Other Ways to Give

You can help!

Sponsor a Kennel

When you sponsor a kennel you provide animals in need with a warm place to stay, food, medical care and all the love they need and deserve. A kennel tag will be displayed on the kennel you sponsor, and this tag/sponsorship can be in honor or memory of a beloved pet or simply say your name (a great opportunity for business advertisement as well). Sponsorship opportunities include a dog kennel range from $250 to $1,000 annually. Cat kennel sponsorships range from $125 to $500 annually. We also give you the option to pay in full or have a monthly payment plan. Please call Stacey Coventry at (207) 942-8902 x103 or click the link above for more information!

Goodsearch

This is a quick, easy and cost-free way for you to support our animals. Simply visit goodsearch.com when looking for information on the internet and choose Bangor Humane Society as your charity. Goodsearch donates $.01 to us for each search conducted through their site. Doesn't seem like much, but if 1,000 people searched 2 times a day we could raise $7,300 dollars. If 10,000 people searched 2 times a day, we would raise $73,000! That's almost an entire month of expenses for the Bangor Humane Society.

Through this site there is also the option for online shopping through GoodShop. Hundreds of your favorite retailers including Best Buy, Home Depot, Amazon.com and PetCo.com (to name just a few) can be found on this site. You can even book hotels and order flowers! If 1,000 people spent just $500 each year through GoodShop, we could raise an additional $15,000 and if 10,000 people did this we could raise $150,000!

This means that just by searching the internet and shopping - something we all do everyday - we could work together to pay for up to three months of care for the homeless and unwanted pets of our communities! The best part about it - it wouldn't cost any of us a dime!

Honors and Memorials

A tribute gift is the perfect way to honor loved ones, both human and animal, who have touched our lives. Your gift will immediately go towards our lifesaving work--giving a second chance to animals in need.

Gifts and donations in Honor or in Memory of family, friends, pets or others are welcomed. An acknowledgement is sent to the honoree, next of kin or interested party. For details call the Bangor Humane Society at 942-8902.

Paw it Forward Donation

Are you the type of person who believes in improving the world through “Random Acts of Kindness”? Consider a “PAW IT FORWARD” donation where you can surprise a new adopter by prepaying an animal’s adoption fee! The new adopter will also be encouraged to “PAW IT FORWARD” as we make the world a better place for everyone!

You can donate to “PAW IT FORWARD” for a specific animal (click here for adoptable animals) or type of animal (kitten, puppy, bully breed, senior, etc).

Planned Giving

Planned giving can provide a lasting legacy of love to help animals in need. Planned giving can also provide you with tax benefits while simultaneously helping animals. Through a planned gift, you may be able to increase your current income or provide additional retirement income while reducing your income tax and estate taxes. Please seek the counsel of an attorney or financial advisor as you consider a planned gift.

For more information, please call 942-8902 ext 103 or email Stacey@bangorhumane.org.
