Ways to Help
The most important way that you can help the Suncoast Humane Society is by making a donation. By donating, you become a critical part of our mission to reduce the number of homeless animals and improve the quality of life. You help animals find loving homes, teach children compassion toward animals and provide valuable programs and services to the people and pets of our community.
Suncoast Humane Society will not sell, trade or share a donor's personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations.
Suncoast Humane Society is looking for the next stars of our annual calendar photo contest!
Pet parents throughout Charlotte, Sarasota and Lee Counties vie for the coveted front and back covers plus, pet of the month honors. The competition promises to be fierce this year so, make sure your pet looks his/her best, is in a favorite pose and get ready to submit their photo for judging.
Over 5000 calendars will be distributed throughout the area, possibly with your fur baby on the cover! Your friends and family can vote for your photo(s) in our online photo gallery! Once your pet's photo has been uploaded, share the link by email or social media to get your family and friends in on the fun! Each vote is $1 with a minimum donation of $5 (5 votes). Remember, each vote is another dollar to help the homeless pets at your humane society!
The 62 photos with the most online votes will be eligible for final judging by an independent panel for the following:
