How You Can Help


We also ALWAYS need help cleaning in the morning, socializing the dogs and cats, and helping out at 9 Lives Thrift.

Do you have time?

If you are an adult with health insurance and love dogs consider becoming one of our dog walkers. We have some great dogs that need some extra exercise. Our property has some wonderful trails that the dogs love!

TD Bank Affinity Program

Do you have a TD Bank account? Would you like to help the shelter at NO COST to you?? Join TD Bank’s Affinity Program!! Here’s how:

If you have an existing checking account, TD Bank will donate $10 to Harvest Hills. If you open a new checking account, TD Bank will donate $50 to Harvest Hills. For new or existing savings accounts, the bank will donate a percentage of the annual average balance. The more Harvest Hills supporters that bank with them, the more money we earn to support homeless animals! Remember, this is at NO COST to the participant!

Anyone can participate from any TD Bank branch by simply giving the Harvest Hills code for the Affinity Program Code: AF326

It is another great opportunity to support Harvest Hills at no cost to you!!!!

If you can’t adopt – foster…
If you can’t foster – sponsor…
If you can’t sponsor – volunteer…
If you can’t volunteer – donate…
If you can’t donate – educate, network, and cross post…
Everyone can do something, large or small, to help save a life…
