In-Kind Donations/Supplies

The Humane Society of North Iowa relies on donations to operate and manage our shelter.  We go through A LOT of supplies!   Can you help us by donating some of these items?
Below is a list of supplies we are always in need of:
                    • Cat Litter: non-clumping kind (high demand item)

                    • Dry Puppy Food-Science Diet, Purina or other high quality brand
                    • Soft treats for dogs (Snausages, Beggin Strips, etc…)
                    • Cat treats

                    • Forever Postage Stamps
                    • Puppy pads
                    • Fleece blankets, old towels (no poly-fill comforters or pillows please)
                    • Office supplies: pens, white copy paper, mailing envelopes
                    • Peanut Butter (we use this in Kong toys for our dogs)
                    • TOYS!  Our cats and dogs love toys!
                    • Newspapers to line cat kennels with (non-glossy pages only please)
Monetary contributions to help pay for these items are always  greatly appreciated!
People often ask why we don’t need regular dog and cat food donated.  It is because the Humane Society of North Iowa is fortunate enough to be a part of the Hill’s Science Diet Shelter Nutrition Partnership!  We are provided a supply of high quality Hill’s Science Diet adult cat and dog food to feed to our shelter animals and we only pay for the shipping and handling! (we do encourage cash donations to offset this expense!)
