Thank you to all of our wishlist donors! We are always grateful for donations of new and gently-used supplies.

Items we cannot use include pillows, comforters, glass aquariums and small to medium sized animal cages. We often need gently used towels, sheets and pillow cases but we have no more space for storage at this time.

Wishlist items can be dropped off at the Sanctuary. We might have additional drop-off locations in the city this spring or summer. Please contact us by email for the drop-off locations.
