Donate to H.O.P.E.

HOPE Animal Shelter is Gogebic County's (MI) & Iron County's (WI) only animal shelter, providing shelter, food, and medical care to over 500 animals each year. Beyond the basics, each animal receives compassionate care from our staff and volunteers while they wait to be reunited with their families or to find a new home. We need your help to provide for the daily care and feeding of the animals who need us.

Your donation to the HOPE Animal Shelter stays in the community to help animals in need. You’ll be joining hundreds of other people dedicated to finding homes for abandoned pets, rescuing abused and neglected animals, and preventing animal abuse and overpopulation through education. We understand that the animals’ needs come first and make sure your donations provide maximum care for the animals you care about.

Your on-line donation is safe, secure and private.

If you would prefer to mail in a donation please send it to:
HOPE Animal Shelter
PO Box 261
Ironwood, MI 49938


Support the animals through a sponsorship. You can recognize your family, pet, or loved one with a donation sponsorship. It’s a great way to show you care for the animals who come to the HOPE Animal Shelter every year.

Memorials & Tributes

With a tribute gift, we will notify your special loved one of your thoughtfulness. The HOPE Animal Shelter tribute gifts are a wonderful way to:

  • Remember a loved one or a cherished pet

  • Give the perfect gift to someone who has “everything”
  • Honor your mom on Mother’s Day or your dad on Father’s Day

A gift to the animals is truly a caring tribute. If you include with your gift a family member’s contact information, we will gladly notify the family of your thoughtfulness.
