Donate Now to the Blue Earth Nicollet County Humane Society (BENCHS)

More than a shelter…

Since 1969, the support of caring donors like you has funded BENCHS as it has placed thousands of animals in their forever homes. Your donation will directly assist dogs and cats who find themselves in need of a helping hand: for spay/neuter surgeries, veterinary care, foster homes, facilitate pet adoptions, and much more. We rely on gifts from individuals to assure safe, enriching comfortable shelter care.

BENCHS has always been an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to caring for homeless animals and adopting them into loving families. We do not receive funds from any other Humane Society or animal welfare organization.

If you have questions or experience technical difficulties with the donation form, please call 507-625-6373 or email [email protected].

Tribute Gifts

Recognize, honor, or celebrate your pet, friend, or loved one by helping pets in need.

Want to recognize an animal lover in your life? Or maybe honor a loved one? You can celebrate a friend’s birthday or co-worker’s wedding. When you make a tribute donation, your gift becomes a personal way to recognize your family member, friend, neighbor, co-worker, or furry friend by giving to homeless dogs and cats in our community.

BENCHS serves over 1,000 cats and dogs each year and your donation will make a meaningful impact. When you make a donation, either online or at the shelter, please indicate that you would like your donation to be a tribute gift: “In Honor of” or “In Memory of.”

Thank you for allowing BENCHS to be a part of your tribute. We are so appreciative of your support.
