Gifts In-Kind

"In Kind" donations are items like pet food, dog treats, cat towers, blankets, copier paper and other tangible items that are not cash, check or credit card.

At our non-profit animal shelter, your In Kind Donations are much appreciated. You will receive a Donation Form where you fill in the item(s) that you are donating. You have the option to receive a thank you letter.

The value of In Kind Donations is left to you and your tax preparer, and we encourage you to include the condition of the item (such as "desk, good condition" or "washing machine, new") and for you to keep all your original receipts.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, your In Kind Donations are eligible as a TAX DEDUCTION as allowed by law. Check with your CPA or tax attorney for more details.

On behalf of our shelter animals, we thank you!
