gwenAfter several years of growth, increased community support, and focused leadership, HSJC has decided to establish an endowment to help prepare for the future, to save animals like me for years to come.

Endowments are permanent funds which are held in perpetuity.  They begin with a minimum principle balance, which can be added to at any time, and only the investment income is expended annually.  Because of their structure, endowments can provide long-term sources of funding. As an example, an endowed account with a $100,000 balance and an investment return rate of 5% will provide $5,000 to spend each year.  An endowment with a $1,000,000 balance with the same return rate would provide $50,000 to spend annually!  As the principle balance grows, so does the spendable amount.  Imagine what HSJC could do with an extra $1,000, $10,000, or even $50,000 each year.  The possibilities are endless!

The HSJC endowment will not just support cats and dogs like me for one year, or even one generation, but forever.  Many of you know my story; I was left tied to a fence in the middle of winter, with frostbitten paws and covered in snow and dirt.  The kind hearts at HSJC took me in, got me the medical attention I needed, and truly saved my life.  Now, my mouth is forever stained with pink lipstick from the kisses of my new mom!

HSJC’s initial goal is to raise $10,000, which is the minimum principle balance needed to establish an endowed account.  Please help them reach this goal by making a gift to the endowment.  Your generosity will help homeless and needy animals like me find the love and warmth (but maybe NOT the lipstick) they want and need.

Can I crash on your couch for awhile?

All of HSJC’s available dogs are cared-for in foster homes and many of our kittens are raised by fosters families until they are old enough to be spayed and neutered and made available for adoption. Our growth and their very lives are dependent on potential fosters like you. Please consider becoming a foster home to help us help them.
