About Giving Tuesday

#GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. #GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity!

How Can You Help BRHA on #Giving Tuesday & Everyday?

  • Monetary donations, large or small, allow us to provide shelter, safety, food, medical attention and love to over 1,000 animals that come through our doors 365 days a year.
  • Community Pet Pantry donations of wet & dry dog and cat food will assist us in helping those in our community that need a little help feeding their pets as an alternative to having to surrender them.
  • Purchase or renew the BRHA specialty license plate at your local Motor Vehicle department.
  • Become a member.
  • Volunteer



Thank You for helping us help them


You won’t want to miss this event…this is not your ordinary bake sale! Do yourself a favor this holiday season and skip all the fuss of baking those holiday sweet treats by attending this unique “Cookie Walk, Bake Sale” on Saturday, December 10th, hosted by the Bitter Root Humane Association. 

Talented area bakers have been busy whipping up their favorite holiday cookies in every flavor, shape and size.  Shoppers can tour the cookie tables and choose their favorites in any quantity (sold by the pound) and stock up on all the other individually priced sweet treats of pies, cakes, breads & candies and of course there will also be goodies for our four legged furry friends!  

New this year, visit our “PAWS CAFE”, and treat yourself to a slice of homemade cake, pie or individual sweet treats to eat in or take-out! 

To accommodate our shoppers, this year’s event is being held at the accessible City of Hamilton Bedford Building, 223 S. 2nd Street in Hamilton with elevator service to the second floor and plenty of parking available.  Doors will be open 10 a.m. till 2 p.m. on Saturday, December 10th.   Plan to come early for the best selection since this event has sold out early in the past five years! 

All proceeds from the sale will be used by Bitter Root Humane Association to assist animals in need throughout the coming year.  For more information contact Mary at 642-3785 or email at dogmommary@aol.com
