Stephen Memorial is a 501(c)3 non-profit so you donation is tax deductible.  EIN # 84-5003304

Employee Match

Matching gifts from your employer are a great way to double your donation to SMAS!  Talk with your employer to see if they have a matching program. 

Biscuit’s Food Cupboard Support

Every day the shelter gets notice of someone asking for pet food or they want to surrender a pet because they cannot afford their care. So we have created Biscuit’s Pantry to help the one’s in your community. Your gift helps a family in need to keeps pets where they belong: in their loving homes.

Planned Giving

Planned giving can allow you to donate more and make a difference that has a significant and lasting impact on the lives of animals. If you already have a will or trust, you should be able to add an amendment that fulfills your charitable wishes. There are additional tax benefits to these gifts and we recommend you discuss them with your legal advisor.

Or you can become a sustaining supporter of SMAS by making a monthly donation. You can make these donations either through your bank account or with PayPal.  You make all the difference for the homeless animals that you will support.

Molly's Medical Fund

Want to help animals who have needs that go beyond what is typical? Make a donation specified to Molly's Fund, our special needs program. This program supports cats and dogs that require extensive veterinary care.  Without Molly’s Fund, we would not be able to save certain dogs and cats because, as a nonprofit organization, we rely on the generosity of kind people who support our mission to end pet homelessness.

Sponsor a Fundraiser

You can help by becoming a sponsor of one of our annual fundraisers.  This is a great way to help meet the needs of the shelter and show the community you are a supporter of animal rescue!
