Adoption Center & Community Support Donations

This is a great way to help an animal while knowing exactly how your donation will be used. Take a look at our Wish List. There are many options to choose from, and we need everything on the list! You may drop off your donation during business hours at our Adoption Center or our Thrift Store.

We cannot accept food that has been opened, is expired, or needs to be refrigerated.

Thrift Store Donations

Our Thrift Store is only as good as the donations we receive. Our supporters continue to be so generous by donating to us when they are downsizing, cleaning out, or replacing gently used items.

You may drop off merchandise donations at the store in the rear of the building Tuesday – Friday, 9:30 AM – 2:00 PM. Donations for the Adoption Center are accepted during all business hours. All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax-deductible! Visit our Thrift Store page to find out what donations are accepted.

The Thrift Store does offer FREE pickup service for furniture or large quantities of donations. Please call (828) 620-3150 to schedule a pickup.
