How Can You Help?

animal shelter donations


Are you unable to adopt or would like to help by donating to an animal in need? Here are our suggestions for what you can do best to help Somerset Humane Society Animals in need.


Sponsor an Adoption!

We are always in need of people to sponsor adoption fees for specific animals.  This is a great way for you to help animals to get out of the shelter quicker.  Sometimes people with a fixed income would like to adopt but cannot afford the whole adoption fee.  Your generosity would help make their day!
