Help Us Stock Our Shelter with Needed Supplies

In addition to monetary gifts, in-kind donations of supplies are always needed for the basic operation of our shelter, and to better the lives of the animals in our care. From food to towels to cleaning products, the Women’s Humane Society has many ongoing supply needs. In-kind donations are not only tax-deductible, but also greatly appreciated.

General Wish List

Items on our shelter’s general wish list can be viewed and/or purchased through Amazon.

Kitten Wish List

Hundreds of kittens pass through our shelter each year. Their care and fostering requires special needs, and donations such as formula and nursing bottles are invaluable. Items on our kitten wish list can also be viewed and/or purchased through Amazon.

You can further the impact of your gift by purchasing items on our wish lists through AmazonSmile. Simply designate the Women’s Humane Society as your preferred charity, and Amazon will donate back 0.5% of your eligible purchases.

Please note that we cannot use the following items in our shelter: comforters, pillows, dog beds, plastic bowls, litter pans and electric feeding dishes. While we are greatly appreciative of your thoughtfulness, we ask that you please refrain from bringing these items to the Women’s Humane Society. Such items may have to be discarded at a cost to the shelter, which takes away resources from our animals in need. Thank you for your cooperation!

In-kind donations can be dropped off at the Women’s Humane Society during normal business hours.
