Support through sponsorships and partnerships allows the DRHS to rescue and advocate for our four-legged friends, and educate our communities! Different forms of sponsorship support at the DRHS include sponsoring the care of costs for in-house animals, sponsorship through special events like Tails at Twilight, or sponsoring areas of the DRHS like our kennels!

Memorial and Honorary Gifts
Gifts or tribute bricks can be dedicated in memory of a family member, friend, four-legged loved one, or in honor of a special person or event in your life. If the donor wishes, the DRHS will be happy to notify the designated person, or family, in whose name the gift is given.

Planned Giving
Leave a legacy of compassion toward our mission of providing a safe haven for animals in need and nurturing the human-animal bond by including the DRHS in your estate plans.


Spreading a gift commitment over a defined period of time is preferred by some donors. If you are interested in making a pledge, we will work with you to determine the pledge amount, time period, and what needs you would like your donation to benefit whether for a specific use or where the need is greatest.

Third Party Fundraisers

Hundreds of individuals, businesses, and organizations throughout the tri-states have creatively raised money to benefit the animals at the DRHS. It’s all thanks to their generosity and support that we can continue our efforts as a no-kill humane society committed to rescuing, supporting, educating and advocating for our companion animals. Learn more about third party fundraisers.

RaiseRight Gift Card Fundraising

Gift card fundraising is a simple, effective way to raise money for the Dubuque Regional Humane Society, with supporters able to raise 5X more for the organizations they care about, just through their everyday shopping. Also known as scrip fundraising, you raise money for DRHS by using gift cards instead of cash or credit to pay for everyday purchases like groceries, gas, dining out, that morning coffee addiction, even your family’s summer vacation. Learn more about RaiseRight here and how you can start using it to support the DRHS!
