The kennel always appreciates any donations!! Things we could use are- Collars, Leashes, Towels, Treats, Canned Dog Food, Dawn Dish Soap, Paper Towels, and Pine Sol. Please visit if you would like to donate a Kuranda Shelter bed so the dogs can sleep comfortably. Kuranda beds are chew proof, easily cleaned platform beds that give the dogs a place to relax off the concrete floors.
