Ways To Give

Your gift is precious to us and it goes a long way.

Upon intake, we vaccinate, microchip, schedule spay/neuter appointments, bath, and heartworm test all of our animals. In order to give our residents the best care, we rely on our community to help. Below you will find all of the ways that you can help support the Belleville Area Humane Society!

Without you, we would not be able to do the work that we do!

Whiskers at Work

The Belleville Area Humane Society’s mission is to improve the lives of pets in our community, what better way then bringing them to your workplace?

We love our Whiskers at Work program for a variety of reasons. For our puppies and kittens, they provide great socialization. Whiskers at Work also helps promote adoption, volunteerism and fostering. BAHS knows how great shelter pets are and we want everyone else to know too! 

Studies have shown that interacting with a furry friend reduces stress and blood pressure. When our puppies and kittens meet new human friends, it gives us an opportunity to share our work with the community and our furry adoptable pets love them too!

You can schedule a one-hour playdate with your choice of puppies or kittens for a minimum donation of $250.

Or schedule a 30-minute Whiskers at Work for $150. Proceeds from this service will benefit all of the adoptable animals at the Belleville Area Humane Society.
