The Humane Society of Parkersburg is a not-for-profit organization that relies heavily upon donations to provide a high level of care for the animals in our Shelter as well as to support animal welfare efforts in our community. Donations can take many forms but most common are monetary donations, supplies and services.
A very easy way to support the HSOP and benefit from making a charitable donation is through a cash gift. Monetary gifts can be made in the form of memorial and honorarium gifts to celebrate those special people, pets or events in our lives.
