Rehabilitating injured animals entrusted to our staff frequently requires intense veterinary care.  We hope you’ll review the list below and bring an item with you when you visit the facility, which will in turn allow us to use our baseline budget for the general care and well being of our existing collection. Please make sure all food items are in the original, sealed package. Your generosity and support is greatly appreciated.

 

We LOVE gift cards for Home Depot, Lowes, Vons, Stater Bros, Petsmart, etc.
