Thank you for your interest in supporting the Humane Society of New Orleans! There are some very simple ways you can get involved in organizing an event to help our organization.

Organize a Fundraiser

Fundraisers at local schools or in your neighborhood are great ways to help our organization. It's easy to get started. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Pick a Fundraiser you want to plan:
    1. Throw a bake sale or serve some tasty lemonade
    2. Organize a dog or car wash
    3. Have a dog treat sale
    4. Organize a dog walk/run event
    5. Organize a yard sale
    6. Organize a read-a-thon. (Ask people you know to donate money for each page or each book you and your friends read.)
    7. Make flyers to promote the fundraiser
    8. Hand out the flyers in your neighborhood, local stores, your church, or at your school, etc.
  2. Tell people you know that you are doing a fundraiser and get them involved (family members, friends, neighbors, teachers, etc.)
    1. Remember to say "Thank You!" to those who helped you.
    2. Remember to always ask permission from parents and teachers before starting any fundraising event. Always work with friends and be safe!

Recycling

Collect any type of recyclable items (aluminum, glass, plastic, printer ink cartridges, etc.) which can then be turned in for money to be donated to our Humane Society. If your school or group is already involved in a recycling program, perhaps you could choose a specific month or two to donate funds to the group. How about April? Its officially designated as "Prevention of Cruelty To Animals Week".

Wish List

Collect items from our wish list and donate them to the shelter to directly help the animals.

Coin Drive

Hold a coin drive with a clever name such as Pennies for Pets, Dimes for Dogs or Cash for Cats. Place canisters (with your teacher's permission) in your classroom to collect money for the animals.

Spread the Word

Consider doing your next research paper, speech in class or article in your school newspaper about an animal-related topic. There are many animal welfare issues that deserve discussion such as spay/neuter, responsible animal care, humane treatment of wildlife, wildlife habitat and treating all animals with respect and kindness. There are lots of books, websites and magazines devoted to the subject.
