And you thought kids need lots of stuff!

Providing quality care for our shelter animals on a daily basis requires having numerous supplies on hand. Proper food and nourishment, medical evaluation/treatment, foster placement, training/obedience, and humane education are the essentials for such care. You can help by donating items from our wish list!  Monetary donations are also greatly appreciated as it costs $30 per day to care for each animal in our shelter. For more information about donating goods and/or services, please contact the Development Associate at 616-791-8057.  Thank you!
