Donations help lower our overhead costs and are much appreciated. Or, if you donate money, we can buy in bulk and often save with a nonprofit rate!

Items can be dropped off between 9 am and 6 pm, 7 days a week, into our blue donation bin just inside our front door. We regret we are unable to pick-up any personal donations.

We always need:

  • Gently used or new bath towels (The bigger, the better! Washcloths okay, but please, no hand towels.)

  • Pet food in the original bag/can up to 3 months after the expiration date
  • Scoopable cat litter
