*Please note, there are certain items that we cannot utilize.  For example, bedding and toys must be something we can wash and sterilize daily.  Please check with staff before leaving donations at the shelter.  Items that cannot be used take up our limited space and valuable resources to dispose of them properly.  If you have not verified the acceptance of a donation with a staff member, please refrain from leaving the item(s) at our facility after hours. 

We appreciate our donors and thank you for supporting the homeless pets of Whitman County.
