We constantly find ourselves low on many items that make our sheltered pets lives

so much nicer.

Canned food: Any kind and variety.

The dogs, cats, kittens and puppies all appreciated it!

Treats: Any kind, any variety - mostly large dog but our kitties enjoy treats too!

Toys: One could get bored sitting in a cage all day.

Beds: Kuranda bed makes an elevated, durable bed that is cool in the summer
and warmer in the winter.

(These nice people give a discount for shelter bed purchases.)
