Although our shelter pets are fed, we accept donations of non-expired pet food, which are distributed to community members in need. If the package is opened, we ask that you please close it up as best you can.

You can donate most vehicles, including cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles, and recreational vehicles. Donated vehicles do not have to be in running condition. Your vehicle donation will be sold at an auction or to salvage, depending on condition.
Yes! The Lawrence Humane Society is a non-profit organization, and all donations qualify as a charitable deduction on your federal income tax return.
To donate your vehicle, the title to your car must be in your name. Vehicles for Charity will also need information about where your car is located and the condition of your car to assist in scheduling appropriate towing arrangements.
A towing company organized through Vehicles for Charity will call you to schedule the pick-up of your vehicle. At the time of pick-up, you will need to provide the driver with keys to the vehicle and your signed title.

The IRS allows you to take a charitable tax deduction on your federal income tax form equal to the amount the vehicle sells for at auction, unless it sells for less than $500. If your vehicle sells for less than $500, you may deduct no more than $500. If your vehicle sells for more than $500, you will need to include the IRS form 1098C with your tax returns.

Vehicles for charity will supply this documentation after your vehicle sells. We recommend you consult your tax advisor with questions about your deduction.
