We understand some people prefer to donate to us by buying specific goods rather than giving cash donations. We ask for your help in keeping our waste costs as low as possible by not donating items that we would have to pay to dispose of.

We don’t accept the following:

  • sleeping bags
  • shredded paper (we are accepting newspapers though).
  • human clothing
  • damaged beds
  • damaged kennels
  • damaged scratching posts
  • quilts/doonas
  • pillows and cushions

Before visiting one of our sites with your donation, please get in touch with our Contact Centre by email on or call  9770 7555 ahead of time. This way, we can be prepared to accept your donation and make sure it is put to the best use.

To guide you in selecting the items that we really need but can’t afford, we’ve created a wish list. By identifying items our shelters would like, your donation will go directly to the animals, staff and volunteers who need them most.
