Frequently Asked Questions

What can I donate?
You can donate almost any vehicle, including cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles, and recreational vehicles. Donations do not have to be currently running. The vehicle will be sold at an auction or to salvage depending on condition.

Is my donation tax-deductible?

Yes, the Humane Rescue Alliance is a non-profit organization and all donations qualify as a charitable deduction on your federal income tax return. Please consult a tax professional for further information.

What do I need to donate my car?

The title to the car must be in your name, and all liens must be released prior to donating the vehicle. We will also need some information about where the car is located, the condition of the car, and current mileage. You will also need to provide the vehicle keys to the towing company.

Will you pick up my car?
A towing company will call you to schedule the pick-up of your vehicle. You will need to give the driver the keys to the vehicle as well as your signed title.

How is the value of my car determined?
The IRS allows you to take a charitable tax deduction on your federal income tax form equal to either the value of your vehicle up to $500, or the amount that your vehicle sells for if over $500. Please consult a tax professional to determine your tax benefit.
