10 Things You Can Donate to a Shelter

March 22, 2013 by Tails Magazine in Rescue with 4 Comments


Every pet parent knows that animals require a lot of stuff. Shelters, who are tasked with the care of many animals at one time, often run short on supplies. By donating some of these much needed items (many of which you probably already have in your house), you can make a huge difference in the comfort and well-being of homeless pets.

Here are some common items that shelters need:

1. Newspaper

2. Toys

3. Blankets

4. Kennels and crates

5. Beds

6. Towels

7. Food and treats

8. Leashes and collars

9. Laundry detergent

10. Office supplies

Donate items new or gently used (though make sure to clean them first). To get help from your community and bring in more items, organize a shelter drive.

Giving a shelter supplies is a great way to make a difference and can make the stay much more comfortable for a homeless animal.
