Urgent Supply Collection Drive- One Day Only!  Saturday, September 26

We are asking for the public’s help as our supply of critical items have begun to run short.  On Saturday, September 26, volunteers will be on hand to accept and process donations at the shelter located at 104 Portsmouth Avenue, in Stratham, NH, from 10:00 A.M.-2:00 P.M.

This is a one day only event and donors interested in helping are urged to come to the shelter during this time frame only!

For months, we have been unable to accept household donations due to safety concerns during the COVID-19 pandemic. But these items are so important to provide care and comfort for the animals.  Under normal circumstances, we welcome these donations every day.  But the shelter has remained open by appointment only due to COVID.  A further complication, the renovation of our buildings has begun and our campus is currently a construction site.  We need to limit traffic around our buildings to keep everyone safe.


Due to space and storage limitations brought about by the current construction project, we request that donations be limited to current urgent needs only.

Items Urgently Needed

Our volunteers will be on hand to process and organize the following items on September 26, 2020 from 10:00am- 2:00pm only.  Please do not leave items after hours, our campus is currently under construction and open by appointment only! 

Clean Towels of any size
Clean Fleece blankets/throws
Clean Flat sheets only ( no fitted sheets please!)
Clean Comforters

Items We Cannot Accept

The shelter has very limited storage space, and disposal of unneeded items becomes an unnecessary expense to the shelter. Please do not bring these items. Thank you for understanding!
