2018 Giving Tuesday

Food for Thought – Save the Date!


You shouldn’t have to choose whether to feed yourself or feed your pet on Thanksgiving or any day – no one should. It’s why Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) distributes 20,000 pet meals every month to those in need through our pet food banks.

Recently, we delivered more than 2,390 pounds of dog food to our rescue partners at Gillespie Field during a Wings of Rescue event.

RCHS does so much more than feed dogs and falcons.  We provide shelter and veterinary care to homeless companion animals.  We relieve overcrowded county shelters and find forever homes for dogs, cats and rabbits.  We respond to community needs and natural disasters.  We educate your children. We provide a safety net for pets of domestic violence survivors, veterans, active duty military and families in crisis.  All thanks to you, our loyal supporters!      

As you plan your year-end donations, please include Rancho Coastal Humane Society on Giving Tuesday, November 27th. A generous donor will match every dollar up to $50,000! Turn $50 into $100, $1,000 into $2,000, $10,000 into $20,000 and, dare we say… $50,000 into $100,000!  

Or, why wait?

Donate now – the match will apply!


You can trust us. RCHS is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the highest rated in California by Charity Navigator, receiving 99.97 out of 100 possible points. RCHS recently achieved Gold status on GuideStar. 

We’re not the least bit shy about it. We’re asking you to join us on November 27th and have your donation matched up to $50,000, because Every Animal Deserves a Tomorrow ®.
