Donate Now Using PayPalPlease make a donation by clicking here. We are a non-profit, 501 (c) (3) organization that receives no government funding or funding from any national animal welfare groups. We do not receive funding from the Humane Society of the United States or the ASPCA. We are completely dependent on the kindness and generosity of animal lovers in our community to allow us to continue our life-saving mission. Your support is desperately needed! When you click on that link, you will be able to make donations online, and you can even set up monthly contributions. Our organization is registered with GuideStar. It lets you view our tax returns and how we use your donations each year, and our staff salaries.
We always need food donations from the public, but we really need good name-brands (i.e. Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul, Natural Balance, and Iams). Please do NOT donate Special Kitty, Ol'Roy, or EverPet food, which give our animals diarrhea. We would rather receive a 20-lb bag of Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul than a 40-lb bag of Special Kitty.
Other things we always need:
Volunteers • HE Laundry Detergent • Scoopable Cat Litter • Bleach • Dish Detergent • Adams and Frontline (NOT Hartz) Flea Products • Copy Paper • Leashes & Collars; • K9 Advantix • Dog and Cat Toys • Financial Donations • Kuranda Dog Beds • Carriers & Crates
We often need services that we can't afford: plumbing, electrical work, computer repair or expertise, landscaping work, fence building or repair. It is really helpful to have professionals willing to donate their labor or expertise.
To keep the dogs comfortable during the very hot Texas summers, we need donations of: Plastic Kids' Pools • Dog Bandanas • Sheets to Rig Shades • Any Water Mist Toys • Quality, Long Garden Hoses
During the winter, dogs are brought indoors, but it is still quite brisk many mornings. To keep them comfy and safe, we need donations of: Warm Blankets • Portable Heaters • Dog Sweaters • Tarps to Rig Wind Shields
The Cat Lady would like 1,000 Stretch and Scratch cat kennel scratchers to help the cats relieve some of the stress they experience here at the shelter. 1,000 scratchers would last at least 12 months. They are $75 for 50 of them. Even just one order would be enough for all the cats available for adoption right now!
Tree of Life
In our Adoptions building, we have a Tree of Life. The branches were bare, but as our shelter has expanded, so have the leaves started sprouting on our little tree. You can add leaves to our tree by donating to the shelter. Each donation to the Tree of Life will benefit the shelter, and will get you a leaf-shaped plaque on the tree. We hope to fill our tree with leaves! To purchase a leaf, donate $100 (bronze), $250 (silver), or $500 (gold) to the shelter. People have put their businesses, relatives, and of course, their pets' names on leaves. The tree is painted on the wall in the lobby, across from the cat room. Come view our tree and consider helping it blossom!
Any amount you can donate will be helpful, whether it's $5 or $5000. We can accept financial donations in the form of checks, cash, Master Card or VISA. Please do not mail cash to us, though. Checks and money orders can be made payable to Corinne T. Smith Animal Center and sent to the address at the top left of the page. You might also consider a monthly commitment. You can set up your bank to draft a set amount of funds to our account each month. Tax benefits are available if you itemize your deductions on your tax return. Cash you donate can be exempt from federal income tax.
A bequest may provide for a specific dollar gift, a percentage or your estate or specific asset(s) to be given to the CTSAC.
There are many ways to give a gift of life insurance. Whether you are purchasing a new policy or giving a policy that is no longer necessary or relevant to your needs, the CTSAC can be named as a recipient to receive part or all of the policy proceeds.
Appreciated securities such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds are a simple method of giving that may allow you tax deductions.
Gifts of real estate may include undeveloped land, a commercial property, a vacation home, or a personal residence. Whether you give a gift or real estate outright or if you make a gift of the remaining interest in that property while you are still using the property, such a gift may entitle you to sizeable tax deductions.
The charitable lead trust permits you to make a future transfer of assets to your heirs, while providing a regular, fixed amounts of income to the CTSAC for a specified number of years.
