Anderson Animal Shelter Wish List

Anderson Animal Sheter Wish List Anderson Animal Sheter Wish List

To care for the animals served by Anderson annually, the shelter needs many supplies. Please consider holding a “drive” for the shelter or making a donation on your own.

The supplies are used to keep our animals fed, comfortable and entertained and the items listed below are always in demand. Every month, the shelter uses 4500 pounds of dry food, 1020 pounds of canned food and 4000 pounds of kitty litter! You, your family, school, youth group or troop can conduct a drive to collect wish list items and bring them to the shelter. Monetary donations are also always welcome and will be put to good use. All donations can be dropped off during regular shelter hours.

Thank you!
