We depend on your donations to help the dogs and cats in our care. We can use all pet-care related items, even those not listed below. Donations may be new, or used in good condition. You are welcome to drop off donations at the shelter any time during our regular business hours. And while you’re here, we invite you to say hello to the dogs and cats!
