One of the ways you can help make the biggest impact for homeless pets is to give – money and goods – to your local animal shelter.
While some animal shelters are taxpayer-funded, some private shelters and rescue groups are donor-funded. For non-profit groups, how many animals they can save and the amount of staff they can provide all depend on donations. Shelters can also benefit from people donating items on their “Wish Lists” such as cleaning supplies, specified brands of kitten and puppy food.
General Wish List Items
Gift cards to pet stores and/or office supply stores
Dog or cat treats (unopened)
Cat toys (ex. Kongs or plastic toys)
Dog toys (ex. Kongs or large Nylabones)
Fleece blankets/bath towels
Wet cat/kitten food
General office/shelter supplies
