Donate food for pets in need

The Pet Food Pantry provides dog and cat food to families and individuals in need of assistance and to homebound seniors through Meals on Wheels. It also helps us maintain our pet food supply for foster care families and provide pet food to other local animal welfare organizations. Cat food is always in particular demand! You can learn more about the program here.

Donate dog beds for our kennels

We want the dogs at the shelter to be as comfortable as possible while they wait to be reunited with their owners or find a new home. Our kennel floors are hard, so having a nice off-the-ground bed makes a huge difference. Kuranda allows you to purchase a bed for the shelter at a low price and have it shipped directly to the shelter. Click here to donate bed!
