April 23rd is Give Local 757, the biggest giving day of the year for Hampton Roads, and The Heritage Humane Society invites the local community to join the revelry by making a paws-itive difference in the lives of Greater Williamsburg’s largest homeless pet population. Every donation stays 100% local and helps right here in the community.

What is Give Local 757?

Give Local 757 is an annual event in the Hampton Roads area where individuals and organizations come together to support local nonprofits such as The Heritage Humane Society through online giving. This year, the day of giving begins at 12 a.m. midnight on Tues., Apr. 23, 2024, and concludes at 11:59 p.m. that day. Those wishing to give can click on The Heritage Humane Society page on Give Local 757.
The Heritage Humane Society is one of the qualifying organizations that can receive donations through Give Local 757. Only organizations that are verified 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofits that are either headquartered or provide services in Hampton Roads can participate.

Donations with double the impact

Operating the shelter costs more than $3,000 every single day. One of the biggest questions people are most curious about is how their donations make an impact. The Heritage Humane Society loves to share that their goodwill and kindness make a difference in these ways:
  • $10 – Will provide microchipping for one pet
  • $25 – Will provide most vaccines for a pet upon arrival at the shelter
  • $50 – Will provide ten enrichment activities for pets
  • $150 – Spay or neuter for one pet before adoption
  • $250 – Sponsor food for most shelter pets for two days
  • $350 – Cover the cost for one pet with urgent medical needs to receive diagnostic and evaluation
  • $500 – Care for the cost of one pet from intake (surrender, stray) to adoption

Adoptable pets ready for a forever home

The shelter is filled with homeless pets who are eager to have forever home. More than 150 dogscats and small pets are currently in their care. Adoptable pets are available to meet during The Heritage Humane Society’s visiting and adopting hours from 12 to 4:30 p.m., Tues. through Sun.
