Other Ways to Help

A revolutionary dog-powered fundraising tool for animal shelters. The Walk for a Dog program makes it possible to fund raise for your local animal shelter every time you take your dog for a walk.
Don’t just take your dog for a walk. Take your Walk for a Dog every day.  Every Walk for a Dog counts, whether it’s a walk around the block or a three-mile hike.  The more people actively walking with the greater the donation to HSR.

Donate Your Bottles and Cans
Would you like to support the shelter but do not have much free time or extra money?  Then how about donating your bottles and cans?  Drop them off at Erie Blvd W Returns, 1014 Erie Blvd. W, Rome, and ask to have the donation added to the Humane Society of Rome account.  This is an easy way to help the animals while also supporting a local business.  If you can’t make it to the recycle center, you can drop them off at the shelter.

Estate Planning

The Humane Society of Rome, New York has been providing homeless, abused, sick and injured animals with humane care since 1956.

By including our organization as a beneficiary of your will, trust, life insurance or retirement plan, you can provide a lasting testament to your love of animals that will help future generations of pets in need. You can also donate securities or real estate. There are many options for planned gifts which may provide you with tax benefits, increase your current income, or provide additional retirement income while reducing income tax and estate taxes. It is important to explore your options so that both you and the animals receive the full benefit of any considered gift.

Including us in your estate plan also qualifies you for membership in our Legacy Society. As a member, you will enjoy invitations to special events and activities, a newsletter, and the peace of mind in knowing your support will literally save pet’s lives.

The Humane Society of Rome, New York, Inc. strongly encourages you to consult with an attorney or other expert of your choice.
