Wish List for Dogs at the County Shelter

Wish list for dogs at the county shelter

Thank you for considering ways to help our shelter! While we accept many types of donations, the items listed below would benefit our dogs the most. Our focus is on enrichment and the best toys are the ones that can keep a dog's mind busy. Also, as you can imagine, treats and medical supply donations are always needed.

Donations can be dropped off at the shelter Monday-Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. No appointment is needed. However, if you would like to visit the dogs when you drop off your donation, consider stopping by during adoption viewing hours Tuesday-Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thank you!
