Alternatively, you can conveniently shop our online wish lists at and,
or donate to our Cuddly crowdfunding campaign.

Our shelter is always in need of different things and donations allow us to do even more for the animals in our care. If you can't volunteer or foster, donating is another way to help the animals in your community. Starting a donation drive is a great idea for kids to also get involved. Request for birthday parties that gifts be "animal friendly." School programs can also host "pet food drives" and other events to help the animals in shelters in our area. Our wishlist is comprised of things we use the most. If you have any questions about things not listed please do not hesitate to ask.

Donations may be dropped off at the front desk during business hours.
