Wish List & Special Needs


As a nonprofit animal shelter that touches the lives of thousands of dogs and cats each year, it takes a continuous stream of supplies and skills to provide the food and care each animal deserves. Please check out our list below of pet related items that we can always use.

We have two donation stations!

One is in our adoption center parking lot of our main campus at 11300 Nacogdoches Rd. We also have a second donation station inside the Paul Jolly Center for Pet Adoptions located at 210 Tuleta Dr. We’re open daily at both locations from 11am-7pm. You can drop-off your donations anytime between those hours!
