Your donation today will help us prepare the MANY animals that come through our doors for adoption.

The Tri-County Humane Society offers over 4,000 animals every year the opportunity for compassionate care as well as a second chance for a new home.  Our work is made possible through your generous donations and continued loyalty.

In whatever way you are able to help, in the way that fits your schedule, budget, and concern for animals, be assured that every dollar is wisely used in the best interest of the animals.

Thank you for your financial and moral support!  Your charitable gift will enable us to continue providing shelter for homeless animals in Central Minnesota while they are awaiting a new home.

(TCHS is a 501©3 nonprofit. Contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent as permitted by law.)

 Appreciated securities can be transferred to Tri County Humane Society (TCHS) without being sold.

Securities are transferred "in kind" meaning that they are transferred to TCHS through a brokerage account. Then, when TCHS receives the securities, they are allowed to sell the securities without incurring a capital gain. The donor also does not incur a capital gain but may take a charitable deduction equal to the value of the securities at the time of transfer. A donor's tax advisor should be consulted. TCHS has established a brokerage account through Schluchter Investment Advisors in St Cloud to assist donors with their gifting opportunities.
