Other Ways to Help

There are many ways to help the shelter pets at the Animal Welfare Society each and every day.


Your returnable bottles and cans can be contributed to our Clynk account simply by collecting them in Clynk bags and using AWS tags when you drop the bags off at any Clynk recycling station (at Hannaford grocery stores). We have bags and tags available to pick up in our adoption center lobby.


You can help our animals EVERY TIME you shop at Amazon.  Be sure to log in via smile.amazon.com and select the Animal Welfare Society as your preferred charity.  We will receive a small percentage (0.05%) of all qualifying purchases as a donation from the Amazon Smile Foundation.


Donating a car you no longer use is a great way to help the animals!  Most any vehicle is accepted, including cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles and RVs! In most cases, vehicles do not need to be in new or even running condition. Restrictions based on the vehicle’s condition may apply, especially for non-cars. The vehicle must have an engine and be towable. Towing is free and is scheduled at your convenience. Your vehicle will be sold at auction or to salvage based on condition, with proceeds coming directly to AWS! Vehicle donations qualify as a charitable deduction on your federal income tax return. Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions to learn how easy it is to donate your vehicle. Ready to get started?

Calling all cat lovers! Do you use Fresh Step? They have a rewards program where you can donate points from your cat litter boxes to your favorite shelter. We use the points to get litter or coupons, depending on our needs at the time!

Fresh Step is introducing its new Paw Points Rewards app, which makes it easy to donate directly to AWS. The app is free, fun and cat approved. You can download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play.


Kuranda makes beds for dogs and cats that are durable, sturdy and comfortable. We use them at the shelter. They offer a program where 10% of sale proceeds will be donated to AWS when supporters buy Kuranda beds for home use
