Did you know that charities like ours must spend a lot of money each year disposing of items that people leave for us but that we can't use?
We are so grateful for your generosity, but there are certain items that we either do not need, are unable to store, or that we are legally prohibited from using in our shelter.
Thank you so much for helping us spend our money on our pets--not on disposal fees!
Our donation bin is to the right of our front door and can be accessed 24 hours a day. Thank you!
