Donate to Animal Services Today!Donations are tax-deductible under 501(c)3.

The Shelter is always in need of donated items such as blankets, towels, newspapers, food, litter, etc. Many of these items are used to help keep the shelter clean but also provide more comfortable conditions for the animals while under our care.

We also accept donations of new and lightly-used animal-related items such as carriers, kennels, bowls, scratching posts, hamster cages, etc. These items are recycled to new owners and shelter visitors at a fraction of their original cost in the form of donations.

Donated items can be dropped off at the shelter during normal visitation hours.

All donated funds are placed in a special trust fund for the animals, designated specifically for the prevention of animal over-population. We use these funds to help cover the cost of a veterinarian who performs sterilizations before adoptees leave the shelter, medications and testing supplies, and general animal welfare. Donated funds stay at the shelter and are used solely for animal welfare. Make a donation online now!
