Our center relies on donations to help our furry friends. One of our biggest needs is dog and cat food.  Our food bills are nearly $22k every year!  We feed any good quality DRY food for dogs and cats.  We also use canned food, specifically for special needs animals for puppies & kittens.

We also use regular cat litter.  Clumping litter is NOT used in shelter environments as the litter has to be totally discarded every couple of days, so it is not cost efficient.

We accept towels, blankets, wash cloths, carpeting and sheets.  If a pet won’t eat or destroy a blanket or towel, they will get one to lie on.  

Our Wish List: We are always in need of the following items:

  • Towels and blankets 
  • Canned cat food 
  • Cat litter and pans
  • Bound carpet samples
  • Pet carriers 
  • Pet toys 
  • Leashes and collars
  • Food dishes
