Animal Services


Donations of items and monetary donations make it possible to provide exceptional care to animals in need.  Donated items can be dropped at the doors on the west side of the building if a staff member is not immediately available.  Our greatest needs are canned pate kitten and cat food and canned dog and puppy food.  Towels and blankets for bedding are also needed.  You can check our our AMAZON WISH LIST and have donation items sent directly to the shelter.
