We will help to find people to foster, gift cards to purchase food and supplies, gently used and new pet beds, crates, bowls, toys, towels and blankets. Donations are welcomed. Cash contributions are welcome and checks are to be made payable to the animal rescue group of your choice for medical needs.

Proceeds will benefit four non-profits dedicated to animal rescue, protection, and placement:
