Ways to Donate

Brown County Humane Society would not be able to enhance the lives of the animals in need without the support and donations from generous individuals, businesses and volunteers.  Monetary donations and memorial gifts are tremendously valued.  One hundred percent of these donations goes to the care of the pets at the shelter.  BCHS is a 501(C)3 non-profit organization so all contributions are tax deductible.

A financial donation is the most significant gift that you can make to support our work with animals in need – we couldn’t do it without your help.  BCHS welcomes many types of gifts to the organization.  Some example of ways people have helped:

  • Employee Giving
  • Memorial Donations (Pet and Persons)
  • Planned and Estate Gifts
  • Fundraisers
  • Corporate Partnerships and Sponsorships

All contributions can be mailed or dropped off at the shelter at 1301 South Valley Street in New Ulm.  If you have any questions, call the shelter at 507-359-2312 and someone will assist you.  Please leave a message if the shelter is closed.

Aluminum Recycling Benefits Everyone!

Brown County Humane Society asks the New Ulm community to help in recycling aluminum cans. There is a recycle bin at the BCHS Shelter at 1301 South Valley Street in New Ulm as well as a bin on the east side of Pizza Ranch. Royal Tire maintains the recycle bin at the Humane Society, transports and sells the aluminum cans for the shelter. The money raised goes into the shelter’s general fund to help care for the dogs and cats.

Please help by recycling your aluminum cans!
