There are many items that we need regularly to keep our shelter running and our animals well cared for. Consider donating items routinely used for our animals, either by dropping them off at our shelter or ordering them from our Amazon Wishlist.

Donations that you choose to drop off at our Newark shelter may be placed at our front door during our regular hours: Wednesday through Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., or Tuesday 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
