Shelter Wish List

Always needed; always appreciated

It takes a lot of stuff to keep a shelter going. Cleaning supplies, pet supplies, office supplies, gas-the list goes on and on. That’s just the day to day needs. Concrete is easy to clean, but makes a hard, cold bed, so Helping Strays uses Karunda Beds in our runs. There is always one that needs replacing. Crates for adoption events and foster families are always in short supply. Then there are the really expensive items that, if available, would make things easier. Here is a list of items, large and small, that would be greatly appreciated and put to good use.

Priority Needs

  • Paper towels
  • Kongs, large and king size
  • Nylabone chew toys, especially large
  • Esbilac puppy formula
