A donation of any amount would allow us to improve the lives of countless homeless dogs in Plumas County and beyond. Although we are appreciative of every gift we receive, monthly giving may be the only way HSAR will be able to continue to life saving work it provides. If you have adopted from HSAR, had a helping hand, or have personally experienced the good work that the entire organization has done for a homeless pet, then you know what a crucial role HSAR plays in saving the lives of unwanted animals in our community. Specifically, here is how your generous donations can help a rescue dog:

        $25          Pays for gas to/from county shelters

        $50          Provides a dog with a microchip and vaccines

        $100        Covers the cost of a special needs vet visit

        $250        Helps spay and neuter two dogs

Donors can also direct their insurance plans, retirement funds and IRAs in support of HSAR. This designation often allows the donor to make a considerable legacy gift.
