Donated Items Needed!

We always appreciate your monetary donations!  There are items that are needed on an ongoing basis that we occasionally have shortages of, and would really appreciate your donation of goods at this time.  The following items are urgently needed; please drop your donations by the Humane Society during Adoption Center hours.  Thank you!

  • Canned Dog Food (used to administer medicines)
  • Paper Towels, Bleach

Arm & Hammer Clump & Seal Kitty Litter (we use this particular kind currently because of a couple cats with allergies to regular clay litter, so brand specific is important)
