Community Support

Community support is the key ingredient that fills tummies, provides warm beds and gives life-saving medial and behavioral rehabilitation to animals in need! As a donor supported safe haven for animals,  the Sonoma Humane Society is grateful for the depth of support which comes from our community of donors and partners. Every donation is crucial to an animal's well being and in sustaining our programs and services.

The Sonoma Humane Society is a locally founded and locally funded nonprofit organization. Here, every dollar is put to work helping animals in our community. We receive no government funding and no financial aid from any other humane society or shelter. It is our donors who breathe life into our life saving programs.

 Join us and the many generous donors listed here. With your support, every animal has hope for a brighter future!


Founder's Society 

The contributions of our Founder's Society Members have made a significant impact on our ability to provide animal care services over the past year. Their donations provide much needed resources for emergency medical procedures,  medical supplies, behavioral rehabilitation and adoption services - all of which we could not sustain without their support. We are deeply grateful for their generous financial support.

(The donors listed here have given donations of $1,000 or more between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016. To make a Founder's Society gift today, contact Rebecca Baker at 707-577-1903.)
