Do you have used items that you want to donate?
We accept all items that are in relatively good condition that you have on hand. Dog/cat beds, toys, leashes, bowls, etc. Do you have opened food that your pet decided they did not like? We will take it as long as it’s properly sealed so it won’t spill. Medications are also accepted provided they are not expired and are in their original packaging – please contact us directly to arrange a drop-off for medications.
