HIGH PRIORITY ITEMS:
Long-lasting chew treats like bully sticks to give dogs something fun to do during quiet time in their kennels
Kong spray or spray cheese, as a special treat during medical check-ins or to help our nervous friends overcome scary situations
Canned chicken, which is good for a bland "upset tummy diet" and appealing to picky eaters
Feliway diffuser refills for our cats
Feliway is a synthetic copy of the feline facial pheromone, used by cats to mark their territory as safe and secure. By mimicking the cat’s natural facial pheromones, Feliway creates a state of familiarity and security in the cat's local environment. As a result, Feliway can help comfort and reassure cats while they cope with a challenging situation and help prevent or reduce the stress caused by a change in their environment. We use Feliway diffusers in each of our cat rooms. Click here to purchase diffuser refills for our kitties.
Power strips for our cat rooms so that we can safely plug in Feliway diffusers and white noise machines or radios for a calming effect (total of 6 needed)
Adaptil diffuser refills for our dogs
Adaptil helps to reduce or prevent stress related behavior in the shelter setting. Click here to purchase diffuser refills.
Essential oils for our animals
The scents of vanilla, patchouli, chamomile, lavender, and Sandalwood can have a calming effect on the animals in our care. Note: Currently we have plenty of lavender and need the other scents
Paper towels and drawstring kitchen trash bags in particular!
