NCSPCA Our Wishlist

We are very grateful to all of the many generous individuals who bring donations to the shelter.  Your donations—from kitty litter to bedding to toys to newspapers—help our staff tremendously in the day-to-day task of providing personal care for each and every animal in the shelter.  We recognize that each donation, whether large or small, is given with love to support our mission.  

Often people ask, “What can we give to the shelter?"  "What do you need?” After discussion with the staff, we have compiled a Wish List: the items that are used often by the staff and that are needed for everything from feeding the animals and cleaning the cages to playing with the cats and walking the dogs.  

The list below sometimes gives specific details because the staff has learned that certain products or collars or bedding work best in our shelter. As you read the list below, please keep in mind that a roll of paper towels is just as welcome as a bag of kitty litter.  

If you'd rather shop online and have it delivered directly to us, here is the link to our Amazon Wishlist.
