There are so many ways to donate to BrightSide! All donations are tax-deductible and very much appreciated. In fact, they are essential! BrightSide Animal Center depends upon donations and grants to keep operating. We are a 501c3 nonprofit, not a city or county department. Neither do we receive financial support from the Humane Society of the United States, ASPCA, or any other national or local animal-welfare organization. The animals in our care depend on YOU.
