How to Donate to Our Holiday Shelter Supply Drive

The holidays are a time to remember those in need, and our furry friends are very much included. This December, join the staff at the Lincoln Avenue Veterinary Clinic in our annual charity drive to help shelter dogs and cats enjoy a happier holiday season. Our Holiday Shelter Supply Drive, which goes to benefit the Humane Society of Silicon Valley, allows everybody to make a difference in the lives of shelter animals. Here’s what you should know about the drive:

What can I donate?

There are a number of items that are always in demand at the shelter. Durable, well-made toys for cats and dogs are always welcome, especially any and all KONG toys. The shelter can always use more blankets and towels to help keep the animals warm and secure. If you have any feral cat traps you don’t need, feel free to donate them to the shelter. Finally, instant coffee—for the shelter elves—makes a great addition to any donation.

What shouldn’t I donate?

One thing the supply drive doesn’t need is pet food and pet treats. Some of the animals at the shelter have allergies, and many of them have specific diets that they have to follow to stay healthy. This unfortunately means that any donated pet food can’t be used. If you have creamy peanut butter or baby food, however, those are welcome donations.

What if I don’t have anything to donate?

If you don’t have any pet toys or other supplies for cats and dogs to donate to the supply drive, you might consider making a cash donation. The Humane Society of Silicon Valley needs our help to provide animals with the care and treatment that they need, and donating money helps them purchase the necessary supplies. Any and all donations are much appreciated at this time of year—especially by the animals!
