  • Delicious dog treats like Zukes, Blue Buffalo, Merrick, Beggin' Strips, Pup-Peroni, Old Mother Hubbard biscuits, or single ingredients treats
  • Cat food (canned & dry) to feed our many feline residents - Friskies and Fancy Feast are favorites, and Fussie Cat or Reveal are always good to have on hand for our picky eaters
  • Dog food (canned & dry) for our many hungry dog friends - Purina is always a popular choice, and our dogs especially love canned food with meat and gravy
  • Unscented, non-clumping kitty litter for our feline friends
  • Cleaning supplies like paper towels, disposable gloves, small bottles of hand soap, and drawstring kitchen trash bags
  • Kitten food (wet, dry, and KMR) to help our littlest meows grow strong
  • Long-lasting chew treats like Elk Antlers and nylabones give dogs something fun to do during quiet time in their kennels (NO rawhide, please!)
  • 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 and Adaptil diffuser refills for our cats and dogs to reduce or prevent stress related behavior in the shelter setting. You can purchase these diffuser refills from our Amazon Wish List
  • Clean straw for our outdoor feral cat shelters to keep them warm and comfortable

  • Procollar and Bite Not plastic collars for cats and dogs: In a continued effort to make every animal's stay here as comfortable as possible, HSCC is trying to move away from standard e-collars (coned shaped) that are bulky, awkward, noisy, and difficult to eat and drink with. Follow the links below to learn more about the inflatable ring and the plastic collar:
    • Procollar - Soft, comfortable, inflatable collar for post-surgery protection. We need all sizes: Medium, Large, and Extra Large
    • Bite Not - Offered in both dog and cat sizes. 5", 6", and 7" preferred
