Drop Off Donations

You can also drop off Wish List donations any day of the week from 9 am-6 pm at:

  • East Campus at 1000 Lyndon Lane, Louisville. There is a donation bin outside the front door.
  • Sam Sam Pet Treatment & Lifesaving Center (also called the Main Campus) at 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville. Go to the end of the parking lot and leave donations outside the Admissions doors.

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.
