How You Can Help

Your contribution to the Galveston Island Humane Society goes to help the pets we care for each day.

All gifts made through the Membership Program will directly support these incredibly vital programs. Each dollar ensures that no healthy or treatable animal in Galveston will be in danger of euthanasia – whether a companion animal or wildlife. As a GIHS donor, you’ll be raising the profile of Galveston Island Humane Society and its life-saving work in the community and contributing to keep Galveston one of the pet-safest communities in our county.

GIHS Members share the distinction of being the Humane Society’s most generous annual contributors. GIHS members will receive exclusive communications, be invited to informative events and meetings and will connect with other members who share a passion for saving vulnerable animals.

AMOCO Federal Credit Union is teaming up with Galveston Island Humane Society to raise funds through their “Create Change” program. Through this generous program, you can generate funds for our organization with no out-of-pocket costs!

AMOCO’s program first began in 2010 when they decided to make an impact on the Galveston County Community. One idea to donate $25 to local Galveston County food pantries for every auto loan booked escalated into donating 1 percent from multiple loans to over 30 non-profit organizations.

Funds donated through this program make it possible for Galveston Island Humane Society to assist those who need us the most.

AMOCO’s program is simple:

Finance your next loan with AMOCO.
Tell your loan representative that you would like AMOCO
to match 1% of your loan amount and pay it forward to
Galveston Island Humane Society.
You’re done. It’s really that easy! AMOCO will take care of the rest.

For more information, please contact Caroline Dorsett-Pate at 409.740.1919 or Information about the “Create Change” program is available at

We are trying to provide Kuranda ShelterBeds to the animals in our care. ShelterBeds are made specially for animal welfare.  They have a chewproof design, strong frame and heavy duty fabric that resists digging and is easily cleaned. 

In addition to providing a comfortable, safe, resting spot, the beds are useful in place training.  This training helps socialize dogs, improving their chances for adoption and easing their transition into a new home.

Kuranda beds have been proven in shelters, rescues and fosters since 1998.  The beds aren’t cheap, but they typically last 5+ years in shelters, even longer in foster homes.  If a particularly energetic dog happens to damage a bed, parts can be replaced inexpensively.

Visit Kuranda ShelterBed to donate a bed today.  When you donate a bed, it will ship directly to GIHS and you will receive tracking information to confirm the bed made it to us.   If you want to donate multiple beds, please contact Kuranda directly at 800-752-5308.  Their customer service staff can save you money by shipping the beds together!

Stretch and Scratch pads help keep cats exercised and entertained, encourage natural behaviors, and provide enrichment for caged felines. You can donate pads directly to our cats. Visit
