Ways to support LTBHS

Looking for ways to become involved with LTBHS? Check out the ideas below!


Create your own fundraiser

Looking for a fun way to support the homeless animals at the shelter?  Consider hosting your own fundraiser.  This could be something as simple as asking for birthday gifts to be in the form of donations to LTBHS or it could be a work challenge at the office.  We’ve had a lot of creative folks come up with fantastic fundraising ideas that have made a huge impact on the organization.  If you’re a business looking to host a fundraiser, be sure to contact us in advance so we can help promote your event!


If you’re one of the many people who are ordering items on Amazon, then be sure to check out our Wish List.

Buy coffee

What do coffee and animal shelters have to do with each other? At Grounds & Hounds Coffee Co., a portion of your sale goes back to support the shelter of your choice. We receive funds for our shelter pets and you have a comforting morning beverage-win-win! Use the code littletraverse15 to support LTBHS.

“Like” and share

“Like” and share social media posts and help spread the word about what’s taking place at the shelter!  Spreading awareness about the animals who need forever homes helps them get adopted quicker too!  Check out our Facebook page

Get kids on board

Kids love to lend a helping hand, especially when there are  animals involved!  Children can even create their own fundraiser by hosting a lemonade stand or by selling baked goods. Kids have a blast and can feel good about contributing to their community!

Get involved in LTBHS fundraisers

Each year, LTBHS hosts several fundraisers to help support the lifesaving work at the shelter.  There are many ways to become involved.  Donate an auction item or experience to an event, volunteer, attend, or become an event sponsor! Learn more about LTBHS fundraisers by contacting Events Coordinator, Teresa Chaney, at [email protected] or 231-622-6356.

Make a donation

Whether it’s monetary or a donation of food or litter, every bit counts!  Or if you are passionate about a specific cause, check out our special programs such as the Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Program, Mutts With Manners Program, Furry F.A.C.E.S. and more!  Learn more about our programs here.

Donate your vehicle

Do you have a car, truck, boat, or RV that you’d like to donate?  We have partnered with the nonprofit organization, CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services), a donation program, to raise funds for LTBHS when you donate your vehicle.  Donating is extremely simple.  To learn more, check out their website here.


We have many volunteer opportunities including helping out at events, assisting in mailings, socializing cats/kittens, walking dogs, fostering animals, taking a dog on a field trip with our Kurgo Snout ‘n About Program (learn more about this on our website!) and more.  To learn volunteer opportunities best suited for you, contact us at 231-347-2396.
