Generous financial contributions help make the Naperville Area Humane Society a leader in animal welfare and humane education in our community. The Naperville Area Humane Society receives no government funding and, while we have "humane society" in our name, we receive no funding from the Humane Society of the United States. Private donations are critical to our continued success, because they provide resources that make an immediate impact on the animals and the community we serve.

Other Ways to Donate

The Naperville Area Humane Society is always in need of funds and supplies that allow us to continue caring for dogs and cats in our community. We offer several programs for making financial gifts and donating supplies.

Tribute Gifts

The Lucky 7 Fund also underwrites the adoption fee for qualified owners choosing to adopt a senior dog or cat (7 years and older). Please click the "Make a Lucky 7 Fund Gift" button below, designate your financial donations to the Lucky 7 Fund in the "Additional Information" field in the form above, or visit the shelter to make a Lucky 7 Fund donation in person.

Pavers for Pets

Pavers for Pets is an opportunity to leave a lasting imprint of your dedication to the Naperville Area Humane Society and pave the way to a bright future for the pets and people involved. Engrave your name, a pet's name, a family member's name, or the name of a club or organization on a commemorative brick. Choose between a 4" x 8" or an 8" x 8" brick and customize the name or message. Your engraved brick(s) will be used to pave the area by the entrance of the shelter. Download the Pavers for Pets form, complete, and mail to the Naperville Area Humane Society.

Donate Supplies

As you can imagine, the Naperville Area Humane Society goes through a lot of dog and cat food as well as cat litter, towels, bleach and other supplies. Drive by the shelter on any given day and you'll see our message board showing the items for which we have the greatest need. Items can be dropped off at the shelter every day between 8am and 5pm using the service entrance. Please also view our current Wish List of items and supplies.
