Ways You Can Help

1. Please Give Money if you can: Any amount will be greatly appreciated...lots of clients give an extra $5 when they pay their bill...and it helps a lot.

2. We always need these items:
We use a lot of towels in our kennels and cat house, partly for cleaning but mostly for the pets to lay on. We also use a lot of bath mats, but we need things that can go through the washing machine in quantity. We have 6 washing machines going all the time trying to keep up with over 100 pets we sometimes have at the clinic and shelter.

3. If you give us canned pet food: we use it as treats for strays and sometimes for sick patients, so that would be a great gift. We have to be very careful, though, with changing dry dog food on our dogs lest we cause diarrhea, so dry dog food is not a great gift, but still, if you have a bag your dog doesn't like we will be grateful to have it, but don't go out and buy it...we'd rather have the money.

4. Give time and love: Our stray pets would love more walks and play time and especially just petting and touching...drop by when you have 20 minutes and ask to walk or play with the strays. Or if you're really an angel...take one or two of the more socialized pets home for the weekend to give them a break from their caged life.   (See note below about volunteering.)

5. Give us your referrals: When the subject comes up, let people know that we have pets for adoption.

And let people know about our web sites:

6. If you enjoy yard work or gardening: consider helping us keep all our shrubs and garden areas maintained.  It's a big job keeping our grounds spruced up.  We have about 10 acres of woods, ponds, and trails where we walk and play with the dogs.

7.  Help us write grant requests asking foundations for their donations.

8.  Attend and get involved in our fund raising events.

9. Last ... but not least ... ADOPT!!

INFORMATION FOR VOLUNTEERS
We're always grateful to have volunteers who want to donate their time and effort to our shelter. However, we need to have some simple rules in order to protect the safety and well-being of both our animals and our volunteers:
