship, libraries and other venues, and educating people in basic pet care and responsibility. Students learn about the human-animal bond. If you’d like to work with children we’d love to have your help with this program. No experience is necessary.

Transportation

We always need assistance bringing cats and kittens and supplies to or from our adoption clinics, veterinarian appointments, and events.

Creative Writing

You can help by writing articles for our quarterly newsletter “Paw Prints,” creating posters, or writing pet biographies for our website.

Use your Imagination!

  • Make some decorated H.O.P.E. donation jars, put them in your local stores, collect the donations monthly, and send them to H.O.P.E
  • Garage Sale / Bake Sale: Hold a garage sale or bake sale and donate the proceeds to H.O.P.E.
  • Post brochures and newsletters at your veterinarian’s office or local pet supply store
