Select your type of donation from the following 3 choices:
#1. JOE'S FUND: 
Choose this option if you wish to donate for a special animal needing help that you have seen featured on our website, Facebook page or through our email newsletter or to give to Joe's Fund in general. (Joe's Fund pays for ALL medical care for the animals at Hillside.) This fund, created in memory of Joseph Parnell, son of Hillside SPCA Manager Barbara Parnell, is very special.  Originally intended to pay for spaying and neutering to save lives, the fund has taken on a vital importance in helping pay for ALL veterinary care.  With your help, the Hillside can grow and maintain this fund so they are able to help all kinds of animals in need - an animal that Joe would help in any way he could.
Choose this option to give a general donation to the Hillside. Click the "Make a Donation" button, then enter the amount you wish to donate. Please be sure the amount you enter reflects your intent. We've experienced donations intended to be $25.00 dollars being entered as $0.25 (25 cents). We encourage you to give as generously as your budget will allow. To help avoid fraud and compensate for fees associated with the transaction, we request a $15 minimum donation.

Choose this option to give monthly at the level of your choice; perfect for supporters who want to help on a continuing basis or wish to budget their donations. Use the drop down menu to choose the amount automatically charged to your credit card each month so you can be assured your generosity continues to help the Hillside throughout the year.  Be sure to choose a amount carefully.  The amount you choose will be charged to your credit card UNTIL YOU CANCEL your subscription through Paypal. See PayPal for more details.  (Of course, we hope that you don't cancel because the residents of the Hillside SPCA need your continuing support.)
