difference in the lives of companion animals. No
donation is too small to make a difference!

Memorial Wall Tiles
Memorial wall tiles may be
purchased for $250. We can use a
black and white photo in most cases,
as long as it has clearly defined
images, handwriting (either supplied
or font), or a black and white line drawing. We need a
minimum of six tile orders before we
can have the tiles fired, so it may
take some time to get yours up on the wall. Call 269.963.1796,
ext. 19 to purchase a memorial tile. The cost for a memorial
tile is $250.
Yearly Kennel Sponsorships
These high-quality, full-color signs,
designed and created by Jerry Ure
N Designs, are adhered
inside dog kennels, just above the
dog’s head-height where everyone
who visits the dogs will see. Additionally,
HSSCM staff members will send you
monthly photos and stories about
the dog currently in your kennel, and let
you know when that dog has been adopted!
For businesses that purchase a kennel
sponsorship, we can even arrange
to bring a program on the shelter
itself, along with a currently-available
shelter dog, to your facility to
visit with your staff members. Kennels
are sponsored annually for $1,000.
Bryan Thomas Memorial Fund
The Bryan Thomas Memorial Fund provides medical and surgical care for sick or
wounded animals at the sanctuary. On an average, 200 animals annually are
treated for anything from fractures to heartworms. Without this program, the
HSSCM would not be able to treat at-risk animals that arrive with medical needs.
