Our Wish List at the Animal Welfare Society

AWS relies on donated supplies and materials to help offset the cost of sheltering more than 4,000 animals per year. We use our most needed items every single day.

We are so grateful to every single supporter who stops by with a much needed donation for our animals. Thank you!

If you’re not local or can’t stop by during our open hours, please visit our Amazon Wish List. Many of the items listed here can be found at Amazon. Shipping is usually free and the items are delivered right to our doors! Be sure to log in to your Amazon account at smile.amazon.com and .5% of your purchase price will be donated by the Amazon Smile Foundation to AWS.
