    Humane Drum is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing aid to domestic animals in urgent need through  financial and product donations. Humane Drum’s mission is to bridge the gap between individual cases and  individuals that want to donate to a nonprofit organization that will help provide animals with the healthcare that they need and deserve.


    Our organization is founded on the belief that every animal deserves to be treated with care and kindness. We will begin our journey by focusing our attention on animal welfare and cruelty.  We collaborate with local shelters to save animals from abusive situations and help rehabilitate them.


    The world around us has changed.  With the introduction of Social Media, Information Saturation has finally reached a level where the goodness of people and the care in their hearts can finally begin to thoroughly saturate the highly invisible and horrible nature of animal abuse.


    Through hard work and education, we mean to truly make a difference and be the voice of those little friends that are voiceless.  To be the advocate that hopefully will be a part of a bigger picture of bringing health and wellness to the shadows and the darkness that surround these neglected and often tortured animals where all they do is bring joy comfort to so many and all they ask in return is love and all they need is food and warm dry place to sleep.


    In addition, our mission advocates for responsible and sustainable relationships between animals and humans.
    In addition to abuse prevention, we hope to educate people to follow responsible pet ownership. Not everyone is equipped to properly care for an animal.  We have to remember that these animals are a living being and not to be treated as possessions that are there for our enjoyment at our convenience.


    Pets are highly social beings and without proper human interaction, they suffer greatly.  It is important to have regular healthcare, walks, playing and close interaction and is a vital part of healthy pet ownership.


    Often times, due to life circumstances people may find themselves in a place with animals they can’t properly care for, we hope to bring those animals to others who will care and love them.


    Our Mission

    Is to work with everyone, be it people or organizations, to bring about the change at a core level of thinking to achieve our mission as described.  We shall achieve this through advocacy, education and kindness.


    We will look for solutions to eradicate ignorance and abuse when it comes to animals and encourage those who are of like minds.


    We will spread the word and continue the saturation information to allow everyone to bring out the good and kindness in their hearts and make the world a better place for everyone.


    We will bring help to those in need in form of access to spay and neutering, general veterinary care and information to prevent disease and illness.


    My Story

    My life was forever changed in the year 2011; I received news that my best friend, my confidant my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. This was one of the toughest moments in my life, I felt empty and lost as I reflected on what was truly important in life.  In those moments of pain  and heartache, my rescue dog, Luella was there for me.  She gave me love, affection and a happy tail wagging.  I realized during these times of heartache, pain, sickness, and loneliness my dog was always there for me.  She was returning the love and care that I have given to her all these  years. This made me think about the animals that don’t have a human to love them, pay for their medical bills or keep them safe. It was then when I had the vision to begin beating the Humane Drum, an organization that would help provide for animals that had no one to help them and in return give them a chance to find their forever home.


    In my life, I noticed that Luella knew when I wasn’t in a happy place and she came even closer to me.  Engaged me to play and even get naughty and in trouble, I now reflect back, possibly to get my mind off of what saddened me.


    It is a well know fact that pet companions have made an enormous and immeasurable difference in the life’s of people with pains and disabilities as well as returning soldiers with physical injuries and physiological damage from conflicts like PTS.  They find bombs for us, discover narcotics and assist law enforcement as well as people like me.



    We need financial support in order to help provide for the medical needs of animals who are victims of animal cruelty and neglect.


    Together we can help heal animals that are suffering.  Your donation will go to work instantly to help fund medical costs of those that require immediate medical attention and help make a life-changing difference for animals across the country.


    Your donation can help provide lifesaving surgery for an animal in need, perhaps help feed an abandoned or surrendered pet, provide shelter for animals that are in need of a forever home and very importantly, fund the training and support to those in the march against animal neglect.


    Everyone at Humane Drum would like to thank you for your contribution in our mission to provide the care that these animals deserve.

    I am reaching out to you to see if you or someone you work with would be willing to take our family dog and find a good home for her or keep her indefinitely. Her name is Bella and she is a 7-8 year old Belgian Malinois mix with severe separation anxiety issues. Over the last two months, she has damaged our home inside and out. Interestingly, when we are with her, she is a very loving affectionate, non barking, not biting dog. We are aware of what triggered this but have not solved how to get past it. In early October our smoke alarm batteries began chipping for low battery. The chirping for three hours straight, I am convinced, really scared and mentally harmed Bella as she tried to "escape" from inside our home, taking out four sets of window blinds and damaging the back entrance door to our home. While put outside a few days ago while we went to lunch, she seriously damage the wood on the back door of our house. We are at a point where it would be best if Bella could find a stable nurturing home where companionship, even if simply being in elsewhere in the home (so she knows someone is there) would be the best place for her. We cannot accommodate that due to our work schedules. We are trying medication right now to see if it qualms her anxiety but it seems like a short term solution. Some important info about Bella:

    She is spayed, house broken, micro-chipped, current on all shots, including influenza, and just under 50 pounds. She is an indoor dog but has stayed outdoors during the day in the past. She is great with children and other dogs. She is gentle when given a treat or when eating. She would do best in a home where someone was present at all times such as a senior, retiree or someone with land/farm as noted above.

    I want to be as transparent as possible about her and the care she needs. She is a wonderful dog and just wants lots of love and people around. It is incredibly emotional for us to be in the situation, but we have to do what is best for Bella.

    I hope this is helpful information and helps paint a good picture of our dog. If you have any questions, please call me directly at 916-698-6378 Thank you for your time.
