Wish List Items

Help Our Animals by Donating Needed Items

Our greatest wish liste needs are hand sanitizer, bleach, Lysol or bleach wipes, disposable latex gloves for cleaning (NOT surgery gloves, which should be reserved for human medical usage), hand soap and paper towels, as well as dog collars, leashes, crates and foster supplies for kittens, including kitten pate food, kitten milk replacer and Miracle Nipples bottles. Riding helmets, halters, Hoof pick/brushes and more for our horses.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, we prefer to have deliveries mailed to the Kentucky Humane Society, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville KY 40214. 

If we are unable to use donated Wish List items, we offer them to other animal shelters and pet food banks. If they cannot use them, items may be discarded.

All donations are tax deductible. Thank you for your support!
