Donate to LTBHS this Holiday Season

At Little Traverse Bay, you can give a meaningful gift this holiday season—the gift of a second chance to a homeless animal. There are a number of ways to support the animals at LTBHS this year. Check out some of them below!

Check out our Annual Gift Giving Guide
Give hope this season with a gift from our Gift Giving Guide! Your gift this holiday season means a world of difference to a homeless animal and allows us to continue to save the lives of those in need. Learn more here.

Purchase a 2024 LTBHS Calendar
Our 2024 Calendars are on sale NOW! Buy one for yourself or for a friend/family member. Purchase yours here.

Purchase a LTBHS Ornament
Created by Little Traverse Tileworks, these ornaments make a beautiful gift and can be purchased here. 

If you’re on Amazon, check out our Wish List. Be sure to review our Chewy Wish List, as well. Products from both wishlists can be shipped directly to the shelter. There are also SO many amazing local stores to shop at—many of which support our organization!

“Like” and share
“Like” and share social media posts and help spread the word about what’s taking place at the shelter! Spreading awareness will help our shelter animals find homes for the holidays, which is what we’re all rooting for! Check out our Facebook page

Get kids on board
Kids love to lend a helping hand, especially when there are animals involved! Have children make and sell ornaments or host a hot chocolate/baked goods fundraiser in support of the animals. Kids have a blast and can feel good about contributing to their community!

Buy coffee
What do coffee and animal shelters have to do with each other? At Grounds & Hounds Coffee Co., a portion of your sale goes back to support the shelter of your choice. We receive funds for our shelter pets and you have a comforting morning beverage-win-win! Use the code littletraverse15 to support LTBHS.

Get involved in LTBHS fundraisers
Each year, LTBHS hosts several fundraisers to help support the lifesaving work at the shelter. There are many ways to become involved. Donate an auction item or experience to an event, volunteer, attend, or become an event sponsor! Learn more about LTBHS fundraisers by contacting Events Coordinator, Carol Giles, at

The gift of membership
What do you get the person who has it all? A membership to LTBHS, of course! Our members are the backbone of our organization and allow us to care for the 500-plus animals who enter our facility annually. Members have a number of benefits, including a subscription to our Pet Gazette magazine, discounts, and swag! Give the gift of Membership here.

Get a new ride!
Now through January 3, when you buy or lease a new Subaru, $250 will be donated to the charity of your choice, which includes four national originations and one local one–in this case–LTBHS! A big thank you to Subaru by the Bay for choosing LTBHS as the local charity to participate in the Subaru Share the Love Event.
