If you have an in-kind donation that you would like to send us or drop off, please fill out the following form.
Please ensure any donated equipment is ready for use clean and fully functional) so that it doesn’t affect the health and safety of our pets. Please review the following guidelines before submitting your donation:
1 - Ensure any donated equipment is complete, i.e. it doesn’t have any missing screws, or items that cannot be easily replaced (examples: missing doors from crates, irreplaceable bolts and screws, missing pumps from pet drinking water fountains). If there are important attachments or parts missing, the equipment cannot be safely used and should be discarded or better yet, recycled if possible.
2 - Blankets, dog beds, pillows, toys, etc. should all be in good condition and free of cuts and tears.
3- All washable equipment should be washed and disinfected:
- Crates rubber or plastic toys and bones: use 1 part bleach to 5 parts water for soaking. Comet is great to clean crates and remove grime! 🧼 🧽
- Cloth items (including bed covers, blankets, sheets, towels, etc., leashes and collars): use diluted bleach in the wash cycle to remove all pet odors and virus 🦠 or bacteria. Lysol has a new washing liquid that helps to address viruses also.
We sincerely thank you for your kind generosity and support!
