There are many ways you can help HSO, whether it’s through your services, time and effort or by making a donation. Each and every contribution contributes to saving the lives of pets and keeping those pets with their owners here in your own community. Although all of our staff, Board members and volunteers work very hard to make a difference we can’t do it alone. It takes the efforts of as many people as possible to make an impact! Please consider getting involved, whether it’s in a small or large way – it matters!
Foster a Pet: HSO often rescues animals that have been abused, abandoned or neglected and are in need of finding their forever homes. These animals require a special kind of love and understanding in order to be matched with their forever family. Because of this, our foster program is one of the most important programs that we have. In order for these animals to find their forever home they need to be properly socialized and provided with a safe, loving environment. We are in constant need of foster families. A loving home is the best possible place for an animal and is important for their well being. It also gives us the opportunity to learn more about that animal when they are in a home environment.

Sponsor a Pet: By sponsoring part or all of the cost of boarding for one of our pets you are helping us to save more animals. It costs our organization approximately $70/week to board one pet. We also accept up to 50% of the adoption fee for any pet. Click here for more information or to sponsor a pet. Any amount is appreciated!
Become a Member: Show your support by becoming a member and helping to support our programs that help the pets and their owners right here in your own community. Click here for more information about membership levels and member benefits.
Become a Friend of HSO: Show your support by conducting a small fundraiser for the Humane Society of the Ozarks. Individuals and businesses can help support our programs by organizing a small event or donating a portion of their profits for a specific amount of time. This is tax deductible and a relatively small amount of effort that can make a significant difference in our ability to further and expand our services. HSO can help promote these events on our website and through social media if you let us know the details. Click here for more information.
Volunteer: We treasure each of our volunteers who are willing to spend a small amount of their time helping us to perform different tasks such as helping to promote a dog at one of our adoption events, assisting with various tasks during fundraising events or helping out around our office by performing light administrative duties or answering the phone. Click here for more information about volunteering or to sign up as a volunteer.
Promote: One of the easiest, quickest and cheapest ways to help is by liking and sharing our posts on social media platforms. This makes sure that adoptable pets are seen by as many people as possible. Information about important safety and educational matters, as well as HSO events can also be seen by many more people. It only takes a matter of seconds to share a post and help to make a difference for pets everywhere. Click here for more information.
Donate: Your donation can help us provide more vital, live-saving services for the pets of Northwest Arkansas through our many programs. Because we receive no government funding, we rely on donations from businesses and individuals. We take donations of all sizes and types, including pet supplies and monetary funds. Any supplies our organization can’t directly utilize becomes a part of our Shelter and Rescue Outreach Program, where it is donated to a local shelter or rescue organization in need. Our website now makes it easy for you to make a monetary donation directly to the program you might like to support or as a general donation. You can even make it recurring donation.
