If outside those hours, we have a tan plastic storage box (near the hose) where you can leave items. Please email to note that you have left items, so we know to retrieve them!

If you prefer giving specific items such as food, litter, toys, blankets, treats, etc., we are always in need of so many things!  To help give you an idea of things we regularly need, we have created a wish list on both Amazon and Chewy.  You are always welcome to send us other items, but these lists serve as a baseline for the things we routinely run low on - and we are most grateful for anything you're willing to donate to our rescue.  Thank you!


If you have a vehicle, especially a van, that IS running, please email us – we might be able to use it!  If you have an old, unused car- or one that is NOT running - you can donate to help our animals!
