An Expansion Project for Pets and People
Dear Community Family,
Here at Heritage Humane Society, we’re on the homestretch of trading hard hats and hammers for a long overdue expanded and upgraded shelter to serve rapidly growing Greater Williamsburg. We’re at a critical need for your compassionate assistance.
Please, we need your help!
This essential community resource serves each one of us. From caring for abused or neglected animals in desperate need of care and taking in heartbreaking surrenders to lifesaving treatments and ultimately connecting neighbors with their furry (and sometimes not so furry) companions, HHS serves a role in all of our lives either directly or indirectly.
With construction finishing soon, we’re in great need of raising $50,000. If you and all of our community members come together to contribute, we will receive a matching gift of $50,000! This vital contribution will particularly help cover the unexpected expenses that can pop up during construction projects such as the unplanned overhead joists replacements and the unbudgeted major new power line desperately needed after the shelter recently lost all power for a full day.
Will you help us?
Please, click here to donate online. If you prefer to write a check, please include “Community Gift Match” in the memo line and mail it to 430 Waller Mill Rd., Williamsburg, VA 23185.
As your community resource, we invite you to see real-time updates here on our website or even schedule a hardhat tour, which are by appointment only.
On behalf of all of our amazing and dedicated staff, volunteers, and our HHS pets searching for their fur-ever homes, thank you!
Kimberly Laska, CAWA
