Our Wishlist

In-kind donations help too! It isn't possible for us to list all of the items that we can and cannot use. If you have an item you are interested in donating to us that it isn't listed, just call and ask if we can use it! If something is donated to us that we aren't able to use or store in our facility we do our best to get it to someone who can put it to work. Often that is to other local non-profits that will use or be able to distribute the goods.

You can bring material donations by the shelter any time during our open hours.

You can also shop our Amazon or Chewy wishlists to have items shipped directly to the shelter, giving you the ability to help right from your home!
