We appreciate generous donations that keep our shelter clean and keep the animals we care for fed and comfortable. Donations may be dropped off at the shelter, but as ACOs are frequently out on calls, please bring any donations to the Police Department at City Hall (100 Municipal Circle) if no one is at the shelter. Please do not leave donations outside. Thank you for understanding.
