Send a check, donate stock, vehicles &more


You can make a donation and receive a charitable deduction by writing a check to Woods Humane Society.  Checks can be mailed to 875 Oklahoma Avenue, San Luis Obispo, CA 93405.  You can also make an Online Donation.  


By Donating Stock you own to Woods before the end of the year, you can receive tremendous tax benefits. You will receive a tax deduction for the current market value of the stock on the date of your gift, and avoid paying any gain if the stock has appreciated since you acquired it. As an example, if you purchased stock for $2,500 and it is now valued at $10,000 you would not be required to pay capital gains on the appreciated value.

Real Estate

Contributions of Real Estate can benefit our organization tremendously while offering you the tax benefit of avoiding capital gains tax on the appreciation in the value of the property.
