Ways to Donate

Help us support others

It is with time, talent and treasure (donations) that we are able to sustain our animal welfare operations. We graciously rely on donations, both monetary and in-kind, as well as the time donated by our volunteers, to support our programs and community outreach efforts. 


Individual Giving

Give one-time or a recurring donation. Donate to memorialize a special pet or to honor a loved one. If you are mailing a donation, please mail checks to: 3341 Vincent Road, Pleasant Hill CA 94523


Vehicle Donations

Donate your old car, truck, boat, motorcycle or RV to CCHS for a tax deductible donation.


Emergency Medical and Special Needs Fund

Provide care to animals in need that might otherwise be harder to get adopted or be euthanized for a treatable health condition.


Workplace Giving

Employees can to donate a portion of their paycheck to eligible charitable organizations directly through payroll deduction. Employees can choose the amount they want to donate and select the charities they wish to support. The donations are deducted from their paycheck before taxes, which can provide tax benefits for the employee.


Matching Gift Programs

Many employers offer these programs where they match their employees’ charitable contributions up to a certain dollar amount or percentage. For example, if an employee donates $100 to a charity and their employer has a matching gift program with a 1:1 match, the employer will also donate $100 to the same charity, effectively doubling the impact of the employee’s donation.


Volunteer Grant Programs

Some employers also offer this type of  program where they make a monetary donation to a non-profit organization based on the number of hours an employee volunteers with that organization. Employees can log their volunteer hours, and once a certain threshold is reached, the employer will make a donation to the organization on their behalf.

Consult your place of employment on how to initiate the above two referenced giving options.
