Items Needed

Shelters and rescues require many everyday items to operate successfully. By donating an item from the following list, you can help take a little bit of the financial stress off of the individuals who run these organizations, as well as better the lives of the animals. There will be donation boxes available by the registration table at both the Run/Walk and the Benefit Dinner. Below you will find a list of some of the things we are trying to collect (Many of them you can find around your house for free!).
