We welcomed a large transfer of puppies last night, and in order to accomodate all of the residents we will be closing the shelter at 3:00 PM on Friday, April 20th. We may be opening late tomorrow so check back in the morning for updates on our hours of operation.
Wish List Items
Every in-kind donation helps us save money that can be used to help even more animals. Below is a comprehensive list of items we use on a regular basis.
If you are financially able, please consider "green" (environmentally friendly) brands if possible such as Method or Seventh Generation. These products are not only environmentally friendly, but these companies do not test on animals or use animal ingredients. They can be found at Target, Organic stores, Lowe's and usually at Farm Fresh and Harris Teeter.
Check out our wish list on Amazon.com too!
