General Donations

Each critter that comes in receives $150+ worth of care in the form of shots, flea/worm treatments, first aid if necessary, and vetting. Basic donations are what keep our dogs and cats healthy and adoptable.

Pet Beds

Pet beds keep our critters off the cold concrete, and help them stay comfortable. If you donate a Pet Bed to the SPCA of Polk County, the ARA will ship it directly to us.

  3. Check SPCA of Polk County - Texas at checkout


We are always in need of food. We prefer to give our critters Pedigree or Purina, but we aren't picky. Puppy/Kitten food and canned food is also greatly appreciated.

Kitty Litter

Discussions  with other shelters housing cats led us to eliminating the usual clay  & multi-cat commercial litters because of issues with dust &  chemicals harmful to cats with upper respiratory infections &  kittens. PINE PELLET STALL BEDDING, offered exclusively by Tractor  Supply, was the overwhelming choice as the preferred alternative to  other forms of cat litter. It is inexpensive and free of dust &  harmful chemicals.

Toys 'n Treats

We want to make our guests' time with us as enjoyable as possible, so treats--both for dogs and cats--rawhides, and toys are all appreciated. Cat hammocks and bedding also help the animals feel more comfortable.
