AWS Wish List

We are so grateful for donations of supplies! Thank you for standing beside us as we help animals in need. By choosing items from our list of the 4Fs, we can focus our resources on medical care, rescue missions, and animal comfort.

Food: Keeping our animals on one brand of food during their stay avoids upset stomachs. Other pet food (such as Old Roy and store brands) are gratefully received by local food pantries to assist area pet owners in feeding their pets.

Fun: Our animals love to have fun. We do our very best to keep their minds engaged and bodies active during their stay.

  • Durable dog toys last the longest and are the safest for use in our kennels. We love Kongs, Nylabones, Orbees, rawhides and bully sticks.
  • Cat nip pillows and toys, and interactive cat toys such as jingle balls are purr-fect.
