THE $3.00 Shelter Challenge is here for all of MAY – HELP OUR SHELTER WIN THE CHALLENGE

Latest News
  • The shelter is open BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
May 3, 2022 – May 31, 2022 all-day America/New York Timezone


Seven years ago, a retired couple on a fixed income sent the Warwick Valley Humane Society a $3 donation to help a rescued pigeon. I thought, if everyone could send in just $3 to a shelter or rescue, they could feed their pets, pay their vet bills, spay and neuter their kittens and so much more.

So the $3 Shelter Challenge began – Throughout the month of May, readers pick an animal welfare organization from my list, put $3 in an envelope and mail it or donate online


The first year of the Challenge, readers sent in $1,100 to our shelters and rescues. Since that first Challenge, readers have donated nearly $79,000 to help our homeless pets!

Our shelter folk are extremely grateful for every cent, literally, they can raise to help those in their care.

It’s been an uphill battle to get back on their feet after the pandemic shut their doors to walk-ins and cancelled their vital fundraising events.

Many of them are still not allowing walk-ins and show their pets by appointment only.

However you donate, please also include a notation that your donation is for the $3 Shelter Challenge.


Please help our homeless pets, and maybe your future pet, today. Pick OUR SHELTER  send us $3.00
